Comment: Pierce (shoulder) will likely be the starting running back while Rice serves his two-game suspension.
|Ray Rice to be suspended two games|
NFL yet to confirm suspension
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jul 24, 10:15 am
|NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will hand down a two-game suspension to Ray Rice for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, sources confirmed. The league has not officially announced the suspension.
FFToday's Take: Rice will miss games against division foes Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Bernard Pierce (shoulder) will likely replace Rice in the starting lineup the first two weeks of the season. It appears that being a first-time offender helped Rice keep his suspension to a minimum. Rice's ADP of RB28, round six, should begin to rise slightly on this news.
|Ravens rookie RB Taliaferro arrested|
Charged with two misdemeanors after taxicab incident

|Baltimore Ravens fourth-round draft pick Lorenzo Taliaferro was arrested early Saturday morning. According to the Williamsburg Police Department, officer J.A. Wagner observed a group get into a cab and said he heard yelling and cursing among the group. Taliaferro reportedly left the scene after breaking a window, but was located about a block away. He was charged with being drunk in public and destruction of property, both misdemeanors. (Virginia Gazette)|
FFToday's Take: Given Ray Rice's incident involving his then-fiancee in a casino earlier this offseason (and likely multiple-game suspension), Bernard Pierce's recovery from shoulder surgery and Taliaferro's arrest, the Ravens are hurting at running back at the moment. At this rate, Baltimore may be forced both Justin Forsett and Cierre Wood, neither of whom should make the team under normal circumstances.
