OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens tight end Todd Heap and safety Tom Zbikowski have been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints because of injuries.
Heap has a pulled right hamstring and Zbikowski has a back injury.
Heap’s injury occurred on Baltimore’s first offensive Dec. 5 against Pittsburgh. The two-time Pro Bowl pick missed the rest of the game and was inactive Monday night in Houston.
Zbikowski is awaiting the results of an MRI exam to determine the severity of his back injury. He could end up on injured reserve if he can’t come back within the next two weeks.
Also, running backs Le’Ron McClain and Willis McGahee missed Friday’s practice because of the flu and are questionable.
Cornerback Fabian Washington (hamstring), linebacker Tavares Gooden (calf) and wide receiver Derrick Mason (ankle) are probable.
