Ray Lewis is questionable again for Thursday night

Ray Lewis AP

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was listed as questionable for the team’s Week 11 game against the Bengals with a foot injury suffered in a Week 10 loss to the Seahawks.

On Sunday morning, Lewis told former University of Miami teammate Warren Sapp that Lewis wouldn’t play.  And Lewis didn’t play.

Now, with the Ravens preparing to to host the first ever Har-Bowl, Lewis once again is officially questionable to play.

And so we’ll have to wait for Warren to break the news, again.

Also questionable are running back Anthony Allen (thigh), cornerback Chris Carr (back) and linebacker Daniel Ellerbe (thigh).  Defensive tackle Arthur Jones (head) is doubtful, and safety Haruki Nakamura (thigh) is probable.

The best news for the Ravens is that receiver Lee Evans has exited the injury list, meaning that he’s healthy and ready to roll.  With rookie and reigning AFC offensive player of the week Torrey Smith emerging as the team’s deep threat, however, Evans’ opportunities may be limited.

But with two fleet-footed wideouts, the Ravens may finally be able to stretch the field.

    He has a knifing pain in his heel.

    Well it’s official — the officials totally blew the interpretation of the Calvin Johnson rule. “NFL Turning Point” showed how the same thing was ALLOWED by Victor Cruz of the Giants — but for some reason, they chose not to let Cincy have the same thing. Gresham, by the way, was in possession when he crossed the goal line — what a total botch job by the refs.

    Your typical Ravens fan of course will now lecture the Bengals fan to “stay classy and not whine about the calls.” This of course coming from the same Ravens fans who have whined about the Steelers supposedly getting calls all the time. Interesting to see how they act when the tables are turned, and the calls go their way. Tsk tsk.

    If only Five Guys Tandon Doss were there to break up Ray Lewis, lol.

    The man he killed has, again, been ruled out.

    Haters gonna hate.

    Hey ampat, see every NFL fan everywhere…fans are fickle in every sport at every level. It’s called a matter of perspective, it’s time you got one.

    Again, play should have never happened as the officials missed a catch and fumble at the Ravens 35 that would have given the ball back. I’ll count it as all square.

    Dont risk further injury. If hes not ready, sit him.

  8. flabtreesports says: Nov 24, 2011 1:10 AM

    Ampatsisahypocrite, the complaining is well past hilarious and is approaching pathetic. Focus on the Chiefs and whatever calls the Steelers may or may not get.

  9. baltimoreballs says: Nov 24, 2011 1:15 AM

    People outside of Baltimore don’t really understand what he does for this city. Besides football, crabcakes, heroin, and Ray Lewis what else do we have?

    Que the stabbing jokes. They’re really really really funny, and if you make one you’re automatically a comedian.

    ================================

    Uh, he never actually killed anybody!

    His friends did the killing then he just ran over and jumped on the guy well after he was dead.

    I hope he plays, so there are no excuses when the 49ers win!

  12. jeepin08 says: Nov 24, 2011 6:47 AM

    Smoke screen.
    He will play for this one but probably sit the next couple of games.

  13. steeltownpride says: Nov 24, 2011 7:06 AM

    G.O.A.T ?

    You must be talking about Jack Lambert .

    ampatsisahypocrite – Although your post isn’t about 52’s injury, you strike a good point. However capping it off with “Tsk Tsk” completely removes your credibility.

  15. steelersownyou says: Nov 24, 2011 8:05 AM

    His career is over! Thank god. That stupid dance he does is pathetic! At this point in his career he’s a cheerleader more than he is a football player! Nobody fears him or game plans for him. all of STEELERS NATION WILL BE ROOTING TODAY…GO 49ERS!

    Ray Lewis=SOFT!

    Nice to hear from SteelersAreOwned……

    After 16 seasons, Ray still plays at a high level. On the field, I’d still take him over 90% of active MLB’s. Aside from physical skills, the leadership he demonstrates and the way he communicates the play calls to the rest of the defense still warrants him “elite” status. A few of the defenders said there were communication problems in the Cincy game. They might be faster without him, but the execution isn’t as crisp.

    Put the bias and hate aside because this guy is an all time great. Go ahead and debate it Steeler fans. Because your efforts will be laughed at.

    Do you mean like all the squealer players waving those yellow rags like a bunch of high school girls cheerleaders?????

  20. nfloracle says: Nov 24, 2011 10:27 AM

    Replace Keyshawn with Ray. Mike him up and let him start praising God and analyzing football games on ESPN. He could even do his wildman dance as the show’s intro — that’s bound to boost ratings.

    Or give him Sapp’s job on Inside the NFL.

    Ray’s done. This new injury is the beginning of the end.

  21. steelersownyou says: Nov 24, 2011 10:36 AM

    They have commercials with terrible towel.. Yellow towel has magic. Unlike that crow you have and those ridiculous dumb bird hats your fans wear like patients in a mental ward! No room to talk cry-vens fans!

    You sure your not describing Whines Hard ???
    Wasn’t it Lewis hit that pretty much ended Whines carreer ? Chew on that one.

    Hey Stairwayto7 while I love your screen name and it’s great that you’re another proud Steeler fan Ray Lewis is hardly soft. Let’s be honest here Lewis is one of the greatest linebackers to ever strap it on… he should have been a Steeler.

  24. franknunley57 says: Nov 24, 2011 10:45 AM

    #1 rushing defense. #1 defense in pts allowed. No rushing td’s allowed over 10 games. No 100 yard rusher allowed over 10 games. +17 in turnovers. Rogers 2nd in int’s.

    “Ray Lewis is questionable again for Thursday night”

    His character is questionable all the time…

    @ampat

    Gresham wasn’t in control when he crossed the goal line. He only had one foot on the ground up to that point. The second foot didn’t hit the ground until the end zone.

    Regardless, as much as I hate some of the rules and some of the officiating, there’s a saying in the MMA that applies to football: don’t leave it up to the judges. While Cincinnati’s receivers made some great catches, if they hadn’t been bobbling the ball all day then this wouldn’t even be an argument. What happened, happened. Get over it.

  27. stevez51 says: Nov 24, 2011 1:49 PM

    Gresham’s biggest problem was he should have tucked the ball before falling to the ground. Instead he touched the ball to the ground. I was at the game and seeing the replay thought TD. But it was the Calvin Johnson rule they never changed that did it.

    Here’s to hoping Ray comes out of the tunnel tonite to the roar of the fans.

  28. koenig61 says: Nov 24, 2011 3:56 PM

    nobody in their right mind would contest Ray Lewis is/was a great player. Its like arguing Reed isnt great or Polamalu isnt great, or Ward. Only homers will say that any of these players arent great.

    TRUE NFL FANS recognize all of these players are great. BUT TRUE NFL FANS also can tell when a player is getting past their prime. Ray no longer covers side line to sideline the way he once did, just as Hines Ward isnt the player he was a few years ago. But both of them can still make big plays when needed.

    To the rest of you who are just homers and put down players because they are on a team you hate, grow up. Your ignorance of the game is showing.

    I seem to remember the Ravens fans (and many others throughout the league – probably every team at some point through the years) waving similar towels that were handed out at the gate. So, I guess that means the Ravens fans (and all the other aforementioned fans) are also like a bunch of high school cheerleaders, right?

    But one thing the Steelers fans have over all the other towel wavers – the Steelers fans buy theirs and the proceeds go to charity. Point – Steelers fans.

    I couldnt agree with you more. Its funny because real fans of the game realize just how much in common the RAVENS AND STEELERS have.

    Put Ward, Harrison, and Polamalu on the RAVENS and you would love them.

    Put Suggs, Lewis and Reed on the STEELERS and we would love them
