ray lewis*As you no doubt already know, if you’re a Baltimore Ravens and Ray Lewis fan, the future Hall of Fame linebacker’s season is done after experiencing a torn right triceps in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

But what really may be even more distressing news is that the injury looms as a possible career-ender, so to speak, for Lewis. And needless to say, it could also adversely affect the team’s season as well.

The Ravens’ season, too, hinges upon how the team responds to the loss of Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb, who tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in Sunday’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Coach John Harbaugh announced the findings of Monday’s MRIs at team headquarters. He said he had not spoken with Lewis since hearing the news and would not say if he believed the 37-year old, 13-time Pro Bowl player would retire rather than return next season.

“That’s for Ray to speak on,” Harbaugh said. “I admire Ray Lewis. I’ve said that many times. I think anybody that knows him feels that way. I’ll be looking forward to see what he says about that.”
