Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice had a huge drop in production during the 2013 season and that was largely due to his decision to play through a hip injury. Rice told Ross Jones of FOX Sports that he "should have thought twice" about attempting to play through the injury. "As a professional athlete, you're never 100 percent. I was good enough to go, but I was limited with the things that I could do. That's never been me. That's something as a pro you have to weigh the good and the bad. For me it didn't work out in my favor this year, but I'll be smarter." Rice, 27, finished with 660 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 2013 behind an offensive line that struggled to pave the way. Both marks were the worst since his rookie season, and he finished with 3.1 yards per carry, his first season under 4.0.
