Defensive end Chris Canty (calf) and tight end Crockett Gillmore (calf) are among those listed as inactive for the Ravens.
Linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) and tight end Matt Spaeth (hand) are inactive for the Steelers who are without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is out for four to six weeks with a sprained MCL he suffered in Sunday’s game.
Roethlisberger passed for 912 yards and four touchdowns from his two-plus games before his injury.
With Gillmore out, rookie Maxx Williams should see a lot more in targets as a result.
Meanwhile, James Harrison offensive linebacker and center Cody Wallace are both active for the Steelers.
With Roethlisberger out for a while, Pittsburgh will be hoping that veteran QB Michael Vick can roll back the years and lead the team to its third straight win against a very struggling Baltimore side.
Vick has a career record of 59-50-1 as an NFL starting quarterback and the Steelers will keep its fingers cross that the former New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles player can add to his winning record as a starter.
The Ravens have opener the season 0-3, but the oddsmakers have them as 3-point favourites for this Thursday Night Football game.
Joe Flacco comes into this game passing for 863 yards and four touchdowns.
Will he outshine Vick?
Guess we will just have to wait and see.
