OWINGS MILLS, Md. — For the third week in a row, the Ravens have listed linebacker Ray Lewis as questionable on the final injury report of the week.
And it appears the final outcome will remain unchanged as Lewis is likely to miss his third straight game as Baltimore takes on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon. Head coach John Harbaugh stated he was hopeful that Lewis might be able to play early in the week, but his comments were brief and uninspiring when asked about his star linebacker’s odds for playing in Cleveland.

“I feel like there is a chance,” said Harbaugh, who said earlier this week he was hopeful Lewis would be able to play against Cleveland. “We’ll just see how it goes.”
The good news is that third-year linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is probable after sitting out last week’s win over San Francisco with a re-aggravated hamstring injury. Ellerbe was a full participant in practice all week and will likely start in place of Lewis after progressing nicely in workouts, according to Harbaugh.
Cornerback Chris Carr will miss his second straight game with a back injury. He practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday before sitting out the last two practices of the week.
Defensive tackle Arthur Jones will make his return to action after missing the Ravens’ last two games with a concussion he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 13. The second-year Syracuse product is eager to rejoin the defensive line rotation and to stop big Cleveland running back Peyton Hillis, especially after an unpleasant recovery period from the head injury.
“I can’t wait,” Jones said. “I feel great. It was a fun week of practice, feels good being back out there. Two weeks off in a dark room wasn’t fun trying to get my body and my physical health back right.”
The Browns ruled out starting safety T.J. Ward, adding to their woes on the starting defense after end Emmanuel Stephens and linebacker Scott Fujita were placed on injured reserve earlier in the week.
