Knee surgery for McGahee
Posted Aug. 11 at 02:58 AM
Rutgers running back Ray Rice looked like he fell into an unfortunate situation when he was drafted by the Ravens in the second round last April. Baltimore, after all, already had a feature back in Willis McGahee, so Rice probably wouldn't play much his rookie season.
Rice, however, could conceivably open the season as a starter after McGahee underwent knee surgery. The Ravens believe he'll be ready for the start of the season, but they're not certain. With a 2- to 4-week timetable, there's a chance he could miss the opener against the Bengals. If nothing else, you'd think Rice would get a larger share of the workload with McGahee just a month removed from surgery.
Clearly, Rice has immediately gone from mere McGahee handcuff to possibly a significant player this season. Rice was a workhorse in college, putting up over 2,200 yards and 25 TDs a junior last season.
