Bernard (ribs) was limited at practice for a third straight day Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, the Bengals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While the expectation is that Bernard will be a go this weekend, his owners will want to verify that as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches. To date, Bernard has racked up 81 carries in nine games, compared to Benjarvus Green-Ellis' total of 131. At some point, we'd expect that the explosive Bernard's touches will increase, especially after his nine-carry, 79-yard rushing effort in Week 9 that resulted in a pair of TDs. Given his current rib woes, though, the Bengals may not able to advance that concept in Week 10.
Though he conceded that Bernard (ribs) could see more touches down the road, Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden is happy with the current division of playing time at running back, ESPN.com reports. "Eventually, he might get more," Gruden said. "We'll see how it goes, but I'm fine with [the current rotation]."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Bernard has clearly made a strong case to see more work, the Bengals like what Benjarvus Green-Ellis offers as a solid pass blocker and tough between-the-tackles runner. The two backs will likely continue to split playing time, so long as both remain healthy. As for Bernard's ribs, the rookie was limited in practice both Wednesday and Thursday. He's seemingly on track to play in Sunday's game against the Ravens, though fantasy owners will still want to check back in at some point prior to Sunday's 1 PM ET kickoff.

2014

2013

The 37th overall pick – and first RB selected this year – Bernard has extremely quick feet and the vision and burst to break runs outside. Bernard's also a natural receiver out of the backfield and, as such, is likely to see plenty of third-down work. He'll likely begin the year as a change-of-pace runner and complement to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, but has the tools to be a productive three-down back should Green-Ellis miss time.
