According to the Baltimore Sun, there’s a chance Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will play this coming Sunday against the Giants.
The Ravens will again wait until Saturday afternoon to make a decision on Ray Lewis, but early indications are that the inside linebacker will attempt to play Sunday against the New York Giants.
Lewis, who is trying to come back from a torn triceps that he sustained in the Ravens’ Week 6 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, practiced for the third straight week and he wants to return. The Ravens also possess the roster flexibility to accommodate him on the 53-man roster with Jameel McClain (neck) expected to be moved to injured reserve. The Ravens have declared McClain out for the season.
The Ravens will have to make a final decision on whether to activate Lewis from injured reserve with a designation to return by 4 p.m. Saturday. Team sources said they expect Lewis to try to play; however, they cautioned the decision will ultimately be up to Lewis and the team’s medical and coaching staff.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh didn’t tip his hand, saying only that Lewis is “coming along.”
Even if Lewis is activated for Sunday’s game, he’ll have plenty of rust to shake and won’t make a big difference on one of the worst defenses in the NFL.
