Linebackers Jameel McClain and Brendon Ayanbadejo, who were considered game-time decisions for today's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Houston Texans, will both play today.

McClain (knee sprain) and Ayanbadejo (quad) were both limited participants in practice all week. However, they both looked mobile during pregame workouts, and did enough to convince the coaching staff that they are ready to go.

The only surprise inactive was cornerback Chris Carr who wasn't on the injury report all week. Carr was inactive for seven games during the regular season with hamstring and back injuries.

The Ravens' other inactives are wide receiver Tandon Doss, cornerback Chykie Brown, running back Anthony Allen, linebackers Josh Bynes and Sergio Kindle, and guard/center Justin Boren. Bynes was signed off the Ravens' practice squad yesterday.

The Texans' inactives are quarterback Jeff Garcia, wide receiver Jeff Maehl, cornerback Brandon Harris, free safety Troy Nolan, guard Thomas Austin, tackle Andrew Gardner and tight end Garrett Graham.
