With Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis still absent from the team’s injury report — he has yet to be activated from injured reserve with a designation to return — it’s unclear whether the All-Pro will suit up on Sunday against the Broncos.
“That really is totally up to the trainers, (Ravens Head Coach) John (Harbaugh) and the organization,” Baltimore Defensive Coordinator Deen Pees said. “Whoever shows up on Sunday, that’s who we’re going to coach up.”
“You just have to go ahead with what you have.”
Things are also up in the air for fellow linebacker Terrell Suggs, who missed last week’s game with a biceps injury.
But Pees said Suggs “has been practicing and seems to be doing fine.”
He was listed as questionable on Wednesday but had full participation in Thursday’s practice.
“I feel all right,” Suggs said Thursday. “I had a week of rest. I feel a little bit better than last week, so yeah, I feel good.”
Suggs said he was “unsure” of how much he could help the team last week in Washington, which is why he ultimately decided to sit out the game. This week, “it all comes down to how (his arm) feels on Sunday.”
“If it was a Vegas game and 50/50 odds, you would have the best odds in Vegas,” Suggs said of his chances of suiting up against the Broncos. “But anything else, I wouldn’t know. So, we’ll just have to wait and see Sunday.”
Suggs acknowledged that he hopes he and Lewis can return to the field together for the home stretch of the regular season as Baltimore looks to lock up a spot in the postseason.
“Hopefully,” he said. “Like I said, we are just waiting to see. We have these last three (games), and these last three are our season. Hopefully, all that happens soon.”
