There were no surprises Wednesday as the Ravens released their final injury report of a short week. The Ravens will be without three starters Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Starting left tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) will miss his third straight game. Defensive end Chris Canty (calf) and tight end Crockett Gillmore (calf) will also be out, and first-round wide receiver Breshad Perriman will miss his fourth straight game with a knee injury that dates back to July.

James Hurst has been starting at left tackle. Rookie Maxx Williams is next in line at tight end, while Lawrence Guy and Kapron Lewis-Moore will probably play more in Canty’s absence.

The Steelers, as expected, ruled quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee), backup nose tackle Daniel McCullers (knee), backup tight end Matt Spaeth (knee), and starting linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) out. Cornerback Cortez Allen (knee) is questionable.

Roethlisberger will miss 4-6 weeks and Michael Vick will start in his place. Shazier will miss his second straight game since posting 15 tackles vs. the 49ers in Week 2.
