Rice OK to play vs. Patriots; Ravens to welcome back Reed

A knee injury that limited Ray Rice in practice this week won't prevent the Baltimore Ravens running back from playing Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Rice, whom the Ravens listed as probable on their injury report, told NFL Network insider Albert Breer that he is "100 percent playing. And starting." Rice hasn't missed a game this season despite dealing with the injury since Week 3.

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata also will play, Breer reported, after being deemed questionable with a knee injury.

The Ravens' secondary also should receive a boost next week. Six-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed, who's recovering from offseason hip surgery, said he has been "cleared to move around" and start practicing, according to Breer. Reed is eligible to come off the physically unable to perform list after Sunday's game.
