Ray Lewis injury: Ravens worried linebacker has torn tricep

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis may have torn his triceps against the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's game.

If the worst case scenario holds true for the Baltimore Ravens, their long-time respected defense is about to take an even bigger hit with the injuries to linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb.

The Ravens had already lost linebacker Terrell Suggs, who tore his Achilles tendon early in the offseason and has missed the entire season so far as a result. Without Lewis or Webb, the Ravens' defense loses even more credibility, putting the pressure on Joe Flaaco and the Ravens' offense to make plays.

Over the years, Baltimore has slowly transitioned into a respectable offensive force, which it needs to be even more if key defensive players end up missing significant time.

There's no reported timetable for how long either Lew or Webb will be out, as this is just team speculation until the diagnosis is released.
