All Hands on Deck vs Texans


Recommended Posts

Good news. Everyone that was hurting after the Cinci game, and there were plenty, will be back for the playoff game. The Ravens will be at full strength thanks to the bye


The Ravens came out of the regular season bruised and hobbled.


A number of players were dealing with injuries after the regular-season finale in Cincinnati, but then they had a bye week to rest and get healthy.

It appears to have worked wonders.

“From an injury perspective, we look good,” Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh said Monday. “We anticipate everybody playing in the game.”

Two of the players who went down with injuries in the Cincinnati game were linebackers Jameel McClain and Brendon Ayanbadejo, and they are expected to return to practice this week.

“Jameel and Brendon are working through their knee issues, they should be good, we’ll see how they practice,” Harbaugh said.

Right guard Marshal Yanda played through rib and thigh contusions against the Bengals, and he is expected to be ready to play Sunday against the Texans.

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin missed the final two regular-season games after having surgery to repair a slightly torn meniscus, but he said last week that “this is probably the best I’ve felt all year.”

“He looks fine,” Harbaugh said. “He should be 100 percent.”

Cornerback Jimmy Smith and safety Tom Zbikowski both suffered concussions in the game against Cincinnati, and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe was inactive against the Bengals because of a concussion he sustained the previous week against Cleveland.

They all appear to be working back into the lineup.

Great news.

This can be a big edge if the Ravens can also have more life and speed in their legs. Speed kills in the playoffs.


Grubbs and defensive tackle Arthur Jones were happy to see the Steelers exit the playoffs.


“It was priceless to see the look on their faces,” Grubbs said of the Steelers. “I’m sure they went into that game expecting to win, but the outcome was a lot different.”
