Ravens veteran defensive end Chris Canty is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Canty didn't practice at all last week because of a knee injury and still started against the Carolina Panthers, but he's regarded as a long shot to play this week.


An illness and a knee injury kept Canty out of practice this week. Only the illness is listed on the injury report, though.

"Depends on who the player is as far as that goes," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said when asked if a player can play without practicing all week. "The more experience a guy has, the less he needs to practice. A younger player needs to practice. That's probably how it works. In the NFL, you have guys who've played for six, eight, 10, 12 years. They know how to play."

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee meniscus) and left tackle Eugene Monroe (arthroscopic knee surgery) are listed as doubtful and could just as well be ruled out.

Jernigan is unable to do most activities right now, including driving, according to a source. Monroe had surgery last week and is expected to miss at least a month, according to a source.

Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is officially questionable with a lingering groin injury, but he practiced on a limited basis Friday and is expected to play Sunday.

Third-string tight end Phillip Supernaw was added to the injury report Friday as questionable with a thigh injury that limited him in practice. Cornerback Chykie Brown (neck) and running back Bernard Pierce (quadriceps) are probable.

The Colts ruled out former Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones and rookie guard Jack Mewhort because of ankle injuries. Jones signed a five-year, $33 million contract with the Colts in March that included $16 million guaranteed.

The Colts listed the following players as probable: linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring), safety Colt Henderson (groin), linebacker Andy Studebaker (hamstring) and guard Hugh Thornton (ankle).
