Bernard Pierce a surprise inactive for Baltimore

The Ravens have scratched running back Bernard Pierce from Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Pierce has been the No. 2 runner in Baltimore's backfield in recent weeks, but has averaged less than three yards per carry the past two weeks. It looks like he's a healthy scratch for Sunday's game as a result.

Lorenzo Taliaferro will step in as Baltimore's primary backup running back behind Justin Forsett.
