Ray Lewis may be returning to the Baltimore Ravens’ lineup by week 15, according to new reports. The return would mean that Terrell Suggs isn’t the only member of the team to defy the odds by returning this season from what has been considered a season-ending injury.
Despite tearing his triceps during a game against the Cowboys, last month, Lewis may don his uniform sooner than anticipated, reports ESPN. Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo stated of the possibility:
“For the greatest player in Ravens history to be able to return from his injury and come on this championship run with us? When he was said to be down and out? Man, that’s critical mass. When he comes through that tunnel, that’s gonna be the earthquake and the tsunami.”
While Lewis was in San Diego with his team on Sunday to watch them rally to a 16-13 overtime victory, he neither confirmed nor denied any plans to return this season. He also gave his teammates a pregame speech, notes CBS Sports.
Ray Lewis’ only response to reporters questioning him on returning was, “You got eyes — what do you expect to happen? I’m here to support my team.”
Ravens coach John Harbaugh appeared to agree with the report that Ray Lewis would return to the Ravens lineup before the end of the season, though he wasn’t willing to give a specific timeline for the return. Harbaugh stated:
“We’ll have to test it, to see if it holds up. We really don’t know where it’s at right now. Ray’s been in rehab. He hasn’t been here from a football standpoint. Talking to Ray, everything seems to be going well. There haven’t been any setbacks. So it’s a possibility.”
Do you think that Ray Lewis will be returning to the Ravens’ lineup before the end of the season?
