17 Ravens listed as probable, Broncos rule out Tracy Porter

DENVER -- — Although the Ravens' final injury report of the week remains a lengthy one, the AFC North champions are relatively healthy heading into Saturday's AFC divisional-round playoff game against the Denver Broncos.

Seventeen Ravens are listed as probable.


That includes rookie running back Bernard Pierce, who was upgraded to full participation after being limited Thursday with a minor knee injury. He didn't practice at all Wednesday.

"Yeah, it feels good," said Pierce, who rushed for 103 yards during a 24-9 AFC wild-card victory over the Indianapolis Colts. "I was a little banged-up and had to take some time off. I had to come back strong and make sure when I came back it wasn't going to be a not-wise decision.


"The worst thing I could do is come back and I'm not feeling good and do something stupid on the field and cost us a game. I would be devastated."

Also listed as probable: wide receiver Anquan Boldin (bruised left shoulder), wide receiver Tandon Doss (high-ankle sprain), outside linebacker Adrian Hamilton (illness), middle linebacker Ray Lewis (right triceps surgery), outside linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder), defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (sprained right knee), strong safety Bernard Pollard (ribs), free safety Ed Reed (torn shoulder labrum), cornerback Jimmy Smith (sports hernia surgery), outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (right Achilles, torn right biceps), wide receiver David Reed (thigh), wide receiver Torrey Smith (back) and offensive guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder).

"Yeah, the ankle is coming along," Doss said. "Each week, it's getting better. It takes time."

Ellerbe, Leach, Pierce, David Reed and Torrey Smith were limited Friday.

Earlier Friday, the Ravens placed left offensive guard Jah Reid on injured reserve with a toe injury. He was replaced on the active roster by rookie cornerback Asa Jackson, who has returned from a four-game suspension for violating the NFL performance-enhancing drug policy due to unauthorized usage of Adderall.

The top-seeded Broncos ruled out cornerback Tracy Porter due to a concussion.

Former Ravens strong safety Jim Leonhard (thigh) and former Ravens wide receiver Matt Willis (knee) are probable as well as safety Mike Adams (knee), offensive tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder), offensive tackle Orlando Franklin (knee), wide receiver-kick returner Trindon Holliday (ankle) and offensive guard Chris Kuper (ankle.).
