Ravens fear Ray Lewis, Lardarius Webb seriously injured, according to report

Monday October 15th, 2012

The Baltimore Ravens fear that two of their most important defensive players could be seriously injured with what could be season-ending injuries, NFL.com's Jeff Darlington reported via Twitter Sunday night.

Darlington reported that the team worries that linebacker Ray Lewis could have a torn triceps muscle and that cornerback Lardarius Webb could have torn his ACL. Both injuries occurred in the Ravens' 31-29 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Darlington reported that both players will have MRIs to determine the full extent of their injuries on Monday. But as of right now, the internal prognosis doesn't look good.

Both players are starters and key cogs in a defense that had allowed the seventh-fewest points per game this season entering Sunday's game. Lewis' history with the Ravens goes back to 1996, and he was a part of the Ravens' Super Bowl XXXV win over the Giants in 2001.
