Ravens G Alex Lewis out for the season with a shoulder injury
- Baltimore Ravens second-year guard Alex Lewis will miss the 2017 season with a shoulder injury. He sustained the injury in practice and it “has not responded to treatment” according to the Ravens website, therefore requiring surgery next week.
- Lewis was expected to start at left guard in 2017 after a sub-par rookie campaign in which he started three games at left tackle and five at left guard. His overall grade of 45.6 (60th) was heavily influenced by his poor play at left tackle.
- In his eight starts, Lewis surrendered just one sack. He allowed eight total pressures at left guard while allowing 21 at left tackle. The Ravens were hoping to settle Lewis into a single position (left guard) where he could more easily improve his overall performance.
