Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (shoulder) said he has been fully cleared following his rotator cuff surgery in the offseason. Pierce also said he is down to 223 pounds.

FANTASY TIP: As previously stated, Pierce will be a nice sleeper option when RB Ray Rice is eventually suspended. The full clearance and lost weight are all positives as training camp begins.
