Ray Rice will play, but only for a few series

There has been a late audible with the Ravens' plans for their starters.

Running back Ray Rice will now be active but he will only play for a series or two, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Rice was originally going to be scratched for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

Entering today, Rice has played in 63 straight games, which is tied for the third-longest streak on the Ravens. Only punter Sam Koch (111 games) and quarterback Joe Flacco (79) have longer streaks for Baltimore.
