Good News Ravens fans. Both players injured in Sundays emotional 16-13 win over the Chargers are expected to play this Sunday against the rival Steelers and both injuries are considered very minor.

Dickson suffered a bruised knee, the only question with him would be if he were unable to run full speed of jump or cut etc. without hurting himself. i.e. would he help or hurt the team when he was on the field. Early indication is that barring anything unforeseen he should be fine for Sunday and he will keep the Ravens completely stocked with pass catching talent.

Elerbe had his ankle rolled up in a pile, his injury was much more concerning for the Ravens because he was the starter and they are already perilously thin at ILB. I believe a big reason for David Reed being promoted to the active roster today was to keep Brenden Ayenbedejo off special teams so the Ravens don’t suffer another ILB injury. Elerbe categorized his injury as being “not that serious” and said he should play Sunday.
