As expected, the Ravens will be without WR Lee Evans (ankle), who apparently will be rested for the next week in order to hopefully be ready for the game a week from Sunday night when the Ravens host the New York Jets in prime time on national TV. Also out for the game are both WR/KR David Reed (shoulder) and rookie CB Jimmy Smith (ankle). Guard Ben Grubbs (toe) and CB Chris Carr (thigh) are listed as questionable and if Grubbs cannot play as expected, recently signed center Andre Gurode appears to be ready to slide over to play left guard for the first time in his NFL career. Listed as probable but expected to play are center Matt Birk (knee), DT Terrence Cody (head) and DE Cory Redding (toe).
For the St. Louis Rams, no one on their roster is listed as out and only WR Danny Amendola (elbow) is listed as doubtful. A slew of players are on the Rams questionalbe list, inluding running backs Steven Jackson (quad) and Carnell "Cadillac" Williams (hamstring).
