NFL Playoffs, Ravens Vs. Steelers: Ray Rice Sick, Vomiting On Friday

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is reportedly dealing with an illness ahead of Saturdays NFL playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. According to ESPN’s Bob Holtzman, Rice fell ill Friday afternoon and was vomiting at the team hotel shortly thereafter. With a 4:30 p.m. date with the Steelers at Heinz Field looming, it’s unknown whether whatever Rice is dealing with will affect his status for the game.

Rice rushed for 1,200 yards on the season, but was held in check both times the Ravens played the Steelers. In the first meeting, he tallied just 20 yards on eight carries. The second time around was marginally better, with Rice carrying the ball nine times for 32 yards and catching two passes for another 18 yards. In the Ravens playoff win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the wildcard round, Rice rushed for 57 yards and caught five passes for 42 yards and a touchdown.

The Ravens face the Steelers, and their top-ranked run defense, on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on CBS.
