This is a unique week for the Ravens, who won't play some of their starters against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. With the top seed in the AFC North already clinched, Head Coach John Harbaugh has announced that Lamar Jackson, Marshal Yanda, Earl Thomas III, Brandon Williams and Mark Ingram will not play Sunday.
Other starters could be rested as well. The Ravens didn't practice Wednesday but released a practice report estimation. Three players were listed with injuries – tight end Mark Andrews (ankle), cornerback Marcus Peters (chest) and Ingram (calf). All three suffered their injuries during the Week 16 victory over the Cleveland Browns, and the Ravens will have the luxury of resting them against Pittsburgh if they are not ready to go.
Three Ravens were listed as not participating for non-injury reasons – cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Jimmy Smith, and safety Earl Thomas III.
Pittsburgh listed three starters as non-participants due to injury – running back James Conner (quad), starting center Maurkice Pouncey (knee) and cornerback Steven Nelson (groin). Six Steelers were listed as missing practice for non-injury reasons – outside linebacker T.J. Watt, inside linebacker Mark Barron, defensive tackle Cameron Hayward, guard David DeCastro, tight end Vance McDonald and left tackle Alejandro Villanueva.
