In a big blow to the Ravens defense, the Carroll County Times is reporting that linebacker Ray Lewis will miss Sunday’s game vs. Cincinnati with a toe injury.

Quoth the Ravens
But that’s not all. According to the paper, Lewis might miss more than Sunday’s game as he tries to heal. The last time Lewis didn’t start a contest? That was 57 games ago in 2007.

Lewis reportedly visited a South Florida specialist this week to get a second opinion on the toe he injured during the Seahawks game, and apparently, the news wasn’t good. Unless you’re a Bengals fan, I suppose.

Without Lewis in the middle of the defense, linebacker Jameel McClain, who normally plays on the inside, could shift to middle linebacker or the Ravens could start Dannell Ellerbe in Lewis’ place.

UPDATED (2:25 p.m. ET): The team has listed Lewis as questionable, and he most likely will be a gametime decision.

Well Black & Gold Posse....  Nothing like astute, intelligent commentary to spark the old gray matter.  I thought Id just reply to your little "missive" on Mr. Lewis.   As a longtime Ravens fan, I love the guy...AS A PLAYER.  He's a definitive first ballot Hall of Famer & may be the best defensive player ever to take the field....including the likes of Lambert, Greene, Greenwood, Hamm, Woodson, etal.  There's no disputing that....dont even try.  While I will agree with you that his past may be a tad "checkered" (particularly the details & uncertainty behind the entire Atlanta incident), who among us is not entitled to redemption & who among us is perfect?  I will not even attempt to level the playing field by badmouthing Roethlisberger, or delve into the personal lives or habits of any former Steelers like Kordell Stewart or J. Gilliam.  That would be lowering me to your level...  And besides, I LIKE Roethlisberger!  He's a great QB that I wish we had here....tough, gritty, physical skills & a mind for the game. 

What one needs to remember is that for all their physical size, fame, money & bigger than life persona's, these are very YOUNG men.  Lewis may not be so young anymore, but the majority of athletes who fall under our media miscroscope are in fact only several years out of college.....many without the honed judgment, maturity or self control of older men.  Additionally, many of them are wealthy beyond their dreams, idolized & worshiped by their peers, & in many cases raised without the support, guidance & discipline a young man needs.  That doesnt legitimize murder, rape, dog fighting or any of a myriad of other offenses...but it surely doesnt eliminate the potential for regret, atonement, or efforting to change one's life for the better either.

Whether Ray Lewis was in fact a "scoundrel" or not is uncertain, as is the case with Roethlisberger.  Regardless, they are both the envy & heroes of many for thier on-field deeds.  And while I realize that within the confines of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh & State College are "worlds apart", I would allege that the fine folks of Pa. should likely be careful pointing fingers.  When sporting ICONS & GODS the like of Joe Pa are tarnished or implicated in trangressions the likes of those recently brought to light it makes Ray Lewis & Ben Roethlisberger look like choir boys.

Ben was never charged beause he raped drunk college chicks.

He took advantage of drunk whores who have no credability!
So which is it? You can't be both a whore and get raped. That makes no sense. I have credibile information that states the girl actually pissed herself while they started fooling around then Ben dipped. Wouldn't you? So she cried rape. And needless to say there was no evidence.

Unlike the murder that Ray Lewis got away with.

Clue me in to how his past has anything with him being out Sunday!

I get the whole rivalry banter, but come on, even Steeler fans should know enough to have some respect for Ray Lewis, at least as a football player.  If you don't like the guy personally, fine.  But the guy is a first ballot hall of famer who plays the game like it should be played.

Black and Gold.
Comeon, you dont have to like Ray but he is a hell of a football player and since you were not there in Atlanta and the DA dropped it
maybe you should as well.

Pretty similar to the Big Ben thing in alot of ways, so if its dropped, it's dropped. 

Stuff 10 years ago who gives a crap?

Ravens fans... your defense of Ray Lewis sickens me. The guy is a scumbag. He took the ACT like 12 times to get into the U. The U was  out fo control when he was there and is the worst school in the college for producing terrible people. He was at the scene in Atlanta, and no one knows the truth, but the one thing is... Atlanta PD stopped pursuing the case after Ray plead down. They did  not drop the charges, he plead down. Why do people plead down? Ray is now a man of GOD - why do people become men of GOD? Usually after they do something they shouldn't do. There are so many reasons Lewis scum, and why can't you see them? He is a hot dog showboat who is me first, team second. I see youth wearing his jersey and it makes want to puke. The guy should not be in the NFL. He should not be on promo's or commercials and he should be the biggest villain in pro sports. Everywhere outside of Baltimore and ESPN, he is regarded as scumbag. Your blindness to this fact is saddening, puzzling and worrysome. You root for a guy like this and will say and do anything to defend him. You should be ashamed of youself, but you won't - you will rail on Steeler fans. We laugh at your railing, since we have 6 rings to your puny one - which was the worst team ever to win a Super Bowl.

Get better Way Way, hope yer lil piggy heals so you do your little way way dance before the games and act like the little jerk you are. Get well way way. Real men can play with a sore piggy, but not way-way.  What a chump.
