Ravens running back Bernard Pierce expected to have offseason shoulder surgery

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Recommended following second opinion.

Add another Ravens player to the list of those that need offseason surgery.

It's expected that backup running back Bernard Pierce will undergo a surgical procedure to fix an issue with his rotator cuff, reports the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson on Wednesday.

Wilson wrote that Pierce received a second opinion at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. It's expected that after surgery, which hasn't been scheduled at this time, it will take four to five months to rehab the injury. Without surgery, it would take months to strengthen the shoulder, which is probably why Pierce is electing to have the procedure.

In 2013, Pierce ran for 436 yards and two touchdowns, averaging just 2.9 yards per carry.
