The SportsXchange

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is not expected to return from a torn triceps for the rest of the regular season, according to a report Saturday on the NFL Network. However, he could be back in three weeks for the playoffs. Lewis has been practicing for the past three weeks. He sustained the injury two months ago. Ravens coach John Harbaugh responded to reports Friday that Lewis might play by saying only that he was "coming along." The Ravens announced that they placed linebacker Jameel McClain on injured reserve and signed linebacker Adrian Hamilton from their practice squad to the 53-man roster.

---The NFL Players' Association expects the salary cap to increase only slightly to about $400,000 per team next season, according to Yahoo! Sports. If that occurs, the overall cap would go from $120.6 million to $121 million, a 3.3 percent increase. That would represent the smallest increase in the 20-year history of the cap. NBC Sports' ProFootballTalk.com pointed out that tax rate for the highest earners is expected to increase by 4.6 percent next year.

---Injured New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw and defensive end Justin Tuck traveled with the team to Baltimore for Sunday's game against the Ravens, according to ESPN New York. Bradshaw and Tuck were listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Bradshaw, who did not play last week because of a knee injury, practiced on a limited basis this week. Tuck did not practice this week because of a shoulder injury. Tight end Travis Beckum was ruled out with a knee injury.

---The Green Bay Packers added rookie offensive lineman Don Barclay to their injury report Saturday with an illness. Barclay is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee. Barclay has started the last two games at right tackle for the Packers because Bryan Bulaga is injured. ... The San Francisco 49ers announced Saturday's promotion of linebacker Cam Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster and signed him to a two-year contract. Johnson was a seventh round draft choice of the 49ers in the April draft. He has been on the team's practice squad all season.
