The following players are probable for Baltimore: wide receiver Anquan Boldin (knee), nose guard Terrence Cody (elbow), cornerback Corey Graham (stomach virus), tight end Dennis Pitta (neck), safety Bernard Pollard (rib contusion), safety Ed Reed (torn labrum in his shoulder), wide receiver Torrey Smith (thigh) and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (Achilles tendon).

McPhee has missed the past four games with Jones starting in his place.

Boldin fined, Pollard isn't

Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin was fined $7,875 for his unnecessary roughness penalty against the San Diego Chargers, according to NFL spokesman Corry Rush.

While Boldin wasn't fined for his crushing, legal block on Chargers safety Eric Weddle on Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice's dramatic 4th-and-29 conversion, he was punished for a personal foul committed in the fourth quarter.

Boldin threw Chargers cornerback Marcus Gilchrist to the ground and shoved him in the back, drawing the penalty.

Meanwhile, strong safety Bernard Pollard wasn't fined for his penalty after being flagged for a helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless receiver for his collision with Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander.

Replays showed that Pollard actually led with his shoulder, but the penalty gave the Chargers a first down and a Nick Novak field goal.

"I know how to play football," Pollard said. "When I'm right, I'm right."

Ogden, Modell semifinalists for Hall

Retired Ravens offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and the late former majority owner Art Modell are among the 27 semifinalists up for consideration for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013.

The first draft pick in franchise history prior to the Ravens' inaugural season in 1996, Ogden joins the following five first-year candidates: offensive lineman Larry Allen, kicker Morten Anderson, safety John Lynch, defensive tackle Warren Sapp and defensive end Michael Strahan.

The Ravens won a Super Bowl with Modell, who passed away on Sept. 6, as their primary owner following the 2000 season.

Modell later sold his majority interest to Anne Arundel County businessman Steve Bisciotti. The controversial move of the Cleveland Browns to Maryland has been a major obstacle to Modell's candidacy despite his many contributions to the game, including the creation of Monday Night Football.

Ogden was regarded as the best left offensive tackle in his era, stonewalling pass rushers with his nimble feet and massive 6-foot-9, 340-pound frame.

Ogden is considered a lock to make the Hall of Fame as a first-ballot candidate, but Modell faces a more difficult road to induction.

The last time Modell was a finalist was in 2001. He has been a semifinalist the past four years.

End zone

The Ravens' ambition isn't confined to trying to repeat as AFC North champions. They're angling toward the Super Bowl, which will be played in New Orleans at the Louisiana Superdome. "We know where we want to go: Louisiana is where our eyes are," Pollard said. "That's in our eyesight. I would be lying if I said it wasn't." ... The Steelers also ruled out outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley (ankle), Leftwich and offensive tackle Mike Adams (ankle). Pittsburgh gets back two Pro Bowl selections in wide receiver Antonio Brown and safety Troy Polamalu from injuries this weekend.
