Ray Lewis unlikely to play Sunday

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against Cincinnati because of a toe injury that has prevented him from practicing all week.

Citing Lewis' toughness, Ravens coach John Harbaugh refused to rule out the two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year against the Bengals.

Lewis visited a South Florida specialist Thursday, who confirmed the damage to his toe suffered in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Lewis has started 57 consecutive games, a streak dating back to December 2007. Lewis, 37, leads the Ravens with 68 tackles, also getting two sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles this season.
