Releasing their final injury report ahead of Saturday’s divisional round game against the Denver Broncos, the Ravens listed 17 players no worse than probable as they appear healthier than they’ve been since the early portion of the season.
Running back Bernard Pierce, fullback Vonta Leach, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, and wide receivers Torrey Smith and David Reed all practiced on a limited basis on Friday, but each player was designated as probable against Denver. Pierce and Leach returned to the practice field on a limited basis Thursday after failing to participate in Wednesday’s workout.
Earlier Friday, the Ravens placed offensive lineman Jah Reid (toe) on injured reserve and activated cornerback Asa Jackson from the reserved-suspended list.
Coach John Harbaugh anticipated an optimistic injury report when speaking to reporters following Thursday’s practice, which was the final open day of the week for the media in Owings Mills.
“It’s encouraging to have all our guys,” Harbaugh said. “As I pointed out earlier, we’re not anticipating anybody missing this game. We’ll have that report out for you, but I don’t think it’s going to be anything on there that’s going to surprise you at all. We look like we’re in good shape.”
Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos also turned in a favorable final injury report as only cornerback Tracy Porter was ruled out with a concussion. Head coach John Fox listed seven other players as probable for Saturday’s game.
