According to the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore Ravens could be without their top running back for their critical AFC North matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend after Ray Rice suffered a “significant” bruise on his right knee. The injury occurred during Sunday’s 24-17 win over the Cleveland Browns.
From the Baltimore Sun:
It is believed that Rice suffered a bruise on the front of his right knee before leaving in the fourth quarter Sunday. According to an observer, Rice walked out of M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday night with the help of a crutch, but he was basically forced to use it by the team’s medical staff.
Losing Rice would be a significant blow to the Ravens’ ground game as they would lose their running back that produced 2,041 yards from the line of scrimmage and eight touchdowns. They will need all the help they can get against a Steelers’ unit that is allowing their opponents to average just 59.7 rushing yards and 11 points per game. In other words—Baltimore may need all of their offensive weapons in what is expected to be an intense defensive battle.
