Friday update

Strong safety Troy Polamalu returned to practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday with a quad injury. Polamalu is expected to play Monday night against the Ravens.

Baltimore got some bad news when starting cornerback Samari Rolle for Monday night’s game because of shoulder and neck injuries.

In Rolle’s place, the Ravens could go with a combination of reserve cornerbacks Fabian Washington, Corey Ivy and Frank Walker.

Not having Rolle is a huge blow for the Ravens, who will also be playing without safety Dawan Landry.

Hopefully this will make it a little more difficult for them to bring the house on every blitz. They may not want to leave their corner on an island too often. Ben and the receivers have got to make them pay if they do.

I would not underestimate Fabian Washington. He's not as bad as people think.

Washington won't be the problem so much as their fourth corner will now be on the field in passing downs. Washington's OK. Not great.
