Lewis hurt but will play vs. Jets

Ray LewisIf there’s one constant, it would be this – Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, save for being in a coma, will play most weeks.  This week, the injury is a wrapped-up strained triceps muscle on his right arm.  But that won’t stop Lewis from starting Sunday against the New York Jets at M&T Bank Stadium.

Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan probably said it best when he told the Associated Press and other media outlets, “It’s amazing how he can pull a whole team with him.  He can play in those situations when 99.9 percent of average guys aren’t going to play.  He’s a special guy.”  Lewis did not practice at all this week and four other starters missed at least 1 practice (offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, quarterback Steve McNair, safety Ed Reed and cornerback Samari Rolle).

Speaking of injuries, Ogden will most likely not play against the Jets because of his problematic injured toe, and McNair is most likely a gametime decision; he is suffering from a strained groin.  So adjustments will have to be made today on the offensive side of the ball for the Ravens to have any continued success against the Jets.
