As the Ravens prepare for Sunday's AFC North road showdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers, it remains unclear who will start at left offensive guard.

Although veteran Bobbie Williams' sprained left ankle has improved and he was limited in practice today, Jah Reid played solidly for the most part as he replaced Williams for the final three quarters of a 55-20 rout of the Oakland Raiders last week.

There are some indications of a potentially expanded role for Reid going forward.

"I don't know what they're planning for this week," Reid said. "I'm just going to come out and work and see what the coaches decide."

Ravens coach John Harbaugh indicated that both linemen will be utilized against Pittsburgh.

"I must have done something OK," Reid said. "I must not have been terrible. That makes me happy."

Harbaugh noted that Reid could stand for improvement in his pass-blocking fundamentals.

"I need to improve," Reid said. "I'll need to keep working on my sets."

Reid did clear a path for Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice on a seven-yard touchdown run, getting his name called out by CBS broadcaster and Hall of Fame offensive lineman Dan Dierdorf.

"That was exciting," Reid said. "People saw my name on TV. That was pretty cool, that's pretty awesome."

Meanwhile, Williams said his ankle has come along quickly.

"I feel a lot better, man," Williams siad. "I'm just planning on getting the wheels moving and seeing how things play out."

Told of Harbaugh's comment that both he and Reid will play, Williams replied: "If John says it, that's how it's going to be."
