OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Making final preparations for their prime-time battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens listed tight end Owen Daniels, defensive end Chris Canty, and right guard Marshal Yanda as questionable for Sunday’s game.
Daniels practiced Friday after he received Thursday off and is rapidly working his way back from last week’s cleanup procedure on his left knee. The veteran tight end was a limited participant on Wednesday after missing last week’s game in Cincinnati, but he was listed as a full participant for Friday’s workout.
Head coach John Harbaugh said a decision on Daniels likely won’t be made until Sunday evening, but he painted an optimistic picture for Yanda, who returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday and worked fully on Friday. Yanda injured his knee in Week 8, but he returned to play in the 27-24 loss to the Bengals.
“It’ll probably be a game-time [decision] for Owen, realistically, coming off knee surgery,” Harbaugh said. “Yanda practiced [Friday]. We’ll see how the knee reacts, but he’s a tough guy.”
Cornerback Jimmy Smith (foot) and wide receiver Michael Campanaro (hamstring) were the only players absent from Friday’s practice as both were officially ruled out. Harbaugh said Monday that Smith would miss a few weeks with a mid-foot sprain, and the fourth-year cornerback is currently using crutches with his left foot in a protective boot.
Canty was a full participant all week and appears on track to make his return after a four-game absence due to surgery to address an infection in his wrist.
“Overall, I feel good; I feel healthy,” said Canty, who downplayed conditioning being a concern after a month-long layoff. “I think the coaches think I’m coming along nicely. We’ll see where we’re at, and they’ll evaluate things. Hopefully, I’ll have an opportunity to help this team win come Sunday.”
Running back Justin Forsett (ankle) and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (shin) were listed as probable for Sunday’s game after practicing for a second straight day. Also listed as probable was linebacker Terrell Suggs, who missed two practices this week before returning to the field on Friday.
Harbaugh said the veteran pass-rusher looked “fine” after some rest earlier in the week.
Meanwhile, the Steelers officially ruled out cornerback Ike Taylor and safety Ross Ventrone. Taylor had practiced on a limited basis this week, but Pittsburgh is trying to be cautious after he suffered a broken forearm in late September.
All other players listed on Pittsburgh’s injury report were listed as probable.
The referee for Sunday night’s game will be Bill Vinovich.
The forecast for Heinz Field on Sunday night calls for temperatures dipping into the 30s, but winds should dissipate in time for the 8:30 p.m. kickoff and there is only a 10 percent chance of precipitation.
Below is the final injury report for Sunday’s game:
BALTIMORE
OUT: WR Michael Campanaro (thigh), CB Jimmy Smith (foot)
QUESTIONABLE: DE Chris Canty (wrist), TE Owen Daniels (knee), G Marshal Yanda (knee)
PROBABLE: RB Justin Forsett (ankle), DT Haloti Ngata (shin), LB Terrell Suggs (neck), CB Lardarius Webb (non-injury)
PITTSBURGH
OUT: CB Ike Taylor (forearm), S Ross Ventrone (hamstring)
PROBABLE: T Marcus Gilbert (concussion), DE Brett Keisel (non-injury), DT Steve McLendon (shoulder), TE Heath Miller (non-injury), S Michael Mitchell (non-injury), S Troy Polamalu (non-injury), LB Ryan Shazier (knee), TE Matt Spaeth (hamstring), S Shamarko Thomas (hamstring)
