Report: Pierce to start for Ravens

The SportsXchange

Bernard Pierce is "slated" to start at running back for the Baltimore Ravens in place of the injured Ray Rice, the Baltimore Sun reported Saturday.

Rice has started 43 straight regular-season games but is listed as doubtful on the team's injury report.

Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Rice will be a game-time decision. However, the Sun cited a source who said that Pierce is expected to start and that Rice's hip injury will likely last for two weeks.

Rice did not practice during the week.

Pierce has 28 carries for 79 yards with a touchdown in Baltimore's first two games.
