Bernard Pierce RB BAL 22 Days

Pierce (thigh) did not receive a single carry nor a target in Sunday's 38-10 rout of the Panthers.

Pierce started the first two games of the season but missed Week 3 due to a thigh injury. Despite returning to health for Sunday's game, Pierce was left with a donut while watching Justin Forsett carry 14 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and Lorenzo Taliaferro rack up 58 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. The Ravens were expected to use a committee approach with their three backs, but Forsett got the start and played most of the game, while Taliaferro got the garbage-time work, which ended with his late touchdown. It's poor news overall for Pierce's fantasy owners, who will have to adjust their projections down given the timeshare.

Pierce, who missed this past Sunday's game with a strained quad, was able to practice Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

It remains to be seen if Pierce will be listed as a full or limited participant Wednesday, but his return to practice would appear to put him on track to suit up Sunday against the Panthers. Assuming that's the case, Pierce could find himself in some form of a committee situation up his return, given the solid results turned in by Lorenzo Taliaferro and Justin Forsett in Pierce's Week 3 absence.

Speaking after Sunday's win over the Browns, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Pierce (thigh) is dealing with a short-term muscular injury, Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Harbaugh's words indicate that Pierce has a shot to return for Week 4 against the Panthers, after the running back was unable to suit up Sunday. However, Pierce may find himself in a committee upon returning, as Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro combined for 154 rushing yards on 29 carries in Sunday's game.

Pierce was a limited participant in Friday's practice and was listed as questionable coming in, though it turned out that he was a true game-time decision and just couldn't do enough in warmups to warrant playing.
