Perennial NFL Pro Bowler Ray Lewis, the heart and soul of the Baltimore Ravens, is out for the rest of the season with a torn triceps. The 37 year-old linebacker suffered the injury in a victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. ESPN is reporting that this injury could end the career of the Super Bowl XXXV champion, who has had 227 straight starts.
Although he’s not on the cover of EA Sports Madden NFL 13 (that honor went to Calvin Johnson, who has not been injured), Lewis did work closely with Electronic Arts in a series of funny TV commercials with actor Paul Rudd) and other promotional videos, like the E3 video shown below. Does that make Lewis the first two-time victim of the Madden Curse?
