OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As the Ravens move closer to a meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, it’s appearing more likely star linebacker Ray Lewis will be sidelined for his third straight game with a turf toe injury.

Lewis was absent from the portion of practice open to the media for the second straight day, putting his status in further doubt as he continues to receive treatment for the injury he suffered in the Ravens’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 13.

Cornerback Chris Carr (back) was also absent during the open portion of practice after he worked on a limited basis on Wednesday. The veteran missed Baltimore’s Thanksgiving night game against the San Francisco 49ers last week.

Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (thigh), running back Anthony Allen (thigh), and defensive tackle Arthur Jones were present and working during the open portion of practice. All three were listed as full participants on Wednesday’s official injury report.
