Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor has been ruled out for the remainder of today's game with a right ankle injury.

Taylor got hurt in the first quarter breaking up a long Joe Flacco pass intended for wide receiver Torrey Smith.

He's already in an ankle boot on the sidelines and has his shoulder pads off.

Taylor limited Smith to one catch for 7 yards in the first meeting at Heinz Field.

The Ravens went after his replacement, Cortez Allen, who was beat by Anquan Boldin for a 28-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter.

Allen also committed a 30-yard defensive pass interference penalty on that drive to set up the Ravens' lone touchdown of the game.
