Injury report: Ravens banged up at LB
By Jamison Hensley
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Three Baltimore Ravens linebackers are on the injury report for Sunday's game at the Pittsburgh Steelers, including two at inside linebacker.
The Ravens officially ruled out starting inside linebacker Josh Bynes after he had surgery on his infected finger. Rookie second-round pick Arthur Brown is expected to make his first career start.
Outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw (foot) and inside linebacker Albert McClellan (shoulder) are both listed as questionable. Upshaw has been limited all week, and McClellan played last Sunday with the same injury.
Without Bynes, the Ravens may consider activating Jameel McClain from the physically unable to perform list. McClain, who suffered a spinal cord contusion 10 months ago, is listed as probable after practicing all week.
Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is listed as questionable, but he returned to the game last Sunday after straining his elbow.
Here is the Ravens' official injury report:
OUT: ILB Josh Bynes (finger, thigh).
DOUBTFUL: WR Brandon Stokley (groin), C Ryan Jensen (foot).
QUESTIONABLE: CB Chykie Brown (thigh), DT Terrence Cody (knee), LB Albert McClellan (shoulder), DT Haloti Ngata (elbow), LB Courtney Upshaw (foot), CB Lardarius Webb (hamstring).
PROBABLE: DE Chris Canty (groin), LB Jameel McClain (neck), DT Marcus Spears (knee).
