NFL notes: Ravens LB Lewis won’t play

Associated Press
 

Injured Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis won’t play today against the Denver Broncos.

Lewis has been sidelined since tearing his right triceps on Oct. 14 against the Dallas Cowboys. The 17-year NFL veteran is now eligible to come off the injured-reserve-designated-to-return list, but the Ravens did not move him to the active roster before Saturday’s deadline.

The 37-year-old Lewis has been practicing for the past two weeks but obviously is not healthy enough to return.

Cousins to start for injured RG III

Rookie Kirk Cousins will start for the Washington Redskins in place of Robert Griffin III.

Griffin, the NFL’s leading passer, sprained his right knee in last week’s overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens. He was limited in practice all week.

Cowboys LB Brown remembered

Friends, family, teammates and members of the community filled a church to say goodbye to former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jerry Brown.

He was remembered Saturday morning for his religious beliefs, sense of humor, presence and his lifelong desire to play in the NFL.

Brown died when the car he was riding in flipped after hitting a curb. The driver, Josh Brent a teammate with the Cowboys.
