BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens placed outside linebacker Sergio Kindle on their inactive list against Pittsburgh, further delaying his long-awaited NFL debut.
Kindle missed his rookie season in 2010 with a fractured skull.
He played during the preseason, but Paul Kruger will likely serve as the other outside rusher with Terrell Suggs on Sunday against the Steelers.
Pittsburgh will be without injured wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, cornerback Curtis Brown, offensive linemen Chris Scott and Ramon Foster, running back Jonathan Dwyer and quarterback Dennis Dixon.
Ravens inactives include wide receiver Tandon Doss, linebackers Jason Phillips and Michael McAdoo and cornerback Chykie Brown.
