Steelers Ravens Week 9 Practice Injury Report – Thursday

Steelers Ravens Week 9 Practice Injury ReportThe Steelers wrapped up their second practice of the week on Thursday in preparation for their Sunday night game at Heinz Field versus the Baltimore Ravens. The Thursday injury report is out and it shows that linebackers James Farrior (calf), James Harrison (eye) and LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) all were limited Thursday for a second straight day. Farrior said he pushed himself a bit harder today and that it felt pretty good. He says he will try to do even more tomorrow before his status is decided. Harrison and Woodley are still not ready to rule themselves out just yet either. Guard Doug Legursky (toe) was once again out on Thursday and has already been ruled out for Sunday night. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was also not at practice once again as he is back home with his family following the death of his mother. His status is in question for Sunday night as the funeral for his mother is Saturday. Wide receiver Hines Ward (ankle) and tackle Jonathan Scott (ankle) were also limited for a second straight day. Ward said on Wednesday he expects to play. Linebacker Jason Worilds (quad) and nose tackle Chris Hoke (neck) practiced fully once again and neither have shown up on the injury report this week.

For the Ravens on Thursday, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (thigh), wide receiver Lee Evans (ankle) and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (thigh) all did not practice for a second straight day. Wide receiver David Reed (knee) was limited Thursday after not working on Wednesday. Guard Ben Grubbs (toe), cornerback Danny Gorrer (thigh), center Matt Birk (neck) and running back Anthony Allen (hamstring) were all limited Thursday for a second straight day. Cornerback Chykie Brown was added to the injury report as limited. Despite missing two practices, Ngata is expected to play Sunday night and Grubbs is expected to return to the starting line-up at left guard.

    Thank God Hokey and Worilds should be GTG … if Woodley or Harrison can’t go, do you think they would move Timmons back inside and start Carter and Worilds outside in base packages?

    Something tells me all is not well with Ngata. He has not played well last two games, this injury maybe more than they are making out…

    think there’s anything to suggs imploring he wants hines to instead of Brown? might almost be better to have brown in more and stretch out that defense, when hines is in they know he’s not goin past the 10 unless the play breaks down…man I hope either woodly or harrison play, not so much as rushers but as run stoppers, ravens are going to pound it until they prove they can stop them

    They have more depth and trust at ILB right now so I’d expect Timmons and Worilds to line up at OLB with Foote/Sylvester at ILB unless Farrior can go. Ideally, either Harrison or Woodley is a go and its all moot, but I’d expect Timmons to remain an OLB until Woodley and Harrison are healthy.
