Ravens backup running back Bernard Pierce suffered a sprained left knee Thursday, with a magnetic resonance imaging exam revealing no structural damage, according to a source.

Pierce got hurt when he was hit after reaching the end zone following a 20-yard touchdown run during the Ravens' 44-16 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The outlook for Pierce is regarded as positive, but could likely sideline him for a few days.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh declined to provide an update on Pierce or wide receiver Deonte Thompson, who injured his left foot/ankle against Tampa Bay and was in a soft boot following the game. Neither player practiced today, and it remains unclear how long Thompson will be sidelined.

"No comment on any injury situation," Harbaugh said. "If something's serious, I'll let you know. I'm not going to get into every little nick and bruise that happens. If it's serious, I'll let you know."
