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.

Jaguars declared RB Bernard Pierce, RB Joe Banyard, SLB Dan Skuta, DT Michael Bennett, C/G Luke Bowanko, S Craig Loston, and WR Neal Sterling inactive for Week 12 against the Chargers.

Pierce has a calf injury, and Skuta is sidelined with a groin issue.

Bernard Pierce left Sunday's Week 5 game against the Bucs with a concussion.

He did not return to the game. Pierce had two carries for six yards behind T.J. Yeldon before exiting.

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.

Bernard Pierce rushed just once for two yards in the Ravens' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots, drawing zero targets in the passing game.

With everything on the line for the Ravens, Pierce found himself behind Fitzgerald Toussaint on the depth chart. Toussaint touched the ball three times, while starter Justin Forsett got the rock on 26 occasions. Coming off a regular season where he averaged 3.9 yards per carry, Pierce got the ball exactly two times across two playoff games. Even with Forsett's Ravens future up in the air, Pierce may not even keep his 2015 roster spot, let alone earn Baltimore's starting job. His dynasty stock has crashed.

Bernard Pierce had a five-yard touchdown in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Steelers.

It was his only carry of the game. Pierce saw limited snaps behind Justin Forsett, but managed to vulture a touchdown in the second quarter. Despite scoring this week, he isn't a major threat for goal-line work in the Divisional Round and will continue to play a backup role.
Sun, Jan 4, 2015 12:17:00 AM

Bernard Pierce rushed six times for eight yards Week 17 against the Browns.

Pierce was stuffed twice at the goal line early in the game, and could get nothing going despite playing the worst run defense in the league. Expected to carry the load with Ray Rice suspended, Pierce was eventually beat out by journeyman back Justin Forsett and even lost work to the likes of Lorenzo Taliaferro and Fitzgerald Toussaint. Pierce's team-friendly contract will keep him will keep him on Baltimore's roster through the offseason, but the slow-footed back may need a solid summer to stick through final cuts.

Bernard Pierce played behind Fitzgerald Toussaint in Sunday's Week 16 loss at Houston.

Pierce has really fallen from grace this season. Expected to shine as the lead back for Gary Kubiak after Ray Rice's dismissal, Pierce instead lost work to the likes of Lorenzo Taliaferro and Toussaint. It's notable with Justin Forsett's ankle gimpy once again.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 09:33:00 AM

Bernard Pierce (back) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Pierce will be ready to roll as Justin Forsett's caddie. Dependent on random touchdowns, Pierce is not a viable RB3.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 05:15:00 PM

Bernard Pierce rushed for 37 yards on six carries in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

Pierce saw more snaps with Lorenzo Taliaferro hurt and inactive. He isn't a fantasy option.
