Ray Lewis made a surprise visit to the Baltimore Ravens facility on Friday, according to ESPN, and still eyes for a comeback this season after tearing his triceps earlier in the season.
Lewis says he will return, but we’re not sure if it’s exactly a comeback for this season, as it could mean a return for 2013 instead as well.
Lewis is currently on injured reserve with designation to return, which allows him to be eligible to play come Dec. 12. Lewis met with his teammates in the locker room and even hugged head coach John Harbaugh.
“It’s truly great to be back with my teammates,” Lewis said in a statement. “I’ve really missed these guys and the feel of being around the team and in the locker room. I am focused on rehabbing and getting my arm and body as strong as they can be. I will speak in person when I know a little more about my progress. I’m working hard and looking forward to coming back and helping this team. But right now, the focus should be on the guys playing, and I’ll be the biggest cheerleader I can be for them.”
Lewis turns 38 in May, and a return for next season would mean his 18th year in the league. Lewis has been rumored to retire, as he said last summer that he can’t see himself playing past 37 as his son starts playing football in college next year.

They may be 6-2, but dating back to week 1, this team has not won a single game by 10 or more and only one was decided by more than a touchdown, last week at Cleveland, a game in which the lowly Browns actually scored more frequently than the Ravens, but frequently imploded in field goal range and had to settle for 5 field goals. On that stretch, they’ve...
