Baltimore Ravens Injury Report: Who’s Playing, Who’s Not


The Baltimore Ravens injury report is extensive as they travel to the Steel City to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 9. Both teams need this win.

For the Ravens, they are coming off of a heartbreaking loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last week and are looking to sweep the season series from the Steelers. As for Pittsburgh, they can ill-afford to be swept by Baltimore, as it would put them a game behind them in the standings, and they would lose the tiebreaker as well.

With that being said, it will be a hard fought battle.

Here are the injuries that could have an impact on the game, and let’s just hope that more injuries don’t come out of this match up, because that often does happen when these two teams meet each other.

Questionable: TE Owen Daniels (knee), DE Chris Canty (wrist), RG Marshal Yanda (knee)

Tight end Owen Daniels missed last week’s game against Cincy, and it forced rookie Crockett Gilmore to make his first career NFL start. Joe Flacco will be happy to know that he might have his tight end back.

Daniels will be a game-time decision for Sunday night’s game. He underwent minor knee surgery a week and a half ago, and he was expected to miss a week or two, so nothing too serious has occurred here.

As for Chris Canty, he has missed the last four games after undergoing surgery on his wrist. He may play for the first time since Week 5 on Sunday. “Overall I feel good. I feel healthy,” Canty said. “I think the coaches think I’m coming along nicely, and we’ll see where I’m at. They’ll evaluate things and hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to help this team come Sunday.”

Offensive guard Marshal Yanda was a full participant in Friday’s practice, and the Ravens don’t seem to be too concerned about his status for Sunday’s game. With Yanda being the tough guy that he is, I think you should expect him to participate in Sunday’s game. After all, who wants to miss out on an opportunity to play in a Ravens-Steelers battle?

OUT: CB Jimmy Smith (foot), WR Michael Campanaro

Head coach John Harbaugh said that cornerback Jimmy Smith would miss a few weeks after suffering a foot injury last week, but this week he has been officially ruled out. This will mean that other cornerbacks such as Lardarius Webb and Dominique Franks will have to step up, because Smith has been the most valuable defensive back for the Ravens this year.

Rookie receiver Michael Campanaro put up the best performance of his career last week, recording three receptions for 40 yards. Unfortunately for him and the Ravens, he will not be able to carry that play into Week 9, because he has been ruled out of Sunday nights game.

Others listed on the injury report for the Ravens are as follows: Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, running back Justin Forsett, and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. They are all probable and should be good to go for the game against Pittsburgh.

Steelers’ CB Ike Taylor ruled OUT

The Steelers’ No. 1 cornerback Ike Taylor has been ruled out of Sunday night’s game. This could be a great opportunity for Joe Flacco and Torrey Smith, as they won’t have to worry about going up against the Steelers’ top defensive back.

Pittsburgh also listed nine other players as probable including safety Troy Polamalu, linebacker Ryan Shazier, and offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert. Don’t expect any of those players not to participate in this game.
