Ravens starting inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe characterized his status as a last-minute decision heading into Sunday's kickoff against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ellerbe was dressed out at practice Friday after missing the previous two days due to a right foot and ankle injury suffered against the San Diego Chargers.
"We'll see how it feels," Ellerbe said. "It's going to be a game-time. I'm getting better every day."
Ellerbe said the swelling has gone down, but indicated he didn't do much at practice Friday.
"I'm ready to go," Ellerbe said. "It went slow. I didn't do nothing today. .. The swelling, they say it's looking good. It's just the strength. I didn't turn it, somebody fell on it. I can't stop that."
Injured linebacker Ray Lewis (torn right triceps) also was not practicing. On injured reserve with a designation to return, Lewis was eligible to start practicing yesterday. However, he's not allowed to play again until Dec. 16 against the Denver Broncos.
