R. Lewis could be out for a month

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens will be without All-Pro middle linebacker Ray Lewis until at least Nov. 20 due to a thigh injury he suffered in last week's loss to the Chicago Bears, coach Brian Billick said Saturday.

Billick said that Lewis is under a four-week prognosis, which has already ruled him out for Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Under a worst-case scenario, Lewis would be out perhaps as long as the Ravens' Dec. 4 game against the Houston Texans.

Meanwhile, Billick said the Ravens, who will also be without Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed on Monday due to a high-ankle sprain, hope to have Reed back in the lineup next week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Ravens will start Tommy Polley at middle linebacker and Chad Williams at strong safety against the Steelers.
