Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb suffered potentially season-ending injuries during the Ravens' win over the Cowboys on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Baltimore Ravens defense suffered key injuries to linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb in Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Ravens fear that Lewis suffered a tear in his triceps when he was forced to leave the game in the fourth quarter. Webb tore his ACL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Lewis will undergo an MRI on Monday morning to determine the extent of his injury, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports. The Ravens don't believe Lewis suffered a complete tear, but it may have been deep enough to shelve the linebacker for the season.

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens' win could prove to be very, very costly for the defense. Webb is arguably the team's best cornerback, and it goes without saying that Lewis is massively important to the front seven and team as a whole.

Lewis has been a valuable IDP fantasy option throughout his career. He had 14 tackles before leaving Sunday's game, giving him 50 total for the season. As a Team D/ST option, the Ravens obviously take a major hit. Next week's game against the Houston Texans could be a struggle.
