The news this morning on cornerback Lardarius Webb is about what the Baltimore Ravens expected. The team was still waiting on further information on the severity of Ray Lewis’s triceps injury.

Webb, the team’s top cornerack, tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the Ravens’ 31-29 victory over the Dallas Cowboys and is finished for the season, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. He tore his right ACL as a rookie.

“He’s very upset,” an unnamed source told Wilson. “It’s a shame. He had worked his butt off. Now, he’s got to rehab like crazy to get back for next year. He’ll work hard and get it done, but it’s not what he wants. He wants to be out there on the field with his teammates.”

Lewis hurt his triceps, an injury that could be season-ending and, perhaps, career-ending, given that he has said he would quit when his eldest son started playing in college. Lewis was to undergo an MRI today to determine the severity of his injury. Lewis “responded well to treatment [Sunday night],” a source told Wilson. “We’ll know [Monday]. It’s wait and see.’
