AFC injury report: Ravens CB Rolle doubtful

The Ravens’ rugged defense could be without one of its top playmakers Sunday. And it’s not LB Terrell Suggs.

CB Samari Rolle, who made an interception during last week’s divisional-round victory over the Titans, hasn’t practiced all week because of a thigh injury and was listed Friday as doubtful for the AFC Championship Game against the Steelers. Rolle didn’t play in the first regular-season meeting with Pittsburgh because of an injury, but he made a season-high five tackles in the second game.

Suggs, who also didn’t practice all week because of a shoulder injury, is listed as questionable. He hasn’t missed a game in his six-year NFL career and was emotional Thursday while discussing the prospect of sitting out the AFC Championship Game. His arm was in a sling, and he’ll likely be a game-time decision.

Ravens WR Derrick Mason also missed the team’s practices this week and is questionable to play.

The Steelers’ injury report was small in comparison, with S Troy Polamalu (calf) and C Justin Hartwig (knee) listed as probable. Both fully participated in practice Friday.
