I was just handed the inactive list for today's game, and it revealed mostly good news for Ravens fans. Center Matt Birk, cornerback Chris Carr and running back Ray Rice will all suit up today. The biggest omission from the active roster was kick returner David Reed, but it was no surprise.
We'll see how Birk, Carr and Rice hold up. Chris Chester would play center if Birk's injury flares up. Fabian Washington might see more snaps. And we all know what Willis McGahee can do.
Here are the Ravens' inactives: WR David Reed, S Tom Zbikowski, LB Jason Phillips, DT Arthur Jones, OL Bryan Mattison, TE Davon Drew, TE Dennis Pitta, DT Lamar Divens
More good news for the Ravens: Steelers DE Aaron Smith still isn't healthy enough to suit up.
Here are the Steelers' inactives: QB Charlie Batch (3rd QB), RB Jonathan Dwyer, CB Crezdon Butler, OT Chris Scott, OT Tony Hills, DT Steve McLendon, DE Aaron Smith, OLB Jason Worilds
