Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is hoping to end his career on a Super Bowl high. Teammate Ed Reed is returning next season regardless. "I'll be playing next year," Reed told reporters Thursday before Baltimore's practice for the Feb. 3 Super Bowl. When Lewis announced his intention to retire after the season, he called it a "last ride." The 34-year-old Reed plans to take more journeys. "No, it's not my last ride," he said. "I just bought a bike." Reed has started every game since 2010, when he missed Baltimore's first six games with a hip injury. He has been named to nine Pro Bowls. He's made 58 tackles and intercepted four passes this season.

Brady should be fine.
