Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall is expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Ravens after missing the past four games with an Achilles injury. Mendenhall is listed as probable on the Steelers injury report.
Steelers safety Ryan Clark is also likely to play despite suffering his second concussion in three weeks. He is also listed as probable.
As expected, four starters for Pittsburgh have been ruled out: quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder), safety Troy Polamalu (calf), wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle).
For the Ravens, starting defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh) is listed as doubtful a day after telling reporters that he was at full strength. He will be replaced by Art Jones.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith is the only player for Baltimore who has been ruled out. He had groin surgery Thursday.
