OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Questions remain over which players the Ravens will elect to rest in the regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, but it’s appearing more likely they will sit defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and right guard Marshal Yanda.
Both players missed their third straight practice on Friday and were listed as questionable on the final injury report of the week. Ngata is listed as having a knee injury and is on the injury report for the first time since late November while Yanda is still recovering from a serious ankle sprain that sidelined him in Week 15.
The Ravens also listed wide receivers Anquan Boldin and Tandon Doss, defensive end Arthur Jones, fullback Vonta Leach, and linebacker Albert McClellan as questionable.
Coach John Harbaugh has maintained he will play to win Sunday’s game like any other regular-season contest as there is still a chance for the Ravens to claim the No. 3 seed in the AFC with a victory and a New England loss. However, the Baltimore coach has also said they will try to be as healthy as possible for the opening round of the playoffs, leading many to believe the Ravens will rest many significant players for at least a portion of the game.
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has also said his team will play to win Sunday’s game despite Cincinnati having no scenario in which they can move up from the No. 6 position in the conference.
“We’ll go in there to win the game,” said Harbaugh, who provided no new injury updates following Friday’s practice. “We’ll have 46 guys active. It’ll be the 46 best guys available to us, like always, and we’ll go in there to play.”
Linebacker Ray Lewis was surprisingly listed as probable for Sunday’s game after Harbaugh said on more than one occasion that the 37-year-old will not play in Week 17. The designation largely stems from Lewis being a full participant in all three practices this week, and there is little reason to believe he will suit up and play against Cincinnati.
Meanwhile, the Bengals ruled kicker Mike Nugent out for Sunday’s game with a right calf injury. He will be replaced by veteran Josh Brown.
Bengals cornerbacks Jason Allen and Terence Newman are both listed as questionable after being limited participants in practice all week.
