Ray Lewis, A.J. Green both out

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will miss Sunday's game against the Bengals and possibly more with a toe injury, according to The Carroll County Times.

According to report that Lewis visited a specialist in South Florida to get another opinion after suffering a toe injury at Seattle . Lewis, a 12-time Pro Bowl selection, hasn't practiced this week.

When Lewis will return is unclear . There's only six weeks remaining in the regular season after this weekend's games.

Lewis is considered one of the toughest players in the NFL, starting 57 consecutive games. The last time he sat out a game was the end of the 2007 season.

The Baltimore Ravens (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Baltimore_Ravens_Nfl_Jerseys--pc-492-1) likely will replace Lewis with Dannell Ellerbe, who has started four games in his three-year NFL (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/NFL_Jerseys--pc-482-1) career.

The Bengals will be without rookie wide receiver A.J. Green, who was inactive after hyperextending his right knee last weekend making a touchdown catch against Pittsburgh. Andre Caldwell is expected to start in his place.

Cincinnati Bengals (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Cincinnati_Bengals_NFL_Jerseys--pc-500-1)' inactives included safety Robert Sands, linebacker Dontay Moch, tackle Anthony Collins and tight end Donald Lee.

Red Wings hang on for 4-2 win over Ducks

Henrik Zetterberg, Johan Franzen and Brad Stuart staked Detroit to a three-goal lead, and the Red Wings held on for a 4-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night,November 20.

The Detroit Red Wings (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Detroit_Red_Wings_NHL_Jerseys--pc-532-1)picked up where they left off as far as their offense was concerned.

Henrik Zetterberg found the net just 1:26 into the first period after Anaheim Ducks (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/NHL_Jerseys--pc-483-1)' Brandon McMillan blocked a long shot by Jiri Hudler . After McMillan had some difficulty controlling the puck, Zetterberg grabbed the puck and flipped a short backhander past Jonas Hiller for the score putting the Red Wings up 1-0.

Stuart had two goals, including an empty-netter he banked in off the right boards from the Detroit zone with 48 seconds to play, and Pavel Datsyuk had two assists after breaking out of a 12-game goal drought with a pair against the Los Angeles Kings (http://www.urbestjerseys.com/Los_Angeles_Kings_NHL_Jerseys--pc-534-1) in a 4-1 win on Saturday.

Just 14 seconds into the second period, Johan Franzen made it 2-0 after Pavel Datsyuk intercepted a pass from Anaheim's Cam Fowler and quickly sent it to Franzen, who released a wrist shot to the stick side of the goal for the score.

The Detroit Red Wings return on home ice this Wednesday and hope to douse the Calgary Flames at the Joe Louis Arena.
