Ravens running back Ray Rice out against Texans, ends starting streak

Ray Rice will not have a chance to play Sunday, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. - US PRESSWIRE

According to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, the Ravens will be without Rice Sunday afternoon.

It appears even more likely that Ray Rice's 43-game starting streak will come to an end Sunday afternoon.

According to a report from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, the Pro Bowl running back will not be available for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Rice injured his hip flexor a week ago against Cleveland and was unable to return to the game.


Even though Rice will probably not play, the injury isn't expected to keep him out for any kind of extended time. Rice was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report, though coach John Harbaugh said he would ultimately be a game-time decision.

The doubtful designation is almost akin to not being available, as it designates a 75 percent probability that one will not play.

All attention will turn to Bernard Pierce to shoulder the load Sunday. It will be interesting to see how the Ravens look without Rice involved in the offensive attack.
