Contrary to an earlier report, Ravens running back Ray Rice will be active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.Fantasy Spin:ESPN's Adam Schefter had reported Rice would be out but now he's hearing that Rice will play one or two series before coming out of the game.

The Baltimore Ravens are locked in to a playoff spot and cannot earn a first-round bye with a win today.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Ravens will rest running back Ray Rice.
