NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported last week that Lewis isn't expected to play in the Ravens' regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he'll now be eligible to suit up for the playoffs. Ravens coach John Harbaughlater confirmed to reporters Sunday that Lewis wouldn't return until the playoffs.
"We will not look at him again for this week. We'll look at him (for) the playoffs," Harbaugh said. "It's an injury that is a 12- to 16-week injury. So, if you do the math going back, we thought there was a chance. He is progressing really well. I'm not saying he couldn't have played the last couple of weeks, but it would've been risky to re-injure it. The fact that there was some patience on Ray's part and our part, it turned out well."
