Comments Off on Ray Rice: I Should Have Thought Twice About Playing Through Injury

To say Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice had a down season would be an understatement.

Rice battled injuries while running behind a largely ineffective offensive line, and the outcome was his worst season as a pro, and a Ravens team who didn’t even make the playoffs.

Rice told Fox Sports that he should have thought twice about trying to play through all his injuries.

I played through an injury and I probably should have thought twice about it, but I’m glad I was able to push through the season and not have any surgical procedures,” Rice said, via FOXSports.com. “One thing I know my body needed was rest, and we had a tough turnaround, and we didn’t do what we wanted to this year, but I’m positive that things are looking better for next year already. … I was good enough to go, but I was limited with the things that I could do. That’s never been me. That’s something as a pro you have to weigh the good and the bad. For me it didn’t work out in my favor this year, but I’ll be smarter.”

Rice posted career lows in yards (660), average yards per carry (3.1) and touchdowns (4).
