Ravens vs. Steelers Wednesday Injury Report and Game Status

flaccowoodley

Both the Ravens and Steelers got their final walkthrough/practice sessions in early on Wednesday, trying to give themselves the most possible time to rest up after having just played on Sunday afternoon. The time from now up until tomorrow evening when most of America is in a tryptophan coma will be spent preparing mentally, rather than physically, for a game that could ultimately decide which – if either – of these two teams heads to the postseason in 2013.

There was a surprise absence from Steelers practice today, as LaMarr Woodley – who earlier in the week looked good to go for Thursday – must have had a setback and is now listed as doubtful for the game. The rest of the Steelers look good to go. Troy Polamalu and Heath Miller both sat out a couple of practice sessions this week, but that was just to rest – they’ll play tomorrow night.

The Ravens are remarkably healthy for this time of year, as their injury report lists only two players, Brynden Trawick (who is out) and Chris Canty (probable).

As opposed to last time these two teams met, when we all kept saying how it didn’t really “feel” like Ravens/Steelers week, this time around has the feel of another classic clash. Thanks to the mediocre, watered-down AFC, whichever squad can improve to 6-6 on  Turkey Day will have the inside track to the 6th seed in the conference (and, depending on what the Cincinnati Bengals do over the last month, an outside shot at the AFC North title).

Happy Thanksgiving, Baltimore. Let’s get it on.
