Ray Rice hobbles to locker room with hip injury

A fumble earlier might not be the worst thing that happens to Ravens running back Ray Rice.

Rice just hobbled off the field and straight into the locker room with a left hip injury, which would be a blow for a Ravens offense that doesn’t need it.

The Ravens lead 14-6, thanks to a third-quarter drive capped by a Bernard Pierce touchdown and a touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Marlon Brown.

But while Pierce is a solid option, losing a versatile option like Rice is something they can ill afford, given their struggles to keep tight ends and receivers on the field.
