11:31 AM ET 10.15 | The Ravens were hit hard with the injury bug in Week 6 as two of their defensive stars suffered what could be season-ending injuries. Ray Lewis went down with a triceps injury late in Sunday's game against the Cowboys and did not return. Depending on whether he requires surgery, the injury could cost him the rest of the season. Cornerback Lardarius Webb also went down, reportedly suffering an ACL injury that would end his season.

I would hate for this to be Ray's exit. I would much rather see him walk out because he wants to instead of having to leave because of an arm injury. That said, I can also see why he won't be coming back.

I think it's time for Lewis to retire, to be honest.
This year teams have been taking advantage of his declining skills.

He definitely will be a 1st ballot HOF'er...or at least should be.

When he came out of the game, they were looking at his elbow. Yeah, that's where the triceps attach at one end, but to me it looked more like a ligament thing than a muscle tear.

During his last injury, he was still a force to be reckoned with, even on the sidelines. This is a guy who is not ready to go gently into the night.

Ditto.

Arguably the greatest inside linebacker all-time. Close debate between him and Dick Butkus.

I don't know...that's overdoing it a bit. Lewis is in the top 10 for sure.

But better than Butkus, Huff, Nitschke, Lambert, Singletary and Lanier? I don't really think so.

It depends how you look at it. Personally I still favor Dick Butkus (slightly) but I never actually saw him play. It's mainly based on a second-hand nostalgia and his turnover-laden stat sheet.

But I will say this...

When you list guys like Sam Huff, Ray Nitchke, Willie Lanier, and yes even Dick Butkus, who all played overlapping careers, because you can't differentiate who among them was the best of his era, that alone should raise a red flag. Because throughout at least the first decade of Ray Lewis' career, there was no question who was the best inside linebacker in the league.
