Ravens likely to play without Rice

Rookie running back Ray Rice is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers even though coach John Harbaugh called him a game-time decision after practice today. "He's definitely getting better, moving around a lot better," Harbaugh said of Rice, who has not practiced this week.

Wide receiver Marcus Maxwell (hip) is also doubtful.

Listed as probable are wide receivers Derrick Mason (dislocated left shoulder), Mark Clayton (knee) and Yamon Figurs (bruised left knee), safeties Ed Reed (hamstring) and Jim Leonhard (illness), cornerback Samari Rolle (thigh), offensive tackle Jared Gaither (right shoulder), rookie guard David Hale (left ankle) and kicker Matt Stover (sprained right ankle).

Mason, Stover, Leonhard and Gaither were limited in practice, while Reed, Rolle, Clayton, Figurs and Hale fully participated.

Pittsburgh ruled out defensive end Brett Keisel (sprained medial collateral ligament in left knee) and offensive tackle Marvel Smith (back). Two defensive starters in strong safety Troy Polamalu (calf) and defensive end James Harrison (knee) are probable.
