CINCINNATI – The Ravens are resting receiver Anquan Boldin, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and linebacker Terrell Suggs against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday for a game that meant little to either team.
The Ravens already had won the AFC North and the Bengals had clinched the final wild card berth.
Boldin is inactive for the first time this season because of a bruised shoulder suffered during a win over the Giants. Ngata missed practice all week with a sore knee. Suggs returned from a torn right biceps and started the last two games. Safety Bernard Pollard misses a third straight game with an injured chest.
Cornerback Terence Newman is out for the Bengals because of a groin injury. Nate Clements takes his spot opposite Leon Hall.
