After suffering a torn triceps injury last weekend against the Dallas Cowboys, it was unsure whether Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis would ever play another a snap in the NFL. The 37 year old Lewis is nearing the end of his career despite still playing at such a high level. While Lewis has yet to make an official announcement, teammate Haloti Ngata says Lewis told him he will be back.
The pair had a conversation earlier this week and Ngata talked to NFL Network’s Melissa Stark about what was said between the two.
“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.’“
Whether that means Lewis will be back next season or hopes to return this season is unclear. Baltimore left the door open for a return this season by placing Lewis on the injured reserve, designated for return list.
While head coach John Harbaugh said it would be a long shot that Lewis returns this season, Ngata feels there is a possibility he will return this year.
“I don’t know what other guys believe, but I definitely believe he will be back,” said Ngata.
“Knowing the work ethic he has, he is going to work his butt off to get back on the field with us.”

When the schedule was released way back in April, I, along with quite a few others, circled this game on the schedule as a tough one for the Ravens. That was assuming good health for Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata among others. Now, this game could be a blowout.
Fortunately for the Ravens, I don’t think they will get blown out. Joe Flacco and the offense play...

With Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb out for the season, the Ravens may be getting desperate on defense.
NFL.com is reporting that Terrell Suggs will play on Sunday against the Texans after being activated from the physically unable to perform list.
Suggs tore his right achilles tendon in May. Typical recovery time for a similar injury can be up to 11 months.
Even though there are a fewer amount of games this week, with six teams on a bye week including the only undefeated team left in the NFL in the Atlanta Falcons, there are still some quality matchups.

With ten games remaining, have the 3-3 Patriots played themselves out of a bye-week, or do they still have a real chance at catching the 5-1 Ravens or Texans for one of the AFC's top two spots?
