If Ed Reed does suit up for the Texans on Sunday in Baltimore, there’s a pretty good chance that he’ll be trying to tackle Bernard Pierce instead of Ray Rice.
Rice has been listed as doubtful for the Week Three matchup between the teams because of the hip injury that has kept him out of practice all week. Listing a player as doubtful means that the team believes there is a 25 percent chance that he’ll be able to play in that week’s game, although Ravens coach John Harbaugh gave a different indication when discussing the status of Rice and defensive tackle Chris Canty.
“There’s really nothing new to report,” Harbaugh said, via Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. “If I had something different with a guy, I’d share it with you, but they are all working hard to get back. They are all kind of in the same neighborhood as far as getting back, particularly the Cantys and Ray Rice and those guys who were injured last week. It will get a game-time decision for those guys and we’ll keep our fingers crossed although we’re prepared for it to go either way.”
Canty missed practice all week with a groin injury and is listed as doubtful. Linebacker Arthur Brown is in the same boat as a result of a chest injury.
