Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin, questionable for Sunday night vs. Steelers with a back injury, is expected to play, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 10, 2017
Maclin was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, and did not practice at all on Thursday. Maclin was a full participant in Friday’s practice, but was still listed as questionable.
The news that Maclin is expected to play is certainly good for a Ravens offense that will need all the weapons it can possible get against the Steelers. The Ravens offense has struggled all year, but against a well rounded Steelers team, it’s a unit that must step up. Maclin, despite not having much production last week, will play a key role if the Ravens plan on winning at Heinz Field on Sunday night. His presence in the lineup could go a long way for Joe Flacco, especially against this banged up Steelers defense, a group that will be missing Joe Haden and Ryan Shazier.
