The Baltimore Ravens released their Friday Injury Report & Game Status for Sunday's home game vs. the Houston Texans and while it looked a lot more promising at the beginning of the week, it appears that the time off may be helping the walking wounded, but not enough to get the healthy for this game. WR Lee Evans (ankle) will not play and rookie CB Jimmy Smith (ankle) will not be making his much anticipated return either.
Joining those two on the sidelines will be safety Tom Zbikowski (head) and CB Chris Carr (thigh). Guard Ben Grubbs (toe) remains "questionable," so it will be a game-time decision for him as to if he will play on Sunday afternoon. Safety Haruki Nakamura (knee), WR/KR David Reed (shoulder), LB Dannell Ellerbe (thigh) and RB Anthony Allen (thigh) are all listed as "probable," which usually means that they will suit up and play.
On the Texans side, other than LB Mario Williams, who is out for the year, WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) has been officially declared out and FB James Casey (chest) is listed as "doubtful," so expect to not see either of these guys Sunday other than on the sidelines in street clothes.
