Free agent RB Bernard Pierce worked out for the Jets on Wednesday.

Matt Forte (knee) and Bilal Powell (knee) were both absent from practice on Wednesday and the Jets lost Khiry Robinson to a broken leg in Week 16. That leaves rookie Brandon Wilds as the Jets' only healthy backfield option. Pierce has worked out for the Seahawks and Broncos in recent weeks but hasn't latched on anywhere. He spent a few weeks with the Jets in training camp before being cut in mid-August.

NFL suspended free agent RB Bernard Pierce for the first two weeks of 2016.

Pierce was limited to seven games before landing on I.R. last year. He hasn't had any known free-agent interest from teams this offseason. Already running out of chances, Pierce's suspension puts his career in serious doubt.

Jaguars placed RB Bernard Pierce on injured reserve with a calf injury, ending his season.

Pierce hasn't played in weeks, and the Jaguars needed the roster spot to sign LB Joplo Bartu. Pierce played 29 offensive snaps this season, carrying the ball six times for a measly 11 yards. He's running out of NFL chances.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco reports RB Bernard Pierce is making a strong push for playing time.

"His toughness and his work ethic and mentality I think has been great," coach Gus Bradley said. "I heard good things but it's been even better." Pierce has a career 3.77 YPC average and was cut by the Ravens in March after being arrested for drunk driving. The Jaguars have better options at running back.

Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce's court date for his DUI case has been pushed back to July 28.

Pierce was pulled over on March 18 for driving 55 mph in a 30-mph zone. He admitted to drinking "three shots of Jack" before failing a series of field sobriety tests. The Ravens cut Pierce shortly after the incident, but the Jaguars surprisingly claimed him off waivers. A plodder who offers nothing in the passing game, Pierce will compete with second-year RB Storm Johnson for a roster spot in training camp.

Jaguars claimed RB Bernard Pierce off waivers from the Ravens.

It's a surprising move, as Pierce's release came after he was arrested for drunk driving, while he's been horrendous each of the past two seasons. The Jags also already have a plodding inside runner in Toby Gerhart. Pierce is the owner of a career 3.77 YPC, and offers nothing in the passing game. He'll face an uphill climb to crack the Jags' 53-man roster.

Ravens waived RB Bernard Pierce.

Pierce was busted for DUI overnight after getting pulled over for going 55 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. He failed field sobriety tests and was taken to jail before being released into Browns RB Terrance West's custody earlier this morning. Three Ravens have been arrested this offseason, and all three have been cut in short order. Pierce has averaged just 3.27 YPC on his last 245 carries the past two seasons and brings nothing to the table in the passing game.

Bernard Pierce was arrested for driving under the influence early Wednesday morning in Baltimore.

Pierce was pulled over for speeding around 2 AM before failing field sobriety tests. As a first-time offender, Pierce was released into custody of a "responsible party" who picked him up from jail. Coming off a horrific season that saw Pierce rush for just 373 yards and average 3.9 YPC, his roster spot was already in question. The Ravens have shown a zero-tolerance policy this offseason.
