R.Lewis to miss ProBowl, Ravens up ticket prices

OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will not play in this month's Pro Bowl because of a twice-injured wrist.<br><br> The 2003 NFL Defensive Player of the Year broke his wrist in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts and was held out of the Ravens' season finale against the Miami Dolphins after hurting it again the previous week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Lewis will not require surgery and is expected to be available for off-season minicamps. He will be replaced by New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi.
In nine seasons, Lewis has been selected to seven Pro Bowls.

Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister will also miss the game after undergoing toe surgery after the season.

That leaves offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, linebacker Terrell Suggs and safety Ed Reed, the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, as the remaining Ravens set to play in the Feb. 13 all-star game in Hawaii. This is Suggs' first Pro Bowl appearance.

NOTE: The Ravens officially announced that average ticket price will go up to $66.27 for the 2005 season, an increase from last season's price of $56.72 as the team raised ticket prices for the first time in two years.

The price will remain the same for the 2006 season and ranks the Ravens between 10th and 16th in the NFL. Last season, the Ravens ranked 16th.

Tickets prices will vary between $35 and $90, not including suite and club-level seating. Last fall, the Ravens created a waiting list for season tickets because of increased demand.
