The Baltimore Ravens are heading into a game this Sunday which has playoff implications against divisional opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals. Coming off a disappointing loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Bengals must find a way to get back into the win column this week but will have to do so without one of their key players, LB Ray Lewis.
The Carroll County Times reports this evening that the Baltimore Ravens will be without LB Ray Lewis for at least one game, possibly more, due to a toe injury. The paper reports that Ray Lewis visited a specialist in South Florida on Thursday.
Lewis has started 57 straight games for the Ravens and will miss his first game since the 2007 season.
As the Ravens learned that they will be without the services of one player, another player will finally find his way on to the field for Baltimore this week. WR Lee Evans is scheduled to return after missing seven weeks due to injury. Evans has been nursing a left ankle injury.
Evans, a former first-round pick, was acquired by the Baltimore Ravens through a trade with the Buffalo Bills at the start of the 2011 NFL regular season.
