The Ravens may be at their healthiest in a long time as 19 players are listed as probable for Sunday’s AFC wild-card playoff contest against the Indianapolis Colts.
Eight players who practiced on a limited basis Friday are among those listed as probable. They are running backs Bernard Pierce (ankle) and Anthony Allen (head), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee), fullback Vonta Leach (sprained right ankle), right guard Marshal Yanda (sprained right ankle), defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), cornerback Chris Johnson (thigh) and tight end Billy Bajema (concussion).
Leach sat out Thursday’s session. The other seven were limited for the third straight day.
Ten players who fully participated all three days are also probable. They are inside linebackers Ray Lewis (torn right triceps) and Dannell Ellerbe (sprained right ankle), outside linebackers Terrell Suggs (torn right biceps) and Albert McClellan (shoulder/thigh), wide receivers Anquan Boldin (bruised left shoulder) and Torrey Smith (knee), free safety Ed Reed (shoulder), right tackle Kelechi Osemele (knee), defensive end Arthur Jones (thigh) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (sports hernia).
Three players who were limited all week are questionable. They are strong safety Bernard Pollard (ribs), right guard Jah Reid (toe) and wide receiver Tandon Doss (ankle).
Indianapolis ruled out starting left guard Joe Reitz (concussion), who did not practice all week. Jeff Linkenbach, who started four games at left guard earlier in the season, is listed as Reitz’s backup.
Three starters in nose tackle Antonio Johnson (ankle), right tackle Winston Justice (shoulder) and strong safety Tom Zbikowski (knee)are listed as questionable. All three fully participated in Friday’s practice.
Six starters are probable. They are outside linebackers Dwight Freeney (non-injury reasons) and Robert Mathis (non-injury reasons), defensive end Cory Redding (quad), inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (thumb), rookie quarterback Andrew Luck (knee) and center Samson Satele (ankle).Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
