Ray Rice officially questionable; Cody, Jensen are doubtful for Sunday

Ravens star running back Ray Rice is officially listed as questionable on the injury report with a strained left hip flexor, denoting that there's a 50-percent chance he plays Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Rice practiced all three days on a limited basis without a setback and missed the last game against the Houston Texans.


"We stand by the fact that we're hoping he'll get there," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He's got a better chance than he had last week. He has practiced, to an extent, throughout the course of the week, and we'll know on Sunday."

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley was added to the injury report as questionable with a groin injury. He practiced on a limited basis.

Backup nose tackle Terrence Cody (sprained left knee) and center Ryan Jensen (foot surgery) are listed as doubtful and could just as well be ruled out. Cody could be sidelined longer than this week.

Wide receiver Marlon Brown participated fully all three days and is probable with a neck injury.

The Bills ruled out cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore (wrist) and Ron Brooks (foot), defensive end Alex Carrington (quadriceps), wide receiver Marquise Goodin (hand) and kicker Dustin Hopkins (right groin).

Free safety Jairus Byrd (foot) is questionable as well as cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring)
