  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Inks extension

    Pierce and the Ravens agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million extension Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The 31-year-old has spent six of his seven years in the NFL with the Ravens, and he'll remain in Baltimore through the 2025 season after inking an extension Saturday. Pierce has been having one of the best seasons of his career thus far, appearing in all 16 of the Ravens' games and recording 36 total tackles, including 1.0 sacks, while also deflecting two passes. Expect the 355-pound nose tackle to continue being a major part of Baltimore's run defense for years to come.

  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Avoids injury report Tuesday

    Pierce (neck) was not listed on Baltimore's injury report Tuesday.

    Pierce's absence from the injury report Tuesday suggests he'll be available for Saturday's game versus the Steelers. However, with the AFC's top seed already locked up, the Ravens could choose to rest their starters in Week 18.

  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Questionable to return

    Pierce (neck) is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a stinger.

    Pierce's stinger is described as in his neck and shoulder area. Given the nature of the game, it would seem unnecessary for him to return if his health is not up to par. While he is sidelined, Travis Jones is the likely candidate to replace him at nose tackle.

  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Gets first sack Sunday

    Pierce had five tackles (four solo) including a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Cardinals.

    Pierce had a 15-yard strip sack on Joshua Dobbs in the third quarter that was recovered by the Cardinals but forced them to punt the ball away. It was Pierce's first sack since the 2021 season against the Steelers on Dec. 9. He played 43 defensive snaps Sunday, which is the third game this season that he's played 40-plus snaps on defense.

  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Back on field

    Pierce (biceps/elbow), who finished last season on injured reserve, has been spotted working out during Ravens' voluntary OTAs, Jonathan Alfano of SI.com reports.

    After opting out of the 2020 NFL season due to COVID-19-related concerns, the veteran defensive lineman appeared in just 11 games over the past two seasons with elbow and bicep injuries. Pierce said that he's feeling healthy once again, and if so, the 6-foot, 340-pounder should reprise his typical run-stuffing role at nose tackle in 2023. Between stops in Baltimore and Minnesota during his career, Pierce has appeared in 71 games and has tallied 177 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks.

  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Undergoes season-ending surgery

    Pierce (biceps) is undergoing season-ending surgery Thursday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

    Pierce faced a decision between attempting to rehab and return this year or get season-ending surgery, and he's ultimately decided to go under the knife. As a result of getting surgery to address his torn bicep, the nose tackle will now eye a return during the 2023 campaign. Rookie third-round pick Travis Jones will likely start in Pierce's stead versus the Bills on Sunday.

  • Ravens' Michael Pierce: Decision ahead

    Pierce (biceps) is debating whether to have season-ending surgery, or to rehab and play through the injury according to head coach John Harbaugh, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Pierce suffered a torn bicep in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Patriots. He was scheduled to undergo further testing Wednesday, which will likely aid him in making that decision. If Pierce opts to rehab and play though the injury, it is unclear how much time, if any, he'll miss.
