Both were limited participants this week, listed as questionable heading into the regular season finale between the Bengals and Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith and running back Ray Rice will play this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network.

Smith and Rice have been dealing with thigh injuries and were limited participants this week. There was little doubt that either would play, despite being listed as questionable this weekend.

The game is too important for the Ravens, who need a win plus a loss by the Miami Dolphins or San Diego Chargers to clinch the final postseason berth. Baltimore can still clinch a spot with a loss, but require the Dolphins, Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers to suffer defeats as well.

As for the Bengals, the belief is that Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham are game-day decisions. Expect Cincinnati, despite having a "win at all costs" mentality this weekend, to be more conservative with their injured players so that they're healthy (well, healthier) for the playoffs.
