PITTSBURGH — Troy Polamalu's creaky knee won't keep him out of the playoffs.

The Pittsburgh Steelers safety will start Saturday night's wild-card game against Baltimore after missing the final two games of the regular season with a sprained knee.

Steelers Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell is inactive, as is wide receiver Lance Moore and cornerback Ike Taylor. Coach Mike Tomlin ruled out Bell on Friday when Bell's hyperextended right knee prevented him from practicing all week.

Baltimore defensive end Chris Canty is active for the Ravens. Canty missed the regular season finale against Cleveland with an ankle injury. Baltimore left tackle Eugene Monroe is out with a foot injury. Rookie James Hurst will start in place of Monroe.
