As the Ravens enter their week of preparation for the AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers, don’t expect a flood of information about the team’s injuries.
In his Monday press conference, Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh remained mum on injured starters Le’Ron McClain (ankle), Michael Oher (knee) and Dawan Landry (concussion).
“We’ll see,” Harbaugh told reporters. “We’ll just take a look at them and see how they respond over the next two days and see where we are.
“That’s all you’re getting.”
All three players left Sunday’s 17-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and didn’t return.
Asked if he noticed any sign of improvement on Monday, Harbaugh said, “No. No indication.”
There was a brief expectation that Oher would return to action in the Bucs game, as he was originally deemed probable in a press box report, but Head Trainer Bill Tessendorf advised Harbaugh that Oher’s day was finished.
Oher was replaced at left tackle by Oniel Cousins.
“It was medical. They came back and told us that he wasn’t going to be up to the rest of the game,” said Harbaugh. “I don’t know what the conversation was, but Bill T. just said he was done.
“The same with Dawan Landry. [Tessendorf] told us he was done.”
In the post-game locker room, Landry told media he was optimistic to make it back for the Steelers game, but the safety will have to pass concussion tests before practicing. Landry’s spot was filled by Haruki Nakamura.
Meanwhile, McClain left M&T Bank Stadium in a walking boot. Rookie tight end Dennis Pitta took over some of McClain’s fullback duties against the Bucs.
