Jamal Lewis a 50-50 shot for Monday night

It’ll be interesting to see how the fans in Cleveland greet running back Jamal Lewis, who earlier this week sounded off regarding coach Eric Mangini’s practice habits.

But there’s a chance Lewis won’t be trotting onto the field at all on Monday night, due to an ankle injury that limited him in practice this week.  He’s officially listed as questionable for what would be (if he makes good on his retirement talk) his final career game against the Ravens, the team that made him a top-ten draft pick in 2000.

Seven other Browns are questionable, including defensive lineman Kenyon Coleman (groin), tight end Michael Gaines (hamstring), offensive lineman Rex Hadnot (knee), tight end Steve Heiden (knee), receiver Chansi Stuckey (calf), fullback Lawrence Vickers (hamstring), and punter Dave Zastudil (right knee).  Linebacker David Bowens (knee), offensive lineman Hank Fraley (knee), defensive lineman Coye Francies (knee), offensive lineman Alex Mack (wrist), and tight end Robert Royal (finger) are probable.

For the Ravens, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (ankle), cornerback Lardarius Webb (illness), and running back Matt Lawrence (knee) are questionable.  Ten players are listed as probable:  cornerback Chris Carr (illness), linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (illness), tackle Jared Gaither (neck), tight end Todd Heap (ankle), linebacker Jarret Johnson (shoulder), linebacker Ray Lewis (foot), safety Hakuri Nakamura (chest), safety Ed Reed (wrist), cornerback Fabian Washington (thigh), and receiver Kelley Washington (back).

  1. Jamal will be out on the field come Mon. I can’t see him sitting out and not playing his old team one last time.

  2. why so he could get his head kicked in one last time by his old teamates??? i wouldnt hold it against him for saying “f” it! that guy has got to be thinking i came back for this?

  3. I feel bad for Jamal, when he went there to finish out his career it seemed like they had turned things around and he would at least be in the playoff hunt in his final years and maybe have superbowl dreams. I hate when vets have to finish their careers with sucky teams.

  4. Makes one yearn for the days of Scab players. At least they wanted to play, hurt or not! (And they weren’t any worse than this current bunch of spoiled babies)
    I wonder how many of these prima donnas, in peak of physical conditioning, could put up with our daily jobs.
    I drive long haul, gone for several weeks at a time. If I’m sick or hurt and can’t work, I don’t get paid! I would love to practice 2-3 hours a day for the league minimum. Get the f*ck over it and play…or bring back the Scabs!!!
