Ravens | Ray Rice not as involved in 2012

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice has not been as involved offensively so far this season. He is averaging 15.1 carries and 4.1 receptions, in addition to being targeted 6.1 times per game. Last season, Rice averaged 18.2 carries per game and 4.8 receptions while being targeted 6.5 times per game. He had 11 games with at least 20 touches and eight with 25 or more. The team wants Rice to take less of a pounding this season; however, his workload could increase moving forward. Head coach John Harbaugh said he wants the ball in Rice's hands more often. "We want to get the ball in all of our playmakers' hands. We probably didn't do that like we wanted to," Harbaugh said.
