Terrell Suggs reportedly won’t be the only member of the Baltimore Ravens’ defense to defy the chances by returning this season from what was considered to be a season-ending injury.

Sources claimed that fellow LB Ray Lewis is expected to return sometime this month despite tearing his triceps against the Dallas Cowboys last month.

“At the end of the day, you’re going to see Ray Lewis again,” said veteran Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo, one of the many players attempting to fill the void in the future Hall of Famer’s absence.”For the greatest player in Ravens history to be in a position to return from this injury and come on this championship run with us? When he was said to be down and out? Man, that’s critical mass, when he comes through that tunnel, that’s going to be the earthquake and the tsunami”.

Lewis was in San Diego on Sunday to watch at his team rally for a 16-13 overtime victory and gave his teammates a pregame speech. He wouldn’t confirm that he plans to return this season.

“You’ve got eyes — what are you expecting to happen? I’m here to support my team,” he claimed.

Sunday’s victory, thanks largely to Ray Rice’s 4th-and-29 conversion in 4th quarter on a drive that allowed the Baltimore to tie the game, moved Baltimore to 9-2. The Ravens hold a commanding 3-game lead in the AFC North over the Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, who both are 6-5.

Suggs returned to play last month despite of suffering a torn Achilles tendon in May. Suggs said that making it to the AFC Championship Game only to lose last season inspired his quick return.

Suggs said that doctors told him “the earliest most people come back from this is 9 months, but it’s usually a year.”

“I just chose not to accept that. I had to get back. We came so close last year. We are on the brink of something big. I didn’t wish to leave the job undone,” he said.

The Baltimore Ravens placed Lewis on the injured /designated to return list last month but had been neutral about his prospects of playing again this season. Lewis might return to practice as soon as Thursday, the 1st day he is eligible to return.

A source close to Lewis, 37-year-old LB has been aggressively treating his triceps injury with a change of platelet-rich plasma care that helped injured former Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward exploited a similar treatment to play in Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl XLIII win over the Cardinals despite having a sprained knee.

Lewis could return to the field as soon as Dec. 16 against the Broncos or the next week against the N.Y Giants. If the Ravens make a decision to be cautious, Lewis may be saved for their playoff opener, too.

Said Baltimore coach John Harbaugh: “I would say it’s possible. We cannot put Ray out there till he’s ready to win those battles. But if it can be done, yes, we wish to do it.”
