The Ravens could get their other big man in the middle back against the San Francisco 49ers, as Michael Pierce (ankle) practiced every day this week and is listed as questionable to play. Pierce was a full participant Friday.
Head Coach John Harbaugh said at the start of the week that Pierce had a chance to play Sunday after missing the past two games. The same was true last week, but Pierce only practiced once.
It would be great timing to get Pierce back this week with the 49ers bringing the NFL's No. 2-ranked rushing offense to M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore wants to stop the run first and foremost.
Baltimore had some new additions to the injury report this week with guard Bradley Bozeman (ankle), tight end Nick Boyle (ankle), Matthew Judon (ankle), Domata Peko (knee) and wide receiver Miles Boykin (ankle).
All are listed as questionable. Boykin was the only player on the 53-man roster who did not practice fully Friday.
49ers Rule Out a Pro Bowl Pass Rusher
The 49ers are the team with more injury concerns heading into Sunday's game.
Pro Bowl pass rusher Dee Ford was ruled out Friday after he didn't practice all week. Ford, who has 6.5 sacks this season, suffered a serious hamstring injury in Week 11.
Veteran Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Staley (finger) and top running back Matt Breida (ankle) are questionable.
Staley underwent surgery on a dislocated and fractured finger in Week 10 and has missed the past two games but returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. Breida was limited all week.
Wide receiver Dante Pettis (knee) was also ruled out. Kicker Robbie Gould, who had been dealing with a quad injury, will return to action.
