Injured Ray Lewis, Lardarius Webb Out For The Season

BALTIMORE (WJZ)— It was a costly win for the Baltimore Ravens. The team took down the Dallas Cowboys at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, but not before losing two of its best defensive players.

Jessica Kartalija has more on what fans are saying about it.

Ravens win over the Cowboys, but it’s a major loss to the team.

Cornerback Lardarius Webb ended his 2012 season with a torn ACL that likely means surgery.

Dr. Harrison Youmans is with the department of sports medicine at Union Memorial Hospital.

“If you’ve got an ACL injury, especially with a high level athlete or anybody who is going to be athletic, most of those will get surgically reconstructed,” Youmans said.

And a complete triceps tear has sidelined linebacker Ray Lewis.

“The MRI will show whether there is swelling at the bone at the attachment of these ligaments or whether these ligaments are torn,” Youmans explained. “You can have complete tears or partial tears and in certain cases, that can determine how you treat it.”

The WJZ Fan Cam asks, “Can the Ravens survive the loss of these players?”
