Lewis activated by Ravens but won't play Sunday
The 37-year-old was placed on the injured reserve-designated to return list after tearing his right triceps on Oct. 14. He returned to practice on Dec. 5, and in order for him to be eligible for the playoffs, the Ravens had to add him to the active roster by Wednesday.
Baltimore cleared room for Lewis by placing wide receiver LaQuan Williams on injured reserve with a leg injury.
Lewis has missed nine straight games. He was eligible to return to game action two weeks ago, but he has some atrophy in his right arm after having surgery on Oct. 17.
