    Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason



    Per Aaron Wilson.

    OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis has been shut down for the remainder of the preseason in order to recuperate from a nagging hip injury.

    Instead of practicing and playing in games, the former NFL Offensive Player of the Year will spend his time rehabbing an injury that forced him on the physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp.
    Lewis, who strained his left hip flexor running sprints in late July, played in the first two preseason games and rushed for a combined 61 yards on 15 carries.

    However, the former Pro Bowl runner continued to complain about recurring soreness in his hip and quadriceps. Now, he'll be sidelined until the practice week heading into the Ravens' Sept. 10 season opener at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


    The whole story should appear on PF24x7 soon.

    Oh wow. Thank goodness for Musa Smith, Mike Anderson, and even P.J. Daniels who after loking at the game, again, today ran very well. I hope this problem isn't serious. Considering that he has had this discomfort, he has run very well. Imagine what Jamal will do once his hip is fine.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Does anyone else think this is to get a better look at Musa as well?

    This means more snaps with the first team for Musa.

    If Musa continues to amaze this preseason and Jamal's hip is still iffy, could Musa be the starter? Or do you guys think that MA would be the default back?

    Very interesting times indeed.

    Could Jamal go on PUP or even the IR? This will be interesting two weeks ahead.

    Yeah, let's trade Musa or MA....

    Wait, this is why we didn'tm you never know. He was lookign good so far, so hopefeully this is extremely precautionary, and not a sign we wasted $6m dollars($2.7 agaisnt the cap).

    MA is prob. cheering. It will be great to see what Musa can do. I like what I've seen from Jamal, he is hitting the hole without dancing!

    What do you think of this? If Musa turns out to be the real thing and has a stellar season, could we trade Jamal, get a starter out of it and keep Anderson?

    I hope Jamal is OK! He had 61 yards, on 15 carries? Double that to his desired 30 carries a game, and we have the Jamal of old.
    As for Musa, it will be interesting to see if he can repeat his success against a starting defense. I still want to see if MA can hold onto the 2nd string RB position. Not that he's lost it yet, but if he keeps it up, he will. Just my 2 cents

    I am not too concerned about Jamal missing the rest of the preseason. Hell Tomlinson hasn't been playing all preseason, if I am not mistaken.

    I doubt this has anything to do with wanting to see Musa Smith play more. The RAVENS already know what Musa Smith can do. That's why they drafted him in the 3rd round three years ago.

    I don't remember the exact numbet nut someone mentioned on TV that LT has had under a "dozen or so" total preseason carries in his CAREER.

    Furthermore Jamal already proved healthier then last year and thus further preseason carries cold only do harm.

    Despite how well Musa has played, I'd like to see the Ravens really give Mike Anderson a lot of work as the feature back. I'm confident the guy is a solid running back despite all of his experience coming in Denver's infamous chop blocking one cut system. He just needs the live reps to adjust to our system. Musa already knows our system and I'd hate to see him get over worked and end up injured again.
