Ed Reed, Oher still expected to play Sunday

Safety Ed Reed and left tackle Michael Oher limped out of M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday with injuries, but both players are expected to suit up this weekend in the Ravens' playoff game against the Chiefs.

Reed suffered a rib injury in the Ravens' win over the Bengals on Sunday, but he says he intends to fight through the injury and play against Kansas City this weekend.

"I'm trying not to let it stop me, but it's painful," Reed said. "We'll rehab up until this Sunday. That was a good reason not to be playing Indy, because if we'd have been playing Indy, we'd probably be playing Saturday. That's the only thing, honestly, I was praying for."

Reed said the injury is both a bruise and a muscular issue, but there are no broken bones.

"Both, it's probably both," Reed said. "I didn't see any fracture, so that was a good thing. It's definitely both."

Head coach John Harbaugh said both Reed and Oher, who suffered a sprained right knee against Cincinnati, should be ready to go for the wild card round matchup.

"They seem good," Harbaugh said. "They were out here. Seem like they're moving around OK. I'm always optimistic. I'm an optimistic person."

Oher had his knee heavily wrapped and he was limping around the locker room today.

He declined to talk to reporters about his injury status.
