Ray Lewis: “I’m making progress”

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis returned to the practice field Wednesday, even though he’s not eligible to play this week.

And he apparently doesn’t want to say much more until he is, which would be in Week 15.

“I’m making progress and will practice some today,” Lewis said in a statement released by the team. “But, the story shouldn’t be about me right now. We’re playing the Redskins Sunday, and I am not eligible to play. If I can help prepare my team in some way for that game, I will.

“When I know I will play in a game, or when I play in game, I will say more then.”

The fact he’s even close to returning is impressive, after tearing his triceps in October.
