Not limping or wincing in pain, Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice proclaimed himself ready to play in Sunday’s pivotal AFC North clash against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Rice returned to practice Thursday for the first time since suffering a significant bruise on his right knee in the fourth quarter against the Cleveland Browns. Rice participated on a limited basis, but expressed confidence that he’s ready to take on the Steelers.
“I feel great,” Rice said one day after he was shielded from conducting interviews. “We have a great corps of backs, but I’m sure I’ll be ready to play.”
