Of All Things, Was it Marshawn Lynch’s Juke That Caused Ray Lewis’ Toe Injury?
Of all possible ways for Ray Lewis, one of the most ferocious linebackers in NFL history, to get injured, it may have been a juke from Marshawn Lynch that brought him down.
Lynch is one of the slowest, least impressive running backs in the NFL. He has very few moves, and he is the king of the three-yard run. Known more for his power than his ability to move, it was a shock to see him absolutely fake out Ray Lewis on a pass catch late in the game.
The play happened in the final few minutes of the game, and it was on an eight-yard reception from Tarvaris Jackson. Lewis was completely faked out by Lynch’s move to the inside, and his ankle collapsed. Lynch may have literally broken Ray Lewis’ toe on the play.
Lewis, who has not missed a game since the 2007 season, is out for Sunday’s game and reportedly could miss up to a month. All because of Marshawn Lynch’s smooth moves. Who could have ever guessed it?
