Ray Lewis Injury: Ravens LB Still Hopes To Play Thanksgiving Night

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis watched his team from the sidelines last week for the first time since 2007. The all-world linebacker missed the Ravens' 31-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals because of a toe injury. Lewis issued a statement today telling the media that he is "making some progress" and that he wants to play in Thanksgiving night battle against the San Francisco 49ers

With the Ravens in thick of a playoff hunt and facing one of their biggest games of the year in Thursday's "Harbaugh Bowl," Lewis' anxiousness to return to the field was clear in his statement. Lewis suffered his toe injury in a week 10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks

Yesterday, Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh was quoted by Peter King saying that Lewis had a "realistic chance" to play this week, though it was somewhere less than a 50 percent chance. Lewis, 36, was at one time expected by some to miss as many as four weeks.
