Owen Daniels returns, Arthur Brown active for first time this season

Ravens tight end Owen Daniels is active Sunday night against the Steelers.

PITTSBURGH — Ravens tight end Owen Daniels is active Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field after he missed last week's game because he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

Daniels, who was out for the Ravens' loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last week at Paul Brown Stadium, will likely divide the snaps with rookie tight end Crockett Gillmore, who started in place of him against the Bengals and caught two passes.


The Ravens scratched rookie safety Terrence Brooks one game after the third-round draft pick was largely responsible for allowing a 53-yard reception to Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu that set up quarterback Andy Dalton's game-winning touchdown run.

Defensive end Chris Canty is active for the first time since undergoing wrist surgery to remove a staph infection the week of the Ravens' loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Canty missed the past four games.


Running back Bernard Pierce is active after he was a healthy scratch against the Bengals, and guard Marshal Yanda is active after being listed as questionable with a left knee injury.

Meanwhile, 2013 second-round linebacker Arthur Brown is active for the first time this season after being a healthy scratch for the first eight games. Brown, who will primarily play on special teams, replaces rookie linebacker Zach Orr, who has one special teams tackle and several penalties.

The Ravens also scratched offensive linemen Jah Reid and Gino Gradkowski, cornerback Jimmy Smith, who's on crutches and in a protective boot and expected to miss several weeks with a sprained left foot, rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro (River Hill) and Orr.

The Steelers deactivated cornerback Ike Taylor with a broken forearm, quarterback Landry Jones, wide receiver Justin Brown, safety Ross Ventone, cornerback B.W. Webb, defensive lineman Daniel McCullers and offensive lineman Chris Hubbard.
