The Ravens are much healthier going into their Divisional Round game with the Steelers than they were at this time last week, but they still list three players as questionable for tomorrow’s game at Pittsburgh, including two starters.
Carr said yesterday that he hopes to be able to play, but will need to have a good pregame workout to be cleared to go. He returned to practice today in a limited capacity after sitting out yesterday’s session. Birk also returned to practice and took part in the team walkthrough today, although he also was limited. He’s been given days off to rest his aching knee the last couple weeks, and should be able to play tomorrow.
Zbikowski told me that he feels healthy enough to suit up against Pittsburgh after missing the last four games with a bulging disc in his back, but it will all depend on the numbers game with who the coaches want to activate.
For the Steelers, starting defensive end Aaron Smith (triceps) is doubtful for tomorrow’s game.
