Ray Lewis Has “Real Good Chance” To Return This Week

Tuesday November 29th, 2011

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis has a “real good chance” to play this Sunday against Cleveland, according to BaltimoreRavens.com.

“Ray is probably the guy that’s the furthest away [from returning], if you’re looking at all the guys,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday. “But then again, you never know. Ray has a sprained toe, a turf toe kind of thing, so those are a little more unpredictable. I’m hopeful. I’ve used that word before. I think he’s got a real good chance.  We’ll just have to see how it goes.”

Lewis, 36, has missed the last two games with a toe injury - his first missed start since 2007 - but last week it was reported that Lewis is expected to play again this season. Lewis has 68 total tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception this year. The 12-time Pro Bowler has played in 14 or more games for five consecutive seasons.
