The Baltimore Ravens have now released what will likely be their final injury report of Week 17 ahead of their Sunday afternoon home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Friday offering shows that five players are questionable for the contest with one other being ruled out for it.
After failing to practice all week the Ravens officially listed running back Mark Ingram (calf) as out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers on the team’s injury report.
Ending the week listed as questionable by the Ravens for Sunday’s game against the Steelers are wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness), tight end Mark Andrews (ankle), cornerback Jimmy Smith (groin), cornerback Marcus Peters (chest) and safety Earl Thomas (knee, hand). Brown and Thomas are both listed as sitting out Friday’s practice while Smith is listed as a limited participant earlier in the day. The Ravens don’t intend on playing Thomas against the Steelers.
Practicing fully for the Ravens on Friday were defensive tackle Brandon Williams (not injury related), defensive end Chris Wormley (not injury related) and cornerback Brandon Carr (not injury related).
The Ravens had already planned on sitting Ingram, Thomas, Williams, guard Marshall Yanda and quarterback Lamar Jackson on Sunday to get them all rested for the playoffs. Those five players figure to be listed on the Ravens pregame inactive list along with two others.
The Ravens will start quarterback Robert Griffin III against the Steelers in place of Jackson along with running back Gus Edwards in place of Ingram.
