Ellerbe, Pierce active for AFC championship

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - As coach John Harbaugh pretty much said, the Ravens will be at full strength for tonight's AFC championship at Gillette Stadium.

Both linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and running back Bernard Pierce are active after being listed as questionable on the Friday injury report.

No surprises on the inactive list. Safety Omar Brown, defensive tackle Bryan Hall, linebacker Adrian Hamilton, offensive lineman Ramon Harewood, cornerback Asa Jackson, wideout Deonte Thompson and defensive lineman DeAngelo Tyson will not play.

The Patriots have scratched wideout Kamar Aiken, safety Derrick Martin, cornerback Malcolm Williams, offensive lineman Nick McDonald, offensive lineman Marcus Zusevics, defensive end Jake Bequette and defensive lineman Marcus Forston.
