Terrell Suggs pulled off the impossible when he took the field just five months and two weeks after tearing his Achilles. Now, Ray Lewis, not to be outdone, may make his own remarkable return as soon as week 15.
Lewis suffered a fully torn triceps in the Ravens October 14th victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The injury requires a four month recovery period, but YahooSports Michael Silver reports that Lewis may be targeting a December 16th comeback against the Denver Broncos. If that is the case, Lewis expects to have made a full recovery in half the typical recovery time.
Lewis has long prided himself on his extreme efforts to take care of his body. His off-season workouts border on fanatical, and he follows a strict regimen of eating and sleeping. He is also known in somewhat mythical terms for his ability to impose his will—in game situations and in terms of the length of his career.
