OWINGS MILLS, MD. (AP) - Ray Lewis has been placed on injured reserve with the “designated to return” tag, which provides him the chance to play again this season.

Lewis tore his right triceps in Sunday’s game against Dallas. He was scheduled to undergo surgery on Wednesday.

His return his season is unlikely, but by being designated to return, the 37-year-old is eligible to come back in six weeks.

Coach John Harbaugh says, “We have no idea whether that time frame has anything to do with the injury, but there’s an opportunity and we’re going to keep the door open.”

The loss of Lewis was balanced somewhat by the return of linebacker Terrell Suggs, who practiced Wednesday for the first time this season. Suggs has been out with a torn right Achillies tendon.
