Lewis headlines list of Ravens' inactives vs. Browns


inside linebacker

Ray Lewis

headlines the list of inactives for Sunday’s game against the

Cleveland Browns

. Lewis, who has a toe injury, has now missed three consecutive games for the first time since 2005.

Lewis did not practice this week and Ravens coach

John Harbaugh

told reporters on Friday that there was a chance Lewis could play on Sunday, though the team is conscious of the long-term risk of rushing Lewis back.

The inactive list does have one silver lining, though.

Dannell Ellerbe

, the primary backup to Lewis, will return to the field after missing the Thanksgiving night win over the

San Francisco 49ers

with a


injury. Ellerbe will start alongside

Jameel McClain


Brendon Ayanbadejo


Albert McClellan

backing those two up.
