Ravens cornerback Chris Carr expressed optimism that he will be able to play in Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite a thigh injury.
But Carr did not practice Thursday and conceded that his status will be determined during pre-game warmups.
"If I don't feel good, then I won't go," he said. "But I feel like I will feel well enough on Saturday. Having today off and then tomorrow and the next day, and we don't play until 4:30. So that's good. So I feel like I'll feel good after that."Carr, who had been limited in practice on Wednesday, declined to get into any specifics about the injury, including when it first occurred. But he said the injury hasn't prevented him from preparing off-the-field to play against the Steelers.
"It's one of those things where you think you're going to be fine and it doesn't seem too serious," Carr said. "I felt like I'm going to be able to play Saturday. But with certain injuries, you never know exactly how you're going to feel."
Ravens coach John Harbaugh addressed Carr's status by saying, "He'll play." Then, Harbaugh's tone became increasingly confrontational. . "We're not going injuries right now, so don't even try," Harbaugh said. "I'm serious. I'm not interested in talking about any of that."
