Ray Rice didn't run the ball much in the preseason, when he had just 10 carries for 46 yards.
He'll get more touches when the regular season opens for the Ravens vs. the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night.
But that could mean fewer rushing and more in the passing attack as the Ravens are expected to play at a faster pace and throw more.
"I always felt that as a running back, youll evolve with the change. And being that Ive caught the ball really well, and I think I fit well with this offense ... whether its running the ball (or) passing," Rice said. "A catch to me is a long hand-off. Eventually youve got to make hay with that, and whether its 15 rushes, 10 catches, I just think as long as Im fitting the game plan a certain way Ill be fine.
Rice led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage last season. He had 291 rushes for 1,364 yards and 76 catches, a team high, for 704 yards.
Then again, with the emergence of Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss and the addition of Jacoby Jones, maybe Rice won't have as many receptions.
"Usually, throughout the week tells it all. If it looks good in practice, were going to run it in the game," Rice said.
