Though it was thought the injury might be a knee sprain that could keep Baltimore RB Ray Rice out a while, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said today Rice had a significant knee contusion but he could return for the Pittsburgh game Sunday.
“We'll see how it goes,” Harbaugh said during his Monday news conference. “You've got to see how it heals throughout the course of the week."
Rice hurt himself early in the fourth quarter Sunday after catching a pass from Ravens QB Joe Flacco and making a cut to try to slip past a Browns defender. He left the stadium on a crutch, but apparently, his injury isn’t that serious.
As the Baltimore Sun points out, if Rice can’t play Sunday, look for Willis McGahee, Le'Ron McClain and Jalen Parmele to get more snaps.
