Heading out of a physical 17-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens were close to having injury issues with their running back corps. 
 
But, it seems that Ray Rice’s knee contusion was not a problem, Willis McGahee went concussion-free and Le’Ron McClain felt good enough to return after getting dinged up.
 
“I didn’t think [Rice] really showed any signs of the knee issue,” said Head Coach John Harbaugh.  “He did a great job last week getting himself ready to play and looked good on Sunday.  Willis doesn’t have a concussion, so he should be fine. 
 
“Those guys are OK.”
 
Rice went into the game with what was deemed a “significant” knee bruise suffered in Baltimore’s Week 3 matchup with the Cleveland Browns, according to Harbaugh.
 
The Ravens’ final injury report of Steelers week had Rice listed as questionable, meaning he had a 50-percent chance of playing.  Still, Rice held strong and posted a hard-fought 20 yards on eight carries.
 
McGahee left in the third quarter when he was blasted by Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison, a hit that caused a fumble.  The Ravens reported that McGahee sustained a stinger, and the eight-year veteran said he could have returned.
 
As for McClain, he also left the field in the third period, but returned. Afterwards, he said he felt numbness in his shoulder.
