Pierce left Saturday's game to be evaluated for a concussion, and he did not return to the contest, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Ray Rice suspended for the first two weeks of the regular season, Pierce got the starting nod in Saturday's dress rehearsal. If the injury prevents Pierce from playing in Week 1, the Ravens will likely turn to a combination of Lorenzo Taliaferro and Justin Forsett. However, the opener is still two weeks away, and Pierce has no prior history of concussions in the NFL.
Pierce gained 55 yards on seven carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

In 20 games through Baltimore's Super Bowl run, Pierce averaged an impressive 5.0 YPC spelling Ray Rice. Pierce stayed healthy throughout the season despite his aggressive running style and displayed the burst and power to be an effective lead back should Rice get hurt. Of course, Rice has not missed a single game since his rookie year. It's also possible that at 6-0, 218, the bigger Pierce could steal some of the goal-line work, but Rice converted 8-of-18 carries from inside the 10 last year.

2012

The Ravens spent the 84th pick in the draft on Pierce, who ran for 1,481 yards and 27 touchdowns during his junior year of college. He has good balance and a nose for the end zone but lacks skills as a receiver and isnít overly quick. Baltimore hopes he can replace Ricky Williams as the teamís backup, and while that job wonít entail much if Ray Rice stays healthy, it could have plenty of potential if Rice were to go down. Pierce is an intriguing late round flier.
