|Wallace’s status entering 2012 appears uncertain as the Steelers 4th year wide receiver has thus far refused to sign his restricted free agent tender which would pay him $2.7-million for the upcoming season. With reports indicating that Wallace and his agent have instead asked the team for a long term contract averaging $14-16-million, the gulf between the parties is clearly huge. Wallace is coming off a solid 2011 campaign where he finished the year with 72 receptions (a career-high), for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns. While those are solid numbers, he faded down the stretch and averaged a career-low 16.6 yards per reception. Over the final seven games of the season, he caught just 25 of 50 targets for 325 yards and a pair of scores. Despite that late season swoon, Wallace remains perhaps the most feared big play receiver in the game outside of Calvin Johnson and should be considered a mid-tier WR1 on draft day.

FF Today's Take: Flacco missed practice time this week but is expected to play although likely at less than 100 percent. A matchup with Jets is certainly good news for the Ravens QB and WR Mike Wallace.
| Steve Smith listed as Doubtful -- Fri Oct 14 1:10 pm --|

FF Today's Take: Smith is going to be inactive on Sunday which should increase the opportunities for Kamar Aiken and tight end Dennis Pitta. Mike Wallace is also in play as a Flex option.
| No practice for Steve Smith, Wallace limited -- Thu Oct 13 12:15 pm --|
Ravens banged up at receiver

FF Today's Take: Smith missed practice Wednesday and is a candidate for the inactive list. Wallace has a better chance of playing but we should know more on his status later in the week. Expect Kamar Aiken to see an increased workload against the Giants.
