Suspension is for weeks 7 & 8 I heard.
"Sometime during the Pats game last week, I decided that Tomlinson was the best overall running back of my lifetime. There's nothing he can't do: deadly receiver, tough inside runner, explosive to the outside, you name it." - ESPN's Bill Simmons

According to my sources, Lewis will play this weekend and his suspension is to begin after the Baltimore bye week.

Update: If starting running back Jamal Lewis misses time due to suspension, Taylor will combine with Musa Smith in a running-back-by-committee, reports the Ravens official website.

Recommendation: According to Ravens coach Brian Billick, "I'm not real big on the label "starter," but I can tell you that both of those players (Taylor and Smith) will see substantial time in the backfield. We also want to continue to work B.J. Sams into our offense." A three-man committee is even worse for fantasy owners than a two-man committee, which makes it difficult to suggest a single handcuff (no pun intended) for Lewis. Despite competition from the bruising Smith and the speedy Sams, Taylor is the early favorite to get more action in Lewis' absence. Taylor has 21 rushing attempts for 121 yards this season, while neither Smith nor Sams have a single carry.

Oct. 7, 2004 wire reports

ATLANTA -- Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis received a two-game suspension from the league after pleading guilty Thursday to using a cell phone to try to set up a drug deal. He will also be sentenced to four months in prison, to be served after the regular season ends in January.

It looks like he will play this week against Washington and begin his suspension week 7.
