Ravens backup running back Bernard Pierce remains out until training camp after undergoing rotator cuff surgery in January on his right shoulder. Harbaugh reiteratated that Pierce isn't going to practice the entire spring.
The Ravens could need Pierce to play a lot early in the season, especially if starter Ray Rice is suspended under the NFL personal-conduct policy because of a domestic violence incident at an Atlantic City casino.
“He’s been allowed to move around a little bit, but we just can’t risk him falling on it right now and getting a setback,” Harbaugh said. “So, you’re probably looking at training camp for him, which shouldn’t be an issue as long as you don’t get a setback.”
Rice's situation makes Pierce a player to monitor this offseason. Justin Forsett, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Cierre Wood are next up on the depth chart.
