Ravens RB Bernard Pierce back at practice

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce @BPierce_30 returned to practice Saturday after sustaining a concussion in the Ravens' third preseason game last weekend. Pierce has progressed through the concussion protocols and will be in the Ravens' lineup for their Week 1 game against the Bengals. Pierce is expected to start the first two games of the season with RB Ray Rice @RayRice27 out due to suspension.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is good news for Pierce owners. While he was always expected to be ready for Week 1, that is now confirmed by his presence on the practice field. Pierce has a chance to prove himself worthy of an even split with Rice by his performance in the first two games of the season. His first chance comes next Sunday against the Bengals, and that will not be an easy matchup. The Bengals' defense ranked fifth in the NFL in rushing yards allowed last season. Pierce is a borderline RB2 option for Week 1.
