Baltimore awaiting word on Ray Lewis injury

Ravens LB's triceps injury season-ending?

BALTIMORE - UPDATE | Lewis and Webb out for season (click)

Many Baltimore Ravens fans are sitting on pins and needles today, awaiting word on the results of a planned MRI for team leader Ray Lewis.

The 37-year-old Lewis suffered a triceps injury to his right arm in the team's 31-29 win over Dallas Sunday . The injury came on a fourth quarter tackle of Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner.

In a post-game interview Sunday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh addressed Lewis' injury, as well as those of Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, Haloti Ngata and Ma'ake Kemoeatu. The injury of Lewis seemed to be less of an immediate concern.

" Lardarius Webb does not look good right now . It's a potential ACL," Harbaugh said. "We've got a problem there. We don't know for sure, but that's what it looks like right now. Haloti tweaked his knee a little bit, but he came back and played a little bit as you know. Ray has a triceps (injury), but I don't think it's really bad. We'll have to see on that. Kemo (Kemoeatu), it's OK.  …Jimmy Smith has a strain, and he needed to come out."

If it is found Lewis has a triceps tendon tear, the injury would be season-ending and possibly career-ending. The triceps is the muscle at the back of the upper arm and plays a major role in pushing and pulling. The injury would require surgery and rehabilitation.

In his 17 th season, Lewis is the NFL's active career tackles leader. The 13-time Pro Bowl participant also has more interceptions among active linebackers than any other player.
