OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens only listed one player as much as questionable on their final injury report of the week as defensive end Chris Canty’s status remains up in the air.
The veteran did not practice all week as he continues to deal with an ankle injury. Canty told reporters Wednesday that he wasn’t concerned about his status for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans, but the Ravens would likely use reserve Lawrence Guy in his place at the 5-technique defensive end spot should he not be able to play.
John Harbaugh acknowledged Canty has progressed while resting this week, but the head coach wouldn’t bite when asked if he’d call the defensive lineman a “game-time decision.”
“I wouldn’t call it anything,” the seventh-year head coach said.
Eight other Ravens players were listed as probable on the final injury report as linebacker Terrell Suggs was the only new name added. The 2011 Defensive Player of the Year received the day off as head coach John Harbaugh has done for several Fridays now.
Houston’s injury report was gloomier as tight end Garrett Graham was ruled out due to a high ankle sprain. Second-year wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is questionable and considered a game-time decision to play against the Ravens after not practicing all week.
Seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson (concussion) has been officially cleared and is listed as probable after missing last Sunday’s game against Indianapolis.
Texans coach Bill O’Brien still hasn’t named his starting quarterback for Sunday’s game publicly, but reports from Houston indicate Case Keenum is expected to be under center instead of Thad Lewis. A member of the St. Louis Rams practice squad before being re-signed by the Texans on Monday, Keenum made eight starts last season, throwing nine touchdowns and six interceptions while failing to win a game.
Keenum spent the entire offseason and preseason learning O’Brien’s system, giving him a mental edge over Lewis, who was only signed by the Texans after Ryan Mallett suffered a season-ending pectoral injury late last month.
The University of Houston product will become the fourth quarterback to play for the Texans this season, but the Ravens shouldn’t sleep on his aggressive nature. In his first three starts against Kansas City, Indianapolis, and Arizona last year, Keenum threw for 822 yards, seven touchdowns, and no interceptions, showing he’s capable of playing well in small sample sizes.
The referee for Sunday’s game will be Walt Coleman.
It’s unclear whether the NRG Stadium roof will be open or closed for Sunday’s game, but Weather.com is calling for partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 60s and light winds up to five miles per hour in Houston.
Below is the final injury report of the week:
BALTIMORE
QUESTIONABLE: DE Chris Canty (ankle)
PROBABLE: TE Owen Daniels (non-injury), S Will Hill (non-injury), WR Jacoby Jones (illness), CB Anthony Levine (ankle), G Kelechi Osemele (non-injury), RB Bernard Pierce (back), LB Daryl Smith (non-injury), LB Terrell Suggs (non-injury)
HOUSTON
OUT: TE Garrett Graham (ankle), LB Mike Mohamed (concussion), QB Tom Savage (knee), G Xavier Su’a-Filo (back)
QUESTIONABLE: WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle)
PROBABLE: T Tyson Clabo (foot), LB Brian Cushing (ankle), LB Akeem Dent (neck), RB Arian Foster (hip), CB Kareem Jackson (knee), WR Andre Johnson (concussion), CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle), LB Whitney Mercilus (back), WR DeVier Posey (calf), LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee)
