Ray Lewis Expected to Play Against Broncos

Pro Bowl middle linebacker, Ray Lewis, who has been sidelined for the last seven games due to a torn right triceps he suffered against the Cowboys in Week 6, is expected to play against the Denver Broncos in Sunday’s game, according to Raven’s coach, John Harbaugh. Ray Lewis, a popular motivational speaker at PFP Sports and Celebrity Talent Agency, is hopeful he will be back in action against Denver after suffering a torn triceps which sidelined him for 7 weeks.

An injury like a torn triceps usually requires 4-6 months recovery time, but Lewis was practicing on the field last Wednesday, less than two months after receiving the injury.

No one was more optimistic than Raven’s coach, John Harbaugh, when asked if there was a chance Lewis would play against Denver.

“There is a chance, yes,” Harbaugh said.

“He’s making good progress, and we’ll just have to see how he practices this week,” Harbaugh said. “Going into Wednesday, we’ll know a lot more because he is going to push it a little bit over the next two days. (We’re) looking forward to seeing how that plays out.”

Lewis, however, is not the only Raven’s player to be plagued by injuries. Marshal Yanda suffered a sprained right ankle during last Sunday’s loss to the Redskins and may be out for Sunday’s game. He is awaiting results from an MRI.

The Capital Gazette reports:

Middle linebacker Jameel McClain suffered what looked to be a potentially serious neck injury during the third quarter of Sunday’s loss, but Harbaugh said after the game that X-rays on McClain’s neck were negative.

“Jameel McClain is going to be OK,” Harbaugh said Monday. “He’s got to get some testing done, but he should be OK. That’s standard procedure.”

Running back Ray Rice (hip contusion) and Bernard Pierce (lower back strain) also suffered injuries Sunday, as did defensive linemen Arthur Jones (shoulder bruise) and Pernell McPhee (groin), but all four ailments are considered minor.

Fullback Vonta Leach sustained a sprained ankle that Harbaugh said will be monitored throughout the week.

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (torn biceps) was sidelined Sunday, but Harbaugh said Monday there’s a “good chance” Suggs will be available when the Ravens host to the Broncos this weekend.
