Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh doesn’t think much of injury reports , so he probably won’t be reading this roundup. If Harbaugh did, he’d know that the Cleveland Browns ruled out Dimitri Patterson (ankle) and listed defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (calf) as “doubtful” for this Sunday’s game. The Browns did activate 2011 first-round defensive tackle Phil Taylor from the physically unable to perform list, placing defensive end Brian Sanford on injured reserve to fit Taylor on the 53-man roster. Sanford popped up on these “invaluable” injury report on Thursday with a knee injury. For the Ravens, defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh) is out and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is questionable with a shoulder injury. Ngata is expected to play, but perhaps in a more limited role. Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) was limited on Friday and the team sounds optimistic he’ll start against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. However, Tannehill is listed as “questionable,” which means there’s a 50/50 chance he won’t play, in which case the team would turn to Matt Moore. In addition to Tannehill, wide receiver Brian Hartline (groin) is “questionable,” but the team’s leading receiver is expected to play against a Colts secondary that will be without former Dolphins first-round cornerback Vontae Davis, who was ruled out with a knee injury. Colts second-round tight end Coby Fleener (shoulder) is also out, but the rest of the Colts’ injury report looks good as linebackers Dwight Freeney (ankle), Robert Mathis (knee) and Pat Angerer (foot) and running back Donald Brown (knee) are “probable” for this week’s game. The Atlanta Falcons announced on Thursday that outside linebacker Sean Weatherspoon would miss Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys with a low right ankle sprain. The Falcons have also ruled out guard Garrett Reynolds, which means 2012 second-round pick Peter Konz will make another start at right guard. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White (back) practiced fully on Thursday and Friday and is a go for the Dallas game. Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant missed all of this week’s practices after suffering a hip injury in the fourth quarter of last Sunday’s 29-24 loss to the New York Giants and is listed as “questionable” on the final injury report of the week.
