Report: Ray Lewis will miss Sunday’s game, maybe more


We interrupt the ongoing coverage of the most thrilling 17-13 game in recent memory to look ahead to a fairly significant game that will be played on Sunday.

Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reports that Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will miss Sunday’s game against the Bengals with a toe injury that has caused him to miss practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Per the report, Lewis was evaluated by a doctor in South Florida, who confirmed the team’s assessment of the damage.  He could miss additional games.

The 36-year-old future Hall of Famer hasn’t missed a game since December 2007.

  2. raqaiw says: Nov 18, 2011 1:01 AM

    Not good.

  3. Andre's Johnson says: Nov 18, 2011 1:01 AM

    Ray Lewis scares me.

    Karma for head-hunting on Hines Ward but avoiding the penalty.

  5. rarson says: Nov 18, 2011 1:04 AM

    That sucks.

    Marshawn broke his toe!

  7. phillychzstk2012 says: Nov 18, 2011 1:07 AM

    Thank goodness. First a Tebow win, then a Ray Lewis injury. There truly is a god!

  9. dhawk12 says: Nov 18, 2011 1:07 AM

    Toe? I thought he broke both his ankles on that run…

  10. sumoson says: Nov 18, 2011 1:11 AM

    Didnt he kill somebody ?

  11. vincentbojackson says: Nov 18, 2011 1:14 AM

    Who will jump on the pile after each Raven’s tackle on Sunday?
    Seriously, everyone outside Baltimore knows the guy is more cheerleader than player at this point in his career. He’s the best “third guy in” on gang tackles in the league.

  12. seanx40 says: Nov 18, 2011 1:23 AM

    sumoson, he may not have actually killed anyone. Just was an accessory. And impeded the police investigation.

  13. taco87 says: Nov 18, 2011 1:25 AM

    Damn ray did miss but to be fair his teammate to the right should have got lynch he went to his side ray had the inside covered.

  14. theysone says: Nov 18, 2011 1:43 AM

    Must’ve dropped his stabbing knife on his foot.

  15. whichiwhichwawa says: Nov 18, 2011 2:13 AM

    I’d like to see TeBum stare down at Ray Lewis than try to run his highschool football plays!

  16. mrcosio says: Nov 18, 2011 2:29 AM

    An NFL without Ray Lewis will depress me and I’m not a Ravens fan

  17. hedleykow says: Nov 18, 2011 2:40 AM

    Rex Ryan read this news report twice: once when he thought he read the word toe, and a second time to make damn sure.

  18. ihateannouncers says: Nov 18, 2011 2:44 AM

    Certainly looks like he could have easily hurt his ankle or knee. Hey Ray, the Seahawks called and asked if you could pick your jockstrap up, you left it on the 44 yard line. That was one sick move by Lynch.

    Where all the Pigons fans now talking about how the Steelers players are soft ? Com’on Ben played with broken toes ect . This just goes to show how soft the pigons are .

  21. baltimorons says: Nov 18, 2011 6:33 AM

    A toe injury could end a hall of fame career. Just ask Jack Lambert.
    …and yes he did kill someone, but the commish still loves him.

  22. steelerssmack4u says: Nov 18, 2011 6:47 AM

    Ray Lewis has been MIA the last 2 years. It will be nice watching the pre-game shows without Rays over hyped antics. Soon as the kickoffs is over, Ray’s pre-game speech is useless, AKA the Ravens Seahawk loss.
    Like Hindes Ward with the Steelers, time for Ray to retire. Ray for years can only make tackles between the hash marks.

  23. djstat says: Nov 18, 2011 6:48 AM

    Redrifle you are a disgrace of a human being, if you are thankful someone was injured. Rayewis never killed anyone. Had he, the prosecution would not have dropped charges. If you lived in Baltimore you would see how much he does for charity and children.

  24. dontstabmeray says: Nov 18, 2011 7:02 AM

    Did he break it running from the guy he stabbed?

  25. monsterscream says: Nov 18, 2011 7:08 AM

    We will miss 52 no doubt. Now we only have three perennial All Pro players on defense.

  26. Steeler's Will says: Nov 18, 2011 7:08 AM

    Dang that’s a long streak. Sunday’s game is a bad one to miss, but hopefully he’ll be back in time for some December ball. Ravens should still win in my oppinion.

  27. rgwhodey says: Nov 18, 2011 7:19 AM

    HGH Doesn’t strengthen bones….
    Just sayin’

  28. ravenshaterssuckdonkeydick says: Nov 18, 2011 7:26 AM

    It sure is a good thing spelling isn’t a prerequisite for being an internet jacka$$………

  29. smaynard87 says: Nov 18, 2011 7:27 AM

    Hey NJ hitman. If your going to take annoying jabs that really is pretty lame. At least dont be illiterate about it. It’s P I G E O N!!!

  30. smaynard87 says: Nov 18, 2011 7:32 AM

    Que the 16 year old “stabbing jokes”

  31. Canyonero says: Nov 18, 2011 7:40 AM

    Oh the plus side, this will help out the cameramen.

    Every Ravens game I’ve ever seen is 1) half Ray Lewis coverage, and 2) the rest of the team playing the actual game.

    Being able to focus on the game will be a relaxing change of pace.

  32. lebrack27 says: Nov 18, 2011 7:47 AM

    Who cares if he plays or not, the Bengals is gonna beat them with or without Ray Lewis. In fact, I wanted them to have all their players for the beatdown. But I guess, Marshawn Lynch tore him up last week, he can’t suit up this week, shame shame

  33. ihateduke says: Nov 18, 2011 8:17 AM

    The Lynch play ranks right up there with Allen Iverson breaking Jordan down. Oddly enough, ESPN hasn’t show many replays of it. It didn’t even make the top 10 plays. ESPN, Come on MAN!!!

  34. knowerofallthings says: Nov 18, 2011 8:21 AM

    Greatest player in the NFL

  35. steelerdynasty2010 says: Nov 18, 2011 8:24 AM

    hate to see him injured. here’s to a speedy recovery…just not before monday…go bungles!

  36. joetoronto says: Nov 18, 2011 8:27 AM

    Henry says: Nov 18, 2011 1:01 AM

    Ray who???
    Wow, Ray who.

    The Ray Lewis that EVERY team in the league wish they had. The Ray Lewis EVERY team in the league will wish they had, when he starts coaching.

    I can’t understand the complete lack of respect for not only one of the greatest LB’s to ever play the game, but one of, if not THE greatest leader this great game has ever seen.

    He is a man among boys and has a passion for the game that anyone in their right mind has to respect.

    For your sake, and I’m really mean this, not hating, I hope you’re just very young and therefor naive, along with disrespectful.

    Ray Lewis who, wow.

  37. steelersmichele says: Nov 18, 2011 8:46 AM

    djstat says: Rayewis never killed anyone. Had he, the prosecution would not have dropped charges. If you lived in Baltimore you would see how much he does for charity and children.

    Since you’re so quick to defend Ray because the prosecution dropped charges, I wonder if you’re as equally defensive of Ben because the prosecution didn’t bring any charges.

    Let’s be honest, Ray is no saint and neither is Ben–no matter how much they try and change thier image.

    (P.S. 6 children by 4 different woman. Think the man would be able to afford a condom…just saying)

  38. johnnyshore says: Nov 18, 2011 8:48 AM

    @joetoronto says “I can’t understand the complete lack of respect for not only one of the greatest LB’s to ever play the game, but one of, if not THE greatest leader this great game has ever seen.”

    I have no respect for likely murderers. Anyone who has read the reports of his alleged crime knows that Ray Lewis got away with, at a minimum, being an accomplice to murder. He is a disgusting human being, and the fact that he is good at football is meaningless considering his last 9 seasons should have been spent behind bars. I hope he snaps his neck before he retires, so we can get to see some justice.

    “Where all the Pigons fans now talking about how the Steelers players are soft ? Com’on Ben played with broken toes ect . This just goes to show how soft the pigons are ”

    What the hell is a Pigon? A pig on what?

    … Had you only said Pigeon, the joke might have made some sense. Oh well, hindsight

  40. steelerfanjo says: Nov 18, 2011 9:08 AM

    Karma Ray, you human scumbag! The greatest athlete in world sports is out due to a toe injury? Come on Ray… you are playing at home Sunday, not Atlanta. Way Way has a wittle piggy hurtin.

  41. bmorelikeme says: Nov 18, 2011 9:13 AM

    Everytime Ray’s name comes up there will inevitablely be multiple jokes about him stabbing someone or jumping on piles.

    Next time just keep those to yourselves…we already know how jealous you are not to have had the joy of watching the greatest MLB ever to play the game.

    Yeah he’s on the downside of his career and can’t get sideline to sideline anymore, but theres not a running back in the league that wants to meet Ray Lewis between the tackles.

  42. pitchblack816 says: Nov 18, 2011 9:19 AM

    Enough of the ‘stabbing/murderer’ jokes, its wasn’t even funny 16 years ago. Grow up. As for being no longer a valuable defensive player, just look at his stats. They speak for themselves (the ONLY member of the 30/40 club). Yeah, he may have gotten a bad tackle on Lynch last week but he completely de-cleated Keller last season and made a huge backfield tackle on Sproles to win the game the season before that. So don’t hate just because you can only WISH your team had one of the greatest linebackers ever. Just respect the man for what he has done on and off the football field.

  43. supashug says: Nov 18, 2011 9:46 AM

    every person that posted on this article still would want Ray on their team TODAY!

    jealousy does bring out idiots

  44. ravenution says: Nov 18, 2011 9:56 AM

    If the best anyone can do is 12 year old comebacks, then Ray’s doing pretty good. Get well. We’ll still win sunday and thursday.

    The “Pigons” are winning the superbowl.

  45. bspurloc says: Nov 18, 2011 10:04 AM

    yeah definitely karma for last weeks play….
    “hasn’t missed a game since December 2007”

    dum du dum dum

  46. samoanjungle says: Nov 18, 2011 10:14 AM

    I won’t miss the pregame hype. I think some of the Ravens players were getting tired of it.

  47. holeinone09 says: Nov 18, 2011 10:21 AM

    No excuses if Ravens lose to the Bengals. Steelers fans hear that weekly from Ravens fans.

  48. crusty14 says: Nov 18, 2011 11:00 AM

    Ray may or may not be an accomplice to murder, but he is a hell of a football player… That being said I wish he (and others like this) would tone down their religious bs. I don’t care what you believe in , so just shut the hell up! Do you really think god ( if there is one, I personally don’t think there is) really cares who wins a freaking NFL game!

  49. drfever73 says: Nov 18, 2011 12:57 PM

    No doubt about it, Lewis is/was the greatest MLB of all time. This from a Bengals fan. I want their best shot against our best shot. It’s too bad injuries are going to be factor from either side. It does even things up a bit with the Bengals losing Green and Hall. Go Bengals.

  50. steelersownyou says: Nov 18, 2011 1:26 PM

    Could you imagine big ben saying I cant play sunday my toe hurts?? Thats right you can’t cause ben never would. I think its an excuse old ray ray aint got nuttin left in the old tank. Hes smoked! Take him out to pasture!

  51. bebopa says: Nov 18, 2011 5:34 PM

    bad news, for us Ravens fans. Ray Lewis is the heart and soul of the defense and a huge part of the team. Guys like Ngota , Suggs and Ed Reed will have to fill some of the void. Go Ravens.
