NFL veteran Ray Lewis suffered a torn triceps Sunday that put him on the Baltimore Ravens' injured reserve list leaving fans wondering if he would ever return.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh gave fans some hope when he announced Lewis would be placed on injured reserve with the "designated to return" tag.
"I have no idea, we have no idea, whether that timeframe has anything to do with the injury," Harbaugh said via NFL.com. "Obviously, it's a very serious injury. But there's an opportunity, and we're going to keep the door open, and we'll just see where that goes, going forward. We really don't know any more than that. He will have surgery today."
All-pro defensive lineman Haloti Ngata believes Lewis will be back, saying just that:  "I believe and he believes he will be back, just knowing him, talking to him a day ago, (he was saying) 'I'll be back, don't worry.' "
"I don't know what other guys believe, but I definitely believe he will be back," Ngata said to NFL Networks's Melissa Stark via USA Today.
"Knowing the work ethic he has, he is going to work his butt off to get back on the field with us."
