OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Because the Super Bowl teams were required to release a “final” injury report to simulate players’ availability if the game were being played this weekend, the Ravens listed 19 players as questionable for a game that won’t take place this weekend.
Only two of those players missed any practices over the last two days, making this injury report virtually useless.
Both Baltimore and the San Francisco 49ers will release a new set of injury reports next week, but it appears that linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is the only Ravens player with any real concern at this point as he missed his second straight practice Friday with the ankle injury he’s dealt with since late November.
The Ravens are taking advantage of the extra week of preparation to give Ellerbe some rest as the fourth-year linebacker originally injured the ankle in the Week 12 win over the San Diego Chargers. He missed three games before returning to the lineup in Week 16.
“Any time off is good for you when you’re hurting,” said Ellerbe, who estimated he’d be able to fight through the sore ankle if the Super Bowl were being played this weekend. “I’m going to need a couple more days I’m glad we got two weeks and we’re not playing this Sunday.”
Tight end Dennis Pitta also missed practice on Friday as he’s been hindered by a thigh injury. He worked on a limited basis on Thursday.
The 49ers listed tight end Garrett Celek as questionable while 11 players were designated as probable for a game that won’t take place this weekend.
