When the Steelers travel to Baltimore on Thursday night, they won’t have nose tackle Steve McLendon. And they may not have linebacker LaMarr Woodley.
McLendon is officially out for the Thanksgiving night showdown, with an ankle injury. Coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that McLendon likely would miss the game.
Woodley, who has missed the last two games, is doubtful with a calf injury.
The good news is that safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle) and defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) are probable to play. Each has missed the last two games.
Also probable are tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related), and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring).
The Ravens have a short injury list. Safety Brynden Trawick (ankle) is out, and defensive end Chris Canty (shoulder) is probable.
