Wilson, Ellerbe out for the game

The Steelers have all but clinched the AFC North, and now the Ravens top priority is to stay healthy.

Unfortunately, they've already lost two players for the rest of today's game.

Starting cornerback Josh Wilson and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe both suffered shoulder stingers in the first half, and will not return.

Wilson got nicked up when he came up to make a hit on Bengals tight end Chase Coffman. He walked off the field gingerly after getting medical attention for a couple minutes, and is now standing on the sideline with a jacket wrapped around his upper body.

I didn't see how Ellerbe suffered his injury, but he spent a few minutes running sprints on the sideline just before halftime under the close eye of head trainer Bill Tessendorf.

We'll see how much longer the Ravens play their starters today. They don't want anyone else limping off the field and putting their status for the playoffs in jeopardy.
