Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will be out for Sunday's key AFC North game against the Cincinnati Bengals, says Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.
Lewis has not practiced all week because of a toe injury, and got a second opinion from a specialist in Florida that confirmed the extent of the injury. Lewis, 36, is likely to miss more than just this week's game against the Bengals.
The timing of losing the team's emotional leader is especially bad for the Ravens, who are tied with the Bengals at 6-3 a half game behind the idle Pittsburgh Steelers. Lewis has not missed a game since 2007.
