LEWIS PLACED ON IR WITH DESIGNATION TO RETURN
Fri, 19 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

The Ravens haven’t completely given up hope of having Ray Lewis back in uniform this season.

Lewis tore his right triceps in Sunday’s game against Dallas Cowboys and underwent surgery on Wed., a league source recounted. Lewis is not planning to travel with the Baltimore Ravens for their game Sunday against the Texans, the source claimed.

Although Coach John Harbaugh claimed Monday that the 37-year-old linebacker is out for the year, the Ravens placed Lewis on injured reserve with the “designated to return” tag. By rule, Lewis must sit out 8 weeks before he can return this season. He is going to be eligible to practice after 6 weeks and permitted to return to play in Week 15 if he’s healthy.

But the register to return from a torn triceps, which Harbaugh called a “full tear” on Monday, is longer. A better estimate on the recovery period from the surgery can be determined depending on whether the tear is to the tendon or the muscle.

Lewis does not count against the 53-man roster.

“We haven’t any idea whether or not that time-frame has anything to do with the injury, but there’s an opportunity and we’re going to keep the door open,” Harbaugh said. “We’ll just see where that goes moving forward.”

The loss of Lewis coincides with the return of LB Terrell Suggs, the 2011 NFL defensive player of the year. Suggs practiced Wednesday for the 1st time this season after missing months with a torn right Achilles tendon.

Suggs is still favoring his right leg, so the Ravens are not looking for much from him too soon.

“To what extent, to what he’s able to do, I believe we should temper our expectations a little bit,” Harbaugh recounted. “He’s coming off a bad injury. I think he’s worked really hard. He’s done a great job with the rehab, he’s followed protocol. He had no setbacks all though the course course of the whole deal.” Football spreads

To fill the void left by Lewis’ removal from the roster, the Ravens activated LB Josh Bynes from their practice squad.

Lewis leads the Ravens in tackles and is the unquestioned leader not only of the defense but also of the entire team.

Asked who might assume the leadership role, Harbaugh answered, “You replace that with 53 guys. … Ray is still with us. He is going to be around and be a part of what we’re doing.”

Harbaugh also revealed Wednesday that cornerback Lardarius Webb ripped his meniscus as well as his ACL in his left knee in the victory against the Cowboys. Webb was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday and will endure surgery later this week.

“They’ll fix both those things and we’ll let you know how it goes,” Harbaugh asserted, according to the team’s website.
