The final injury report before Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns is due out later today, but it appears to be little more than a formality that four Ravens won't play.

Wide receivers Steve Smith Sr. (back) and Breshad Perriman (knee), tight end Crockett Gillmore (calf) and defensive end Chris Canty (calf) weren't on the field Friday, meaning that they didn't practice all week.

It was widely expected that Smith, who is dealing with microfractures in his back, wouldn't play against the Browns. Ravens coach John Harbaugh initially ruled him out during a televised interview late last week and offensive coordinator Marc Trestman did the same while speaking to reporters yesterday.

As for Gillmore and Canty, Harbaugh said Monday that they had a chance to play against the Browns. However, that now appears unlikely.

It will mark the third straight game Canty has missed, and the second straight for Gillmore. Lawrence Guy is expected to start for Canty, while rookies Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle will fill in for Gillmore.

Reserve outside linebacker and core special teamer Albert McClellan (abdomen) returned to practice today after sitting out Thursday. Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) also practiced for a second straight day although he appeared to be limited.
