The Baltimore Ravens, one of the frontrunning contenders in the AFC, improved to 5-1 with their 31-29 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
But that victory may have come at a huge cost for the Ravens. Linebacker Ray Lewis, the heart and soul of the team, suffered a torn triceps muscle, which could be season-ending, says Jay Glazer of FoxSports.
Also, cornerback Lardarius Webb, one of the Ravens stars in the secondary, injured his knee, and the fear is that he has suffered a torn ACL, says Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Losing one or both of those players for the season could severely hamper a Ravens team that has long held defense as its hallmark. Both players will have full evaluations on Monday.
