OWINGS MILLS, Md. — It’s looking more and more likely the Ravens will have the services of veteran linebacker Ray Lewis in a critical battle with the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night.
The 36-year-old practiced for the second straight day on a limited basis after missing Baltimore’s last four games with a turf toe injury. Considering coach John Harbaugh said earlier in the week that he estimated Lewis wouldn’t necessarily need practice time before returning to game action, the inside linebacker’s attendance at practice makes his return on Sunday night all the more likely.
After being absent on Wednesday, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and left guard Ben Grubbs returned to work on a limited basis while kicker Billy Cundiff, defensive end Cory Redding, and cornerback Lardarius Webb were non-participants for the second straight day.
Mild concern has risen with Redding missing his second straight day of practice, but Webb is still considered the most serious concern among the three.
