Injuries on both sides could play role in Ravens-Steelers clash

Nose tackle Haloti Ngata missed his second straight practice for the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, putting his status for the team's Sunday night showdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in some doubt.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection, who has two forced fumbles and three sacks this season, sat out Thursday with what the team described as a thigh injury, according to the Baltimore Sun.

If Ngata does not play, second-year man Arthur Jones out of Syracuse could make his first career start.

Wide receiver Lee Evans (left ankle) and inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) also did not practice for the second consecutive day.

For the Steelers, linebackers James Harrison (fractured orbital bone), LaMarr Woodley (strained left hamstring) and James Farrior (torn calf muscle) and receiver Hines Ward (ankle sprain) were limited for the second day in a row.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review also reported that receiver Emmanuel Sanders probably will not play in Sunday's game due to the death of his mother.
