The Baltimore Ravens are flying high at 9-2 and winners of four straight heading into their AFC North rival matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday evening. This week, the Ravens compiled an injury report that has 14 players listed.
Of the 14 players on the injury report, four were full participants, five limited participants, four did not practice players, and one that has already been ruled out.
- Full Participants – WR Anquan Boldin (knee), DT Terrence Cody (elbow), TE Dennis Pitta (neck), and LB Terrell Suggs (ankle).
- Limited Participants – CB Chris Johnson (thigh), DE Pernell McPhee (thigh), S Bernard Pollard (chest), S Ed Reed (shoulder), and WR Torrey Smith (thigh).
- Did not Participate – TE Ed Dickson (knee), LB Dannell Ellerbe (ankle, knee, finger), CB Corey Graham (illness), and WR Jacoby Jones (ankle).
- Out – CB Jimmy Smith
Of the limited participants and did not practice players, two are the biggest concerns in regards to their availability for Sunday. Ed Dickson sustained a knee injury last week against San Diego during their 16-13 victory, and Dannell Ellerbe (whose birthday is today!) suffered an ankle injury. Both guys will likely be considered questionable for the game, and coach John Harbaugh stated on Monday that he thought both players have a chance to play on Sunday.
Baltimore will be looking for their fifth straight victory when they battle with Pittsburgh, and with a victory and a Cincinnati Bengals loss, the Ravens will clinch the AFC North with four games remaining. It is still up in the air for Pittsburgh as to who will be under center come game time, Ben Roethlisberger or Charlie Batch. It is an exciting time to be a Ravens fan and this week could be twice as sweet with a victory over the Steelers and another AFC North division title.
