Even with the return of wide receiver Anquan Boldin and right guard Marshal Yanda to Friday’s practice, the Baltimore Ravens listed both players as doubtful for Sunday’s regular-season finale at Cincinnati, according to Edward Lee of The Baltimore Sun.

Boldin, who underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee eight days ago, had already been ruled out after missing Wednesday’s and Thursday’s sessions. But because he was limited in practice on Friday, it was enough for the team to upgrade his status for the regular-season finale.

As for Yanda, he had missed the previous two days of practice after suffering bruises to his ribs and thighs in the Ravens’ 20-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Saturday. The last time Yanda missed a start was Nov. 22, 2009.

Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe has not practiced all week because of post-concussion symptoms. Along with Boldin and Yanda, Ellerbe is doubtful for Sunday.

Defensive end Cory Redding (right ankle), cornerback Cary Williams (post-concussion symptoms) and kicker Billy Cundiff (left calf) practiced Friday, but on a limited basis. All three are listed as questionable for this week, but Redding said he plans on playing against the Bengals, according to The Baltimore Sun.

“I feel great,” Redding said, who sat out the win against Cleveland, via The Baltimore Sun. “I’m playing.”

Finally, starting strong safety Bernard Pollard, who did not practice Thursday because of an illness, was removed from the injury report.
