According to ESPN, Rice was unable to go Wednesday in practice because of his bruised knee. There has been no indication from the team whether Rice has a chance to play or not against the Steelers this Sunday. That being said, I would stay away from Rice this week whether he plays or not. We all see what Pittsburgh did to Chris Johnson, and we all have also seen the numbers Rice hasn’t put up this year. The matchup isn’t favorable for any running back against the Steelers until further notice. But, if your in dire need to find a RB this week, consider picking up McGahee if he is available. Though he only has 1 TD this year, he was stealing TD’s like it was his job from Rice last year. If Flacco can have a very solid game, and he must for this to happen, I could see McGahee getting 40-50 yards and maybe 1 TD.
And if you’re playing me this week, Be Afraid.
