Bernard Pierce injury: Ravens RB says he'll play in 2013 AFC Championship game

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce guarantees he'll play this Sunday, when the Ravens head to Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots in the 2013 AFC Championship game.

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce guarantees he'll play in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, when the Ravens take on the New England Patriots in a rematch of last year's AFC title game.

Pierce aggravated a knee injury during Baltimore's thrilling double overtime win over the Denver Broncos on Saturday. Pierce carried the ball just five times for 14 yards in Baltimore's upset win.

In Baltimore's Wild Card round win over the Indianapolis Colts, Pierce ran the ball 13 times for a team-high 103 yards -- out rushing Ray Rice by 35 yards on two fewer carries.

Pierce was limited for Baltimore during the Ravens' Wednesday practice -- a good sign for both Pierce and the Ravens.

During the 2012 regular season, Pierce averaged 4.9 yards per carry.

Pierce has been listed on Baltimore's injury report twice in the playoffs so far. Pierce was limited in practice prior to the Wild Card round, and was listed as probable last week in the Divisional round.
