21 Ravens on injury report

AP

The Patriots are surprisingly healthy for Sunday’s AFC title game, but for the players already on injured reserve (like, you know, “Gonk“).

The Ravens are less healthy, but the bulk of their injured players are listed as probable.

Cornerback Asa Jackson is out with a thigh injury, and four Ravens are questionable:  linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle/back), fullback Vonta Leach (knee/ankle), running back Bernard Pierce (knee), and receiver David Reed (thigh).

The rest — all 16 of them — are probable.

They are running back Anthony Allen (head), receiver Anquan Boldin (shoulder), cornerback Chykie Brown (shoulder), defensive tackle Terrence Cody (ankle), guard Gino Gradkowski (head), defensive tackle Arthur Jones (thigh/knee), linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps), linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder), defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee), safety Bernard Pollard (chest), safety Ed Reed (shoulder), cornerback Jimmy Smith (abdominal), receiver Torrey Smith (back), linebacker Terrell Suggs (achilles/bicep), and guard Marshal Yanda (shoulder).

The Ravens have been at times overlisting injured players since being fined for not disclosing that Reed had a shoulder injury, after Reed talked publicly about having one.  The problem is that, when so many are listed as injured, it’s hard to know who really is.

  1. It will be tremendously entertaining to watch the Ravens get routed by the Patriots in front of forty million viewers.

  2. I hope the ravens d knock ugg boy right out of his uggs then smack woodhead and welker in their faces with the uggs !

  3. The NFL can’t have it both ways. You want to fine Baltimore for not listing a guy with nicks and bruises?

    This is what you end up with.

    Literally every single player this weekend is hurt somehow. The injury report at this stage of the game is just silly.

  4. I’m a Pats fan but good on ya, Harbaugh. Any coach who fights the idiocy of the injury report will always get kudos from me.

    Not likely. The Patriots don’t play that well in AFC title games. Brady’s numbers are below average for him, as in more picks than TDs and a passer rating in the 80s.

    They got lucky against the Steelers in 2002. They struggled mightily against a Chargers team they routed earlier in the year in 2007 and LT was injured. They blew a huge lead to the Colts in 2006. And so on…

    And that young Patriots defense just isn’t reliable enough yet.

    This game will be close. Take the points.

  6. Not likely. The Patriots don’t play that well in AFC title games.

    Scoreboard. Pats are 7-1 in AFC Championship games.

  7. ” The Patriots don’t play that well in AFC title games.”

    Are you kidding me? The Pats are 7-1 in title games, 4-0 at home. How many title games have the Ravens won in the last decade? …..
    “…crickets”

  8. And this is good old Bostom,
    The home of the bean and the cod,
    Where the Lowells talk only to Cabots,
    And Menino’s an embarrassing fraud.

  9. “So the Patriots are lining up their “we didn’t have Gronk!” excuse when they lose tomorrow?”

    Since the Pats don’t ever make that kind of excuse the answer would be no, they’re not.

  10. Steeler fans are desperately trying to save face. It’s so funny. Ravens will win, and the haters will have to come up with a new excuse.

  11. Harbie and Belichik should have listed their entire rosters as probable. That would have been a good laugh…

  12. It’s time for the BIG PAYBACK Patriot fans. You know very well the bullies from baltimore can and will win in Gillette stadium. Tonight go home and re-watch the 09 playoff game because that’s what’s going down Sunday Night!

  13. seriously another steeler troll comes along and wants to bash us, how is it at home sitting watching the playoffs?

  14. What’s the logical answer as to why the Pats stadium is in the middle of nowhere? Been to Boston, saw plenty of real estate that could have been knocked down.

    Glad to see someone else pointing out the insanity of requiring competitors to provide intelligence to their opponents. Once upon a time, teams made great efforts to keep this information under wraps so opposing coaches couldn’t game plan around injured players. But that made it more difficult for bookmakers to set their odds. It’s pretty hypocritical for the NFL to have such stiff rules against players and owners being connected to gaming … while the league puts facilitating oddsmakers ahead of facilitating competition.

  16. @jamltimore,

    Of course Balt can win. These teams always play each other tough, since 07. The only time that one team was vastly superior to the other was that playoff game in 09 when your vastly superior team won. I don’t think there’s any way this game is a repeat performance or a blowout by either team. They’re just too evenly matched.

  17. Patriots are still making excuses for losing to the 49ers: “We woulda eazuly beat dem if Groink was playan!!! Weda beat ’em wicked baaaad” (in irritating Boston accent).

    at least they have the chance to be there! can you even remember the last time your team played football???

  19. They’re just too evenly matched

    Earlier this was true.

    The Pats have an actual NFL secondary now.

  20. Tom Brady in AFCCG at Gillette: 4-0

    Joe Flacco in AFCCG at Gillette: 0-1

    The Ray Lewis retirement party will be underway right around 10PM in Foxboro, MA.

    Pats vs. 49ers in the Super Bowl with a chance for the Pats to redeem themselves for an ugly in-season loss.

  21. @TheWizard.

    Yes, they are improved. But they still gave up close to 900 more passing yards than the Ravens did while allowing only 13 fewer points all season. This is the most adversity I have ever watched the Ravens defense weather in a season. They also did all of this largely without their shutdown corner Webb (who is the best DB on both of these teams) and Cary Williams getting beaten like a drum most of the year. In fact , Williams and Reed are the only two Raven defenders who even started all 16 games this year. It

    It should be another close classic between these two great teams. All respect in the world to Belichick and his crew but all of the fans who think Talib is the biggest change in this matchup are going to be disappointed tomorrow.

  22. Obviously comments don’t provide the outcome, ask Denver. Talib slow he better be on boldin. Wilfork needs to have big game. The Ravens are going to press like belllichick would. Go Ravens

    The Patriots record in AFC Title Games is 6-1. Blowouts are few because they’re playing the other best team in the conference.

  24. An injury report is to appease gamblers and fantasy football geeks. Pretty simple. No need to be so paranoid.

  25. Really can’t stand either team. I’m trying to decide which one I hate the least so I have someone to pull for.

    Uh in what fantasy world ?

    Maybe some fans have said that but not a single Patriot player or coach has.

  27. Nice job Ravens… Bet they all play… Nothing would make me happier than the Ravens embarrassing the Patriots… I hope Brady gets sacked into next Tuesday…

  28. Don’t care who wins..respect both teams…Pats fans are more arrogant but can speak in complete sentences and respect history. Also they have more than one Super Bowl.

  29. The grubs and worms are really wriggling out of the dirt right now. Lots of hate going on.

    One of these teams will win and probably win the SB. And you dummies will keep on hating.

  30. All I’m saying is that to arbitrarily dismiss this Ravens team is folly. They are a quality organization. And if their special teams shows up last week, they send Peyton Manning and a good Broncos team playing at home packing easily. I have no idea who will win. I just think the black and purple will fare far better than what the line reflects.

    Good point, Deb. And well said.

  31. Haters hating so bad no one pointed out it is spelled Gronk not Gonk. Missing ‘da “r”.

    Wonder if Steeler fans hating on the Ravens in here realize how funny it is to see you talking smack for the Pats.

    Go Ravens!

  32. looking forward to a great matchup between two of the top franchises in the league. hoping like crazy the ravens can break on through and get to their second super bowl. and to the good steeler fans that post i thank you for your objectivity. lets go ravens!!

  33. This is true henry53. What is also true is that #4 seeds are 6-1 in conference championship games since 1990, including the #4 seeded 2000 Ravens. Both sides can go back and forth with previous seasons’ stats, it will have zero effect on who wins the game tomorrow.
