OWINGS MILLS - Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh declined to speculate on safety Bernard Pollard's status for this weekend's matchup with the New England Patriots.

Pollard (rib contusion) was injured during the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, colliding with teammate Courtney Upshaw while recording a sack of Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.

He left the game and didn't return.

Prior to getting hurt, Pollard had four tackles, the sack and an interception.

"Well, we will see about Bernard," Harbaugh said. "He's got a little rib deal in there. It's just going to come down to him and how he can deal with that pain. He is a pretty tough guy."

The physical 6-foot-1, 225-pound Pollard had 75 tackles, two sacks and an interception last season, his first with the Ravens.
