The Ravens moved linebacker Ray Lewis from short-term injured reserve to their 53-man roster on Wednesday, reports the NFL's Gregg Rosenthal. Lewis tore his triceps in Week 6 against the Cowboys; he began practicing three weeks ago.

Wide receiver LaQuan Williams was placed on injured reserve to make room for the 17-year veteran in what was largely a "procedural move." Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Lewis would not be on the field for the team's final regular season game against the Bengals but would return for the playoffs.

"We will not look at him again for this week," Harbaugh told reporters. "It's an injury that is a 12- to 16-week injury. So, if you do the math going back, we thought there was a chance. He is progressing really well. I'm not saying he couldn't have played the last couple of weeks, but it would've been risky to re-injure it. The fact that there was some patience on Ray's part and our part, it turned out well."
The Ravens (10-5) have already clinched the AFC North and will host either the Bengals or the Colts in the Wild Card round on Jan. 5 or Jan. 6.
