Bernard Pierce questionable for Ravens

Pierce AP

Shaun Draughn?  Get ready to play.  Maybe.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce has landed on the final injury report of the week as questionable with a thigh injury.  He was limited in practice all week due to the condition.

Officially, the term “questionable” means Pierce is 50-50 to play.

Draughn arrived this week to supplement a running back corps that consists only of two players, Pierce and starter Ray Rice.

Also for the Ravens, left tackle Michael Oher is probable with an ankle injury.  Receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) is out, center Ryan Jensen (foot), receiver Deonte Thompson, and defensive tackle Brandon Williams (toe) are doubtful, and defensive tackle Art Jones (illness) is questionable.

For the Browns, guard Shaun Lauvao is out with an ankle injury, defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin is doubtful with a calf injury, receiver Travis Benjamin (thigh) and defensive back T.J. Ward (shoulder) are questionable, and linebacker Barkevious Mingo (lung) and defensive back Buster Skrine (shoulder) are probable.

    Pierce should be perfectly fine when he and Rice turn the Steelers D line into a pulpy mush.

    While he is just a middling RB, Shaun Draughn has a legendary reputation as a lady’s man. If you’re smooth enough some day friends might call you “a veritable Shaun Draughn”.

    “Draughn arrived this week to supplement a running back corps that consists only of two players, Pierce and starter Ray Rice.”

    Ravens have 4 receivers, and now only 2 running backs, one of which has never taken a snap as a Raven. Please homers, tell me again how Oz is a genius and Flacco’s inflated contract didn’t hurt the team.

    And what’s amazing is that the Offense is seemingly light years ahead of the Defense. Yikes.

    Hey crown how did the steelers look Sunday? I wasn’t able to watch the game. Did the offense look good?

    The Steelers O looked worse than I’ve ever seen. Hard to beleive they were still in the game through the end. They certainly didn’t rewrite the record-books like the Ravens did, but it’s a long season.

    Ravens are looking at.a fourth place finish in the AFC North.

    Barkevious Mingo (lung)

    this guy is a good player when he’s not injured, but he’s injured all of the time…smh!

    Considering the Ravens didn’t use Pierce much last week and ran the ball sparingly to begin with, does it really make a difference?

    They paid flacco and want to force him down everyone’s throat. 62 passes last week. Get ready for more of the same.

    Sad that steelers fans actually believe they stand a chance.

    While ravens got best by probably one of the top seeds in the AFC… Steelers will be fighting with browns all season to stay out of last place in division and possibly entire NFL.

    crown, Ravens actually have 5 RBs on the roster. Remember they have 2 full backs too. They started last year with two tail backs originally too so its not unusual. They have more receivers on the roster, just injured. Never said Ozzie is a genius for all his moves. But looking at his career it’s been well reported by countless news agencies he is very good. Flacco’s contract has been debunked nearly everywhere too.

    Keep trying though, you might stumble across something new.

    Simple, have a 315 lb man run flush into your ribs at full force.

    The ravens should just use Bobby Rainey.. Oh wait!

  13. scoobies05 says: Sep 13, 2013 5:13 PM

    correct crown…its a long season. raven d will improve. steelers o…not so much.

  14. rottenbellybutton says: Sep 13, 2013 5:24 PM

    The steeler offense is also questionable for MNF. Oh who am I kidding, we all know they’re doubtful to put any points up on Cincy. Better hope the D can register 21 pts. somehow!

  15. crownofthehelmet says: Sep 13, 2013 7:01 PM

    Been a fan too long to count them out after one week scoobs. I wouldn’t be so sure about your d improving too much anytime soon. While they won’t get torched for 40+ every week, they’re a long way from being playoff caliber. By the way, for O vs D, want to use points or yards as the ranking measure – your call. Good day sir.

  16. scoobies05 says: Sep 14, 2013 6:22 AM

    i would say points. good day to you as well

    Crownofthehelmet please keep in mind that Pitta and Jones were healthy and who knew they would get hurt. They have a starting running back that is very good, his back up might not play, and the person they just signed is known to be good at pass protection. We all know you hate the Ravens. I am sure the Ravens will have a better record than the Steelers and Browns only team to worry about is Cin. Grow up every team makes hard decision and some look great one week and bad the next. Like the Steelers decision not to blow it up in the off season and now they are restructuring contacts now. That group of fans will have to wait a while for all these bad contracts to expire.

    you are never as good as you look at your best or as bad as you look at your worst. my guess is last week was as bad as it gets for our d and your o. i believe ravens d has better, healthier players which is why i think i will win our wager. we can go with total points rankings. never understood why nfl uses yds are its measuring stick when the object is to score. good luck and have a good day

    Ravens 24, Browns 13.

  20. crownofthehelmet says: Sep 14, 2013 1:43 PM

    @whojustme, not sure how you dont think everyone is better than the ravens after last weeks showing. They’ll finish last in the division.

    @scoobs, agree with everything you’ve said, except of course for your misguided predictions.

    @excessive – way off, Cle will have 13 after 2 possessions. 21-42 Browns.

  21. scoobies05 says: Sep 14, 2013 1:53 PM

    of course you disagree…hence our wager.

  22. scoobies05 says: Sep 14, 2013 2:19 PM

    hey crown…the reason people dont think the ravens are the worst team in the division is obvious. they saw the steeler game. bengals 27 steelers 6

  23. crownofthehelmet says: Sep 14, 2013 8:03 PM

    et tu scoobs? Thought you’d have seen enough Pit beatdowns of “on the rise” Cin teams to know some things remain constant. This will be an easy one, Monday night prime time is too big a stage for the Bengals.

  24. scoobies05 says: Sep 14, 2013 9:06 PM

    um crown….just firing back on your 42 to 21 browns over ravens score. although i do like the ravens chances at home vs cleveland then the steelers chances on the road vs cinci. i think both games will be closer than people think
