Ravens’ Ray Lewis, Lardarius Webb lost for year
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will miss the remainder of the season with an arm injury, an enormous blow to an already depleted defense that has uncharacteristically struggled this year.
“Ray in the locker room afterward, we didn’t know (the extent of the injury) but he was worried about it,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday. “He said some things about his faith. He said some things that I’ll never forget.”
Lewis turns 38 in May, so it’s possible that Sunday’s game was his last.
Baltimore also lost cornerback Lardarius Webb for the year after he tore the ACL in his left knee Sunday. The injury occurred when Webb collided with Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant in the first quarter.
“I’m disappointed for those guys,” Harbaugh said. “It doesn’t matter how I or someone else feels about it. It’s their thing. These are guys that put so much effort, heart and soul into what they do.”
Webb missed the latter part of his rookie season in 2009 with a torn right ACL, and now he’s facing surgery again.
“Lardarius was distraught. I could see it when I walked onto the field, on his face,” Harbaugh said. “He kind of knew because he’s been through it before. I just felt like he knew. He was just beside himself.”
Lewis missed four games last year with a toe injury. During the week and on game day he cheered for his teammates and offered encouragement. That, evidently, will be his job over the next few months.
“When you look at his situation and what he’s accomplished, and what he was hoping to accomplish this year, he’s going to have to accomplish those things in different ways because that’s the way it’s gone,” Harbaugh said. “He puts his faith in providence. That’s where he’s going to go with that.”
Jameel McClain and Dannell Ellerbe will fill the void left by Lewis‘ absence. It’s the same role they filled last year.
