(NEW YORK) — When Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis tore his triceps last month, his season was believed to be over and possibly his career. Now it looks like he may be coming back this season after all.
According to Yahoo! Sports, citing more than six sources, Lewis is expected to return to the team sometime next month. The 37-year old Lewis was off to another productive season before suffering the injury Week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys. Some feared it would be a career-ending injury.
“For the greatest player in Ravens history to be able to return from this injury and come onto this championship run with us? When he was said to be down and out? Man, that’s a critical mass,” Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo told Yahoo!”
Lewis has been with the Ravens since his rookie year in 1996. He is widely considered one of the best linebackers of all time as well as the greatest player in Ravens franchise history.
The Ravens placed him on injured/designated to return list last month just in case Lewis could return this season and it looks like that move just might pay off for the team.
