The Baltimore Ravens have now released their first injury report of Week 17 ahead of their Sunday afternoon home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Wednesday offering shows six players listed on an estimated report as the team did not practice on Christmas Day.
Had the Ravens practiced on Wednesday the team estimates that tight end Mark Andrews (ankle), cornerback Brandon Carr (not injury related), running back Mark Ingram (ankle), cornerback Marcus Peters (chest), cornerback Jimmy Smith (not injury related) and safety Earl Thomas (not injury related) would have all sat the session out. Andrews, Ingram and Peters are the only three of the six players dealing with injuries.
The Ravens have already indicated that Ingram and Thomas are likely to be held out of Sunday’s game against the Steelers along with quarterback Lamar Jackson, guard Marshal Yanda, and defensive tackle Brandon Williams so that those players can rest up for the playoffs.
The Ravens will have seven inactive players on Sunday against the Steelers and it will be interesting to see if Andrews and Peters round out the list. The Ravens Week 17 game against the Steelers is meaninglessness to Baltimore because of them already having home field advantage throughout the playoffs locked up as of this past Sunday.
