On paper, Pats look to have an advantage over banged up Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens have listed 21 players on their injury report, compared to the Patriots' five players, excluding the obvious 'out' designation for Rob Gronkowski, who was placed on IR this week.

While most on the Baltimore list are probable for Sunday, there are some questions about the health of a few players, mainly running back Bernard Pierce (knee), who's questionable and did not practice Thursday and was limited Friday.

Full injury report as of friday evening:


OUT: B Asa Jackson (thigh).

QUESTIONABLE: LB Dannell Ellerbe (ankle/back), FB Vonta Leach (knee/ankle), RB Bernard Pierce (knee), WR David Reed (thigh). All four were limited in practice Friday. Pierce didn't practice Thursday, and Ellerbe had a full practice on Thursday.

PROBABLE: RB Anthony Allen (head), WR Anquan Boldin (shoulder), CB Chykie Brown (shoulder), DT Terrence Cody (ankle), G Gino Gradkowski (head), DT Arthur Jones (thigh/knee), LB Ray Lewis (triceps), LB Albert McClellan (shoulder), DE Pernell McPhee (thigh), DT Haloti Ngata (knee), S Bernard Pollard (chest), S Ed Reed (shoulder), CB Jimmy Smith (abdominal), WR Torrey Smith (back), LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles/biceps) G Marshal Yanda (shoulder).
