Despite a report earlier this week that Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will not play against the Bengals because of a toe injury that could keep him out four weeks, Lewis hasn’t given up hope on this Sunday yet.
Peter King reported at halftime of Notre Dame’s game on Saturday that Lewis will try to suit up despite his injury. King said he’d be surprised if Lewis played, but wouldn’t rule it out.
Lewis, who has enjoyed yet another resurgent season this year, hasn’t missed a game since 2007.
UPDATE 9:45 a.m. ET 11/20/11: Ray Lewis will not play Sunday, according to Warren Sapp of NFL Network.
