NFL Injury Report:
Just when NFL offenses thought it was safe.
Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis may not be done for the 2012 season after all.
Despite suffering a torn triceps against the Cowboys last Sunday, Lewis has been placed on injured reserve with the 'designation to return' tag. It means that he's eligible to start practicing with the team after six weeks and can then play after eight weeks, which has him slated for a return to action at home to the Broncos in Week 15, a matchup that could very well have huge playoff implications; Lewis arguably couldn't have written it better himself.
Much, though, needs to fall in his favour between now and then as coach John Harbaugh initially stated on Monday that Lewis would miss the rest of the season. Per the Associated Press via ESPN.com, Harbaugh described the injury as a "full tear" but went on to say that "we're going to keep the door open."
In all honesty, the odds on Lewis facing Peyton Manning across the line of scrimmage on December 16 are remote, but placing him with the aforementioned 'return' tag opens up the possibilty that, even if Lewis isn't on the field against the Broncos, he might yet make it back for the playoffs.
Should that happen, he'll find himself in good company as Terrell Suggs returned to practice on Wednesday following an Achilles injury suffered during the offseason. However, he won't return immediately and will be brought along slowly.
Lewis had led the Ravens in tackles this season and the undoubted (surely first ballot) future Hall of Famer is the heartbeat of the Ravens defense. How they cope with his loss, and that of cornerback Lardarius Webb, will determine whether Lewis has even a sniff of the playoffs come late December.
Jameel McClain will move inside to replace Lewis. That's big shoes to fill and an even bigger heart.

So as expected yesterday, the Baltimore Ravens announced that Ray Lewis would be shutting it down for the rest of the season. Could this be the last we’ve seen of Ray Lewis?

He’s a good linebacker, don’t get me wrong...
