Lewis is suffering from a toe injury that kept him out of practice this week.The Ravens have a short week this week, hosting the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving. Perhaps keeping Lewis out of this game will allow him to heal in time for Thursday.
Known for his toughness, Lewis has 68 tackles - 49 of them solo - this season with two sacks. The Ravens will miss the captain of their team and key to their defense against the rival Bengals, who, like the Ravens, enter the game at 6-3. The winning team will take control of the tight AFC North.
