Walking off the field in Denver with running back Ray Rice last Saturday, Lewis was delighted to still be playing football and apparently not the least bit saddened about knowing he had one or two games left.
‘‘I'm proud that the ride is still going,’’ Lewis said Wednesday. ‘‘I looked at my teammates after the Denver game, and me and Ray just sat there. We hugged on the field, and he grabbed me kind of hard. It’s just special. To end it, whenever it ends, then so be it.’’
