OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -The Baltimore Ravens, mired in a record eight-game losing streak, will limp into Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks without several key players.
Coach Brian Billick said middle linebacker Ray Lewis was unlikely to play because of a dislocated finger on his left hand. Tight end Todd Heap and cornerback Samari Rolle are also expected to miss the game.
Lewis injured his finger during the second half of the Ravens' 22-16 overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins, an injury that split the knuckle and required stitches. Nick Greisen, who has played for the New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars, will start in Lewis' place.
``It's not looking good,'' Billick said Friday after Lewis missed his third consecutive day of practice.
Heap has missed eight of the past 10 games with a strained hamstring. If he can't go, he'll be replaced by Daniel Wilcox and Quinn Sypniewski.
Rolle is expected to miss his third consecutive game with a shoulder injury. Rookie cornerback Willie Gaston will start in the backfield opposite Corey Ivy, who is already filling in for starter Chris McAlister (knee).
