"He's definitely in good shape," Flacco said of Rice at the end of minicamp in June. "I don't know if he's any quicker or anything like that; you'll have to ask him. I can say he definitely looks good and he's running the ball well. Our guys are creating some room out there even with no pads on."
Rice struggled throughout the 2013 season with hip and quadricep injuries, which hindered his ability to juke defenders and break tackles. Although Rice played in all 16 games last season, his numbers took a significant dip, dropping from 1,143 rushing yards and 4.4 yards per carry in 2012 to just 660 yards and 3.1 yards per carry last season.
