1/30/2007 - NFL Ray Lewis Baltimore Ravens + more

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis
withdrew from the Pro Bowl because of a hand injury he sustained in
a playoff loss to Indianapolis.

Lewis' place on the AFC roster will be filled by teammate Bart Scott, who was an alternate and will be making his first appearance
in the game in Honolulu.

Lewis was a first alternate who replaced injured linebacker Al
Wilson of the Denver Broncos. He led the Ravens' top-ranked defense
with 164 tackles, the ninth time in his 11-year career he finished
as Baltimore's leading tackler. He also had five sacks and two
interceptions.

Scott finished with 130 tackles, second to Lewis, and had 9½
sacks and two interceptions.

The Ravens will have six players at the Pro Bowl. Safety
Ed Reed, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and outside linebacker
Adalius Thomas were picked to be starters. Linebacker Terrell Suggs
and cornerback Chris McAlister will head to Hawaii as reserves.
