Ray Lewis 'day by day'

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was rehabbing his torn triceps injury Wednesday at the team's facility, but it still is unknown whether the former two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year will practice this week.

Lewis, who is on the injured reserve/designated to return list, is eligible to begin practicing Thursday. Ravens coach John Harbaugh classified Lewis' status as "day by day."

"He is not imminent to return to play (in a game) or anything like that, so to me it's really a nonstory," Harbaugh said Wednesday. "He'll go out there when he's ready to practice when the elbow holds up. And when that happens, we'll let you know."

Lewis won't be eligible to play until Dec. 16 against the Denver Broncos at the earliest.
