Ray Rice to be game-time decision vs. Texans

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice suffered a hip injury during last week’s win over the Cleveland Browns. The official diagnosis for Rice following the game was a strained left hip flexor and the injury should not keep him out of action for long.

On Friday morning, the Baltimore Sun released a report after speaking with a Virginia-based hip surgeon.

It is important to note that the hip specialist is not treating Rice, but he says that it “usually takes a week or two to recover from hip flexor strains depending on the severity.”

The good news for the Ravens is that Rice is no longer sporting a limp and there is a possibility that he could take the field when the team faces off against the Houston Texans this weekend. However, Rice will be a game-time decision.

With Rice likely looking at a limited role, you can expect running back Bernard Pierce to handle a bulk of the carries.
