OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens linebacker Josh Bynes has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers after having surgery on an infected finger.
Bynes has started all six games this season at weak-side linebacker. He ranks fourth on the Ravens (3-3) with 31 tackles.
Rookie Arthur Brown will likely start for Bynes. Baltimore’s second-round pick in the draft, Brown has been mostly used in sub-packages and on special teams. He has two tackles and a half-sack.
Jameel McClain could also see time at the position. McClain injured his spinal cord in December and remains on the physically unable to perform list, but he returned to practice Wednesday and as a full participant. He is listed as probable for Sunday.
