Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will miss his fourth straight game, though it probably doesn't matter that much against the Indianapolis Colts. Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley (foot) will not be able to replace the suspended Ndamukong Suh, which is a slightly bigger deal against the Minnesota Vikings, though the underrated Sammie Lee Hill can take the three-tech responsibility — especially since Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (ankle) won't play, either.
