The Ravens have all their weapons available in San Diego.

Linebacker Ray Lewis, cornerback Lardarius Webb, kicker Billy Cundiff and cornerback Chris Carr are all good to go against the Chargers.

Baltimore doesn’t have any injury scratches.

Lewis will play for the first time since Week 10 against Seattle on Nov. 13 – a four-game streak. He’s been wearing a shoe insert to help protect his turf toe injury and likely has it in tonight.

Lewis’ return will bolster a linebacker corps facing a dangerous running back duo of Ryan Matthews and Mike Tolbert. It also provides an emotional surge to the unit.

“To have the general out there on the field again with the troops, that’s going to be real good,” defensive end Cory Redding said on Friday. “You all haven’t seen nothing yet.”

Baltimore will also have the services of its top cornerback against San Diego’s vertical passing attack of quarterback Philip Rivers and 6-foot-5 wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd.

Webb, who leads the team in interceptions and pass deflections, suffered a toe injury last week against Indianapolis. Head Coach John Harbaugh said on Monday that he anticipated Webb would play, contrary to reports.

From a press box perspective, Webb looked at full speed doing defensive back drills before the game, testing out his burst and cutting.

Cundiff did not practice all week, but that was likely to give his left calf injury as much rest as possible. Cundiff was held out of kickoffs in the second half last week, but was perfect on field goals and extra points.

Carr has missed the past three games due to a back injury. His return to the No. 4 cornerback spot gives Baltimore its full secondary.

Baltimore’s scratches are wide receiver LaQuan Williams, wide receiver Tandon Doss, running back Anthony Allen, defensive back Danny Gorrer, outside linebacker Chavis Williams, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and outside linebacker Sergio Kindle.

San Diego’s inactives are wide receiver Bryan Walters, cornerback Shareece Wright, defensive end Jacques Cesaire, guard/tackle Tony Moll, outside linebacker Everette Brown and linebacker Nate Triplett.
