 OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -The Baltimore Ravens' tight end Todd Heap, quarterback Kyle Boller and running back Willis McGahee will not play in Sunday's season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Baltimore (4-11) has lost a franchise-record nine consecutive games and will finish in last place in the AFC North for the first time since 1997.
Rookie Troy Smith will replace Boller, out with a concussion, and McGahee (fractured ribs) will be replaced by fifth-year pro Musa Smith.
With Heap out for the ninth time over the past 10 games due to a strained hamstring, the only healthy tight end on the active roster is undrafted rookie Lee Vickers. He's preparing for his first NFL start after beginning the season as a defensive end on the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad.
Backup tight ends Daniel Wilcox (thigh) and Quinn Sypniewski (concussion) are out as are wide receiver Demetrius Williams (high-ankle sprain) and safety Gerome Sapp (hamstring).
And middle linebacker Ray Lewis isn't ``looking good'' to return from a dislocated finger and a back injury, coach Brian Billick said.
Listed as questionable on the injury report, Lewis hasn't practiced all week.
