After weeks and weeks of injuries being the story of the Ravens’ season, the team has next to none to speak of heading into Sunday’s finale at Cincinnati.
Could the Ravens be getting healthy at just the right time? The playoffs are a little more than a week away, and Baltimore could have all key players other than Lardarius Webb and Jameel McClain available by the first round.
For Sunday’s contest, the Ravens listed seven players as questionable, but none as out or doubtful. Those seven are: wideouts Anquan Boldin (shoulder) and Tandon Doss (ankle), defensive end Arthur Jones (thigh), fullback Vonta Leach (ankle), linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder/thigh), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee) and guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder/knee).
The Ravens also reported nine players as probable: linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle), wideout Jacoby Jones (ankle), linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps), defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), tight end Dennis Pitta (knee), safety Bernard Pollard (chest), safety Ed Reed (shoulder), cornerback Jimmy Smith (abdomen) and linebacker Terrell Suggs (biceps).
Coach John Harbaugh has repeatedly said Lewis will not play Sunday, but could return in the playoffs.
The Bengals have ruled out kicker Mike Nugent (right calf) and listed cornerbacks Jason Allen (hamstring) and Terence Newman (groin) as questionable.
Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness), cornerback Adam Jones (hamstring) and safety Reggie Nelson (shoulder) are all probable for the finale.
