Tell Chris your opinion.

It's only the preseason, but the injury concerns are already starting up for Jamal Lewis. Lewis will not play the next two weeks due to a hip injury that has been bothering him. He has recorded 15 carries for 65 yards over his first two preseason games and has been "ok", but would like to rest before the regular season.

"Jamal has had a good camp so far. Medically, it's prudent at this point to give him a chance to fully rehab it and get the last bit of soreness -- whatever is going on in there -- out," said head coach Brian Billick. "Between now and the beginning of the season that's what our focus is going to be. We're giving him two weeks to get the proper rehab and crank it up for Tampa Bay."

Lewis has stated that he didn't worsen his health by playing the past two games - he simply needs to rest and let the soreness go away.

"It isn't all the way gone," Lewis said. "I'm still dealing with the injury and soreness, but it's not so bad that I can't play. It's just something I have to work through."

The Ravens added veteran running back Mike Anderson in the offseason as an insurance policy to Lewis. Also, Musa Smith has done well in the preseason, and could also see expanded playing time if Lewis suffers another setback.
