SCOTT NAMED TO FIRST PRO BOWL

Bart-Scott-Pitt
SCOTT NAMED TO HIS 1st PRO BOWL
 
 
Dr. Leigh Ann Curl, chief orthopedic surgeon for the Baltimore Ravens, has recommended that Ray Lewis not play in this year’s Pro Bowl (2/11) because of a hand injury Ray suffered in the Divisional Playoff Game against the Colts.
 
With Lewis now out of the NFL’s All-Star game, Bart Scott, who finished just behind Ray in the voting, becomes a Pro Bowler for the 1st time. Scott finished 2nd on the No. 1-ranked defense in the NFL with a career-high 135 tackles. He also added a career-high 9.5 sacks, 9 PD, 2 INTs and 1 FF. Scott becomes the 6th Baltimore defensive player (Chris McAlister, Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs, Adalius Thomas and Lewis – who Scott replaced) to earn a spot in the annual All-Star game. Jonathan Ogden was the lone Ravens’ offensive player selected to the Pro Bowl, marking his 10th-consecutive All-Star invite.
 
“It’s a tremendous honor to be chosen to play amongst your peers,” said Scott. “I have watched the Pro Bowl on TV since I was a kid, and to think that I am going to be one of the players kids can look up to as a role model makes me proud. I take pride in representing the Ravens’ organization and playing the game the way it is supposed to be played. My whole life, it seems like I have slipped in through the back door. With the faith the organization has shown in me, I can’t think of a better way to repay them than playing alongside the best this game has to offer.”
