Carroll County Times - [Full Article]

One week removed from running back Willis McGahee not playing at all against the New England Patriots, he split the workload with Pro Bowl runner Ray Rice on Sunday.

Rice rushed for 72 yards on 16 carries.

And McGahee gained 64 yards and scored a touchdown on 11 carries with a long run of 25 yards.

McGahee started the game, but Rice played more than he did.

"It was just like any other game," McGahee said. "Whether Ray starts or I start really wasn't anything special. We work together, just giving each other rest. We worked on it all week the rotation."

Rice didn't seem to mind sharing carries with McGahee.

"It was our game plan going in, and I think it was smart on the end of our coaching staff," Rice said. "I came out of the game healthy, no wear and tear on the body. I think we both did a pretty good job of running the ball."
