With his legal troubles having cast doubt on his playing future, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been committed to what he can control: losing weight and getting back to full strength after a hip injury derailed him last season.
Rice is attending the start of the Ravens' offseason conditioning program and has impressed team staff.
"He looks great," strength and conditioning coach Bob Rogucki told reporters Tuesday.
Rice played too heavy last year and it showed. He's facing a major off-field issue, but if he can clear that hurdle he should be a RB2 in Gary Kubiak's offense.
