The Ravens announced that middle linebacker C.J. Mosley did not practice Wednesday because of a neck problem. Mosley had been dealing with a sprained right ankle, but his neck has apparently become the bigger problem.
Mosley, who has also battled stingers, did not directly address his most recent injury before Sunday night’s game at the AFC North-leading Pittsburgh Steelers.
“I feel like it’s Week 14,” he said. “So as long as I’m ready by Sunday, that’s all that will matter.”
Mosley is tied for fifth in the NFL in tackles with 101. He also has two interceptions, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one sack. If he cannot play Sunday, Kamalei Correa would presumably start in Mosley’s place.
Outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith did not participate because of a shoulder ailment. If Smith, who has 17 tackles and 1½ sacks, is unavailable, rookie Tim Williams could move up the depth chart to back up starter Terrell Suggs.
Pittsburgh practiced Wednesday without linebackers Ryan Shazier (spinal bruise) and Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) and cornerback Joe Haden (broken left fibula). Starting free safety Mike Mitchell (ankle) participated fully.
