Ravens running back Ray Rice is battling an illness, but he will play this afternoon against the Steelers.
Rice started feeling sick Friday afternoon and threw up at the team hotel in Pittsburgh early Friday evening, according to ESPN’s Bob Holtzman.
But Rice wrote on Twitter this morning that he’s “feeling a lot better,” and told a fan who expressed concern, “you know I’m playing.”
Rice had 17 carries for 57 yards and five catches for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ wild card win over the Chiefs. He struggled against the Steelers this season (as all running backs have), running for a total of 52 yards in two games.
