Expect Ray Rice to return to his marquee position in the Ravens offense.
With Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak’s run-first offense, Rice will see plenty of action in 2014. And the offense’s success will largely rest on his stocky legs.
“I think as he goes, we’ll go,” Kubiak said of Rice in an interview with BaltimoreRavens.com.
“Our goal is to get him going, and he’s excited to get going and put last year behind him.”
Kubiak shared the carries between Arian Foster and backup Ben Tate in Houston. And he’ll do the same in Baltimore with Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce.
“I think in this league nowadays you need a couple of guys,” Kubiak said. “It’s hard to hand it to one guy 30 times a game; they just get worn down. It’ll take both of them. They’re very talented and if we can get both of them going, the better we’ll be.”
The article doesn't really shed a ton of light on the situation, other than the fact that Kubiak seems committed to getting Rice going again. But then he compares Pierce to Arian Foster. Rice looked like an "old" 26 year-old, but said after the season that he struggled all year with a hip injury.
