There are very few surprises on the final injury report this week.
The Ravens have listed linebackers Jameel McClain (knee) and Brendon Ayanbadejo (knee) as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans.
McClain said earlier today that he expects to play, while Ayanbadejo is more of a question mark.
Five Ravens are listed as probable: wide receiver Anquan Boldin (knee), linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (concussion), cornerback Jimmy Smith (concussion), guard Marshal Yanda (chest) and safety Tom Zbikowski (concussion).
The Texans went big and listed 18 players as probable for the divisional round contest.
Instead of listing all 18, which could take me a while, I’ll list the starters and one guy who has an awesome name.
Wide receiver Andre Johnson (knee), tight end Owen Daniels (hand/knee), quarterback T.J. Yates (left shoulder), guard Mike Brisiel (ankle), fullback James Casey (knee/foot), nose tackle Shaun Cody (knee), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (hip), center Chris Myers (knee), free safety Troy Nolan (ankle), linebacker Brooks Reed (knee), tackle Eric Winston (calf) and linebacker Mister Alexander (shoulder) are all probable.
Yes, Mister Alexander is the guy who wins my “awesome name” award.
