Ravens tight end Todd Heap is listed as questionable for Sunday's game, but he told reporters Friday that he plans to play against the Bills. Heap still has soreness in his neck and shoulder area from a helmet-to-helmet hit by New England safety Brandon Merriweather, but Heap said he can play through it.
The status of free safety Ed Reed is more uncertain. Although the perennial Pro Bowler practiced fully all week, he has not been removed from the physically unable to perform list. The Ravens are expected to make a move Saturday to clear a roster spot for him, but there is no guarantee he'll play on Sunday.
Reed has been sidelined for several months after having hip surgery. The Ravens have a bye after the game, so there is some consideration to give him another week of practice before exposing him to game action.
The Ravens could certainly use Reed on Sunday. Tom Zbikowski, the starter in the first six games, is out for Sunday with a bruised heel. His replacement if Reed isn't active will be either Haruki Nakamura or Ken Hamlin.
