John Harbaugh and Gary Kubiak are sitting at a poker table. Harbaugh looks across the table and says, "I see your All-Pro left-tackle and raise you an All-Pro running back." (End scene)

There is no official word yet that Ray Rice is out of tomorrow's game entirely, but Rice has been listed as doubtful the entire week with a hip flexor. Now Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun is reporting that backup Bernard Pierce will be getting the start against the Texans and that Rice is regarded as having "[a] two-week injury."

Pierce, a third round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, rushed for 57 yards on 19 carries last week against the Browns.
