DENVER (AP) -- Denver Mayor Michael Hancock is paying a high price after losing a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake that required him to perform linebacker Ray Lewis' famous pre-game dance if the Denver Broncos lost to the Ravens.

The mayor's spokeswoman, Amber Miller, says Hancock suffered an unspecified injury during "pre-game" warm-ups on Monday.

Miller says Hancock still plans to fulfill his end of the wager. She says Hancock will release an update when one becomes available.

Had the Broncos prevailed, Rawlings-Blake said the Washington Monument would be lit in blue and orange Broncos colors.

On Saturday, the top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a 38-35 home loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
