Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps) returned to practice this week. If it wasn't for the league rules, he would be ready to play too.
Fox Sports Insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reports that Lewis is ready to go right now. The Ravens expect him to be available next week, when league rules allow Lewis to return. Lewis has been out since getting hurt on Oct. 14.

Lewis was placed on injured reserve with a designated to return tag. Initially, it was believed that Lewis would be lucky to return in time for the playoffs. Instead, it sounds like he'll get three regular season games to get back up to game speed in time to face the Denver Broncos in a massive AFC showdown in Week 15.
