PITTSBURGH -- Baltimore Ravens starting cornerback Samari Rolle was inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a groin injury.

Linebacker Terrell Suggs, however, was active for Baltimore. He strained his right shoulder in the Ravens' 13-10 win over the Tennessee Titans and missed every practice leading up to Sunday's game.

Rolle has not practiced since being injured against the Titans. He was replaced in the starting lineup Sunday by Frank Walker.

All other starters from both teams were expected to play.
