In what will be his final game in front of the home crowd at M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis is active and will start in Sunday’s wild-card playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Lewis, who has not played since tearing his triceps on Oct. 14, announced last week that he would be retiring at the end of the 2012 season. With the Cincinnati Bengals losing to the Houston Texans on Saturday, the No. 4 seed Ravens will not host another game during the 2012 AFC Playoffs.
For the Colts, left guard Joe Reitz was ruled out with a concussion. Jeff Linkenbach is expected to start for Reitz on Sunday.
Indianapolis: RB Delone Carter, WR Nathan Palmer, OT Tony Hills, G Joe Reitz, DT Kellen Heard, CB Teddy Williams, S Delano Howell
Baltimore: WR Deonte Thompson, OL Ramon Harewood, G Jah Reid, DT Bryan Hall, LB Adrian Hamilton, CB Chris Johnson, S Omar Brown
