It may be no coincidence that as 3rd-year defensive end Arthur Jones seems to be blossoming as an impact player on the Ravens 3-man line, Baltimore's run defense has gotten better, they are generating more pass rush... and overall team performance has improved.
People always ask me lately---"are the Ravens playing better defense because they are without Ray Lewis [triceps] ?.."
I tell them no. The difference is Arthur Jones is playing the best defensive end of his life right now. That, plus Terrell Suggs is getting faster and stronger at OLB...and LB Paul Kruger is getting better as the season goes on, too.
Having Ray Lewis back in time for the 2012 playoffs will only end up making something that is now good even better.
Arthur Jones, DE, 6-3, 315, age 26, 3rd year out of Syracuse, drafted 5th round of the 2010 Draft...Jones had 5 tackles and 2 sacks against the Chargers in the win at San Diego last Sunday.

Baltimore Ravnes head coach John Harbaugh told Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports that his players almost turned on him before their bye week.
Harbaugh told his players that they would be practicing in pads after getting blown out and embarrassed by the Houston Texans. It didn’t go over well and things almost got really ugly.
Practicing in pads did not go over well with some of...
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is a warrior and we all know that.
So its not surprising that what would have been a season-ending injury for most players might just be a setback for Lewis.

NFL coaches face daily challenges the public never sees. For Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, one of his most pivotal moments of the season came in a closed-door team meeting way back on Halloween as the team was returning from a bye, fresh off their 43-13 pasting at the hands of the Houston Texans. Harbaugh told the team they were practicing in full pads and the players nearly...
Ray Rice has been my favorite running back in the NFL for a long time now. This is one of the reasons. The man is a strait up beast and has determination on every run. Never seems like the guy takes a play off. The Ravens were in a dog fight yesterday with the San Diego Chargers. Rice grabbed this screen pass in the video below and took it 29 yards for a 1st down. Oh...
Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis might not return to practice this week even though he's expected back soon from a torn right triceps. Lewis underwent surgery and is on injured reserve-designated to return. He's eligible to start practicing Thursday and can't play in a game until Dec. 16 against the Denver Broncos. "Ray Lewis is here, he's rehabbing,...
The Baltimore Ravens were hoping former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Ray Lewis could return to practice this week after undergoing surgery last month to repair a torn right triceps tendon. The middle linebacker has been diligently rehabilitating, using a hyperbaric chamber and platelet-rich therapy to accelerate the healing process. On the injured reserve/designated to return...
The Baltimore Ravens started their practice preparations on Wednesday as they get set to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
The Wednesday injury report for the Ravens shows that cornerback Jimmy Smith (abdomen) remains sidelined and has already been ruled out for the game as expected.
Not practicing for the Ravens on Wednesday were tight end Ed Dickson (knee), linebacker Dannell...
The Baltimore Ravens may be the most suspect 9-2 football team in the history of the NFL. Most teams will take that claim, but reports are circulating that the heart and soul of Baltimore’s shabby defense could be returning sooner than expected.
Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver is reporting that linebacker Ray Lewis could return from his torn triceps injury as early as Week 15...
The Chargers had the Ravens beat. Until they didn’t. San Diego led 13-10 and had Baltimore down to what may have been its last play. Not only was it fourth down with 1:59 left in the game, but the Ravens also needed 29 yards to get a first down. Impossible, right? Not if Ray Rice is on the field. From his own 37-yard line, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took the shotgun snap and...

When the Denver Broncos (8-3) face the Baltimore Ravens (9-2) in Week 15, Ray Lewis could be out on the field at middle linebacker for the Ravens.
Lewis tore his triceps in October, but has been recovering well, according to ESPN:
“Coach John Harbaugh now thinks Lewis will play in the regular season. “That’s a best...
It's been a pretty good year for Ravens players recovering from serious injuries. First Terrell Suggs gets back on the field far sooner than expected, and now it appears linebacker Ray Lewis could return before the end of this season as well.
Lewis, who tore his triceps in October, was expected to miss the remainder of the season despite being placed on the designated-to-return...
While Ray Rice continued to bask in the glow of his 29-yard, catch-and-run on fourth-and-29 against the San Diego Chargers, quarterback Joe Flacco admitted that he didnt do any reflecting on the play and he didnt plan to.
We got away with one and Ill be glad. I could have looked like a big-time idiot if we dont get that play, Flacco said. I kind of went out on a limb...
