Woodley ruled out for Steelers; Ravens' Ngata probable

Get one back, lose another. It's a theme the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely have to deal with for their Sunday night showdown against the division-rival Baltimore Ravens.

In the linebacker department, the Steelers will be without LaMarr Woodley (strained left hamstring), who was ruled out, but could have James Harrison (fractured orbital bone) back after he was listed as probable. Harrison has missed the previous four games, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that he will start if all goes well with a scheduled doctors appointment Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Steelers won't have wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee), who is dealing with the death of his mother. Wide receiver Hines Ward (ankle sprain) is listed as questionable, and the Post-Gazette reports that he is expected to start against Baltimore.

Steelers Linebacker James Farrior (calf) is questionable, while guard Doug Legursky will miss his fourth game of the season.

The Ravens had a bit of a scare this week when Pro Bowl nose tackle Haloti Ngata (thigh) missed consecutive practices, but he participated in a limited role on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game.

Ravens wide receiver Lee Evans (ankle) will miss his sixth straight game.
