October 03, 2010 | Glenn Clark

PITTSBURGH, Pa. — Greetings from Heinz Field, where the Baltimore Ravens (2-1) will face the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0) in an AFC North showdown at 1pm today. The game can be seen live on CBS (WJZ 13 locally) with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on the call. We will be chatting about the game in our “Purple Haze” chat, you can join us HERE.

Here are today’s inactives…

Ravens-
WR Donte’ Stallworth (foot)
CB Prince Miller
CB Josh Wilson
DT Arthur Jones
LB Edgar Jones
DL Cory Redding (concussion)
LB Tavares Gooden (shoulder)
OT Jared Gaither (back)

This of course means that RB Ray Rice (knee) is active; and DL’s Paul Kruger and Terrence Cody are both active for the first time this season. We are working under the assumption that Kruger will make the first start of his NFL career at DE as Trevor Pryce signed with the New York Jets earlier in the week.

Steelers-
CB Keenan Lewis
RB Jonathan Dwyer
CB Crezdon Butler
OT Tony Hills
DT Chris Hoke (knee)
OT Trai Essex (ankle)
WR Emmanuel Sanders
LB Thaddeus Gibson

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced earlier in the week that Charlie Batch will start at QB as Ben Roethlisberger serves the final game of his 4 game suspension for violating the league’s conduct policy. OL Doug Legursky will start at RG in place of Essex. The Steelers placed QB Dennis Dixon (knee) on Injured Reserve yesterday; they signed DT Steve McLendon to the active roster. McLendon is active today.

Ed Hochuli and crew will officiate today’s game. The Ravens will wear their white tops and white pants, the Steelers will wear their black tops and yellow pants. (They’re not gold. They’re yellow.) The sky in the Steel City remains is overcast, but Weather.com (The Weather Channel) says harder rain won’t be coming until after the game is over.

Come chat with us!
