Of the few injury concerns for the Ravens, the largest was the status of Ed Reed’s left ankle, which the free safety landed awkwardly on while making his fourth and final pass breakup in Sunday’s 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans in an AFC divisional playoff game.

Coach John Harbaugh provided a positive update on Reed’s ankle during his weekly news conference.

“Ed looks like he’s all right with the ankle,” Harbaugh said. “Everything’s come up OK as far as the X-rays.”

Harbaugh said inside linebackers Jameel McClain (sprained left knee) and Brendon Ayanbadejo (sprained right quadriceps) did not suffer a setback.

“They fought through theirs,” Harbaugh said. “They were right-to-the-last-minute decisions, and they came out of them OK.”

Finally, Harbaugh said there was “nothing serious” about defensive tackle Arthur Jones’ leg injury.
