News: Pierce (concussion) is practicing Saturday, the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: Pierce suffered a mild concussion during last Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins, and all reports since have indicated that he'll likely play in the Ravens' opener. With Ray Rice suspended for the first two weeks of the season, Pierce figures to start and get most of the touches in Week 1 against the Bengals and Week 2 against the Steelers. Should he impress, Pierce may have a larger role than previously expected upon Rice's return to the offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce (concussion) is not playing in Thursday's preseason finale against the Saints. Impact: Pierce probably wouldn't have played even if he were healthy, as he's expected to start in place of Ray Rice (suspension) in Weeks 1 and 2. Pierce has insisted that he'll be fine for the start of the season, but with even mild concussions somewhat unpredictable, his practice status will be worth keeping an eye on. In the unlikely event that Pierce can't play, the Ravens will turn to journeyman Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce, who suffered a mild concussion in Saturday's preseason game, didn't practice Monday, the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: The report notes that Pierce is "feeling a lot better" as of Monday, though he'll need to take and pass a mandatory baseline neurological test in order to be cleared for a return to the field. With that in mind, Pierce probably won't play in Thursday's preseason finale, though the fact that his concussion is being portrayed as mild suggests that he should recover in time to fill in as the Ravens' starting running back while Ray Rice serves a two-game suspension to start the regular season.(RotoWire, )

News: Pierce is downplaying the head injury that he sustained in Saturday night's preseason game against Washington, Baltimore Sun reports. "If anyone was wondering, I'm fine," he relayed Sunday via his official Twitter account. Impact: While the report notes that the running back experienced minor concussion symptoms Saturday after absorbing a high tackle, he's expected to be ready for the Ravens' Week 1 contest against the Bengals. Assuming that's the case, Pierce is in line to start at running back for the team out of the gate, with teammate Ray Rice slated to serve a two-game suspension to start the season.(RotoWire, )

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