RB Pierce Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

Bernard Pierce

Ravens backup running back Bernard Pierce underwent successful right shoulder surgery Wednesday at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia to repair his rotator cuff, his agent told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Pierce is expected to require four to five months of rehabilitation and is expected to make a full recovery.

Dr. J. Milo Sewards, a specialist in arthroscopic shoulder reconstruction and the director of the orthopedic residency program at Temple, performed the procedure.

Pierce is a 2012 third-round draft pick from Temple who dealt with several injuries last season, including his shoulder, hamstring, knee and toe, while rushing for 436 yards and two touchdowns. Pierce averaged 2.9 yards per carry. He caught 20 passes for 104 yards.
