Mangold was limited in practice on Friday with Ryan saying the center was a "legitimate gametime decision" for the Sunday night matchup in Baltimore. Mangold -- who is dealing with a high ankle sprain -- is officially listed is questionable.
"The fact that it is a Sunday night game may help the process," Ryan said. "We'll see how it is, he truly is questionable."
Ryan said Mangold wants to be out there and relishes the opportunity to play against All-Pro defensive end Haloti Ngata, whom Ryan called the best in the business.
"Your great competitors want to go against the best, and Nick, even though he's not 100 percent, I think he wants that opportunity," Ryan said. "But, you know, we'll make the best decision for the team."
