Baltimore Ravens injury report: Week 4 vs. Steelers
The Baltimore Ravens are about to do battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Here is a look at the injury report:
Baltimore Ravens listed as out:
- Willie Henry
- Anthony Averett
Baltimore Ravens listed as questionable:
- Brandon Carr
- Hayden Hurst
- C.J. Mosley
- Anthony Levine Sr.
- Michael Pierce
- Ronnie Stanley
- Terrell Suggs
I wouldn’t worry about Terrell Suggs and Ronnie Stanley. Questionable often means probable and they would have to be hurting bad to miss the first game against the Steelers. Stanley played with a brace on his arm against the Broncos, and he played well.
The good news is that it looks likely that C.J. Mosley plays in this game. The Ravens defense looked impressive without Mosley against the Broncos, but having their star linebacker is incredibly important. Mosley is the leader of the defense and his leaving the game with an injuyry was felt heavily against the Cincinnati Bengals. Mosley and Kenny Young have a chance to be a great combination. Young filled in for Mosley last week, and there is little doubt that he will start next to number 57 this week. The Ravens have a lot of speed at the linebacker positions and that with Tony Jefferson helping out should help the Ravens slow down Jesse James and Vance McDonald.
Hayden Hurst may or may not play in this game. It’s hard to know what to expect from Hurst if he does get some playing time in this game, as he has missed all three games thus far. Mark Andrews has become a big play-maker for the Ravens in the past two weeks. The combination of a healthy and ready to go Hurst and Andrews could give the Steelers trouble. The Steelers have trouble covering tight ends this season.
Just about everybody on the questionable list is expected to play in this game. The Ravens desperately need Brandon Carr in this game. Even if Antonio Brown is shadowed by Marlon Humphrey, Carr will have a lot of work to do in this game.
Overall, the Ravens go into their battle with the Steelers ready to roll. It’s no promise that Mosley plays, but it is leaning that way. The Ravens defense has a tough test against the Steelers and they need Mosley to win this one. One way or another this game is huge for both teams.
