COLLEGE PARK - As they prepare for No. 8 Florida State, Maryland's coaches have studied video of Jameis Winston completing 25 of his first 27 college passes and film of the Seminoles quarterback twice bolting away from pressure last week to complete a ridiculously athletic Hail Mary against Boston College. What the coaches may not have seen are the redshirt freshman's other exploits - such as his moonshot throw over a fraternity house roof on a dare, or his impressively varied baseball skills - that have fans already likening him to Bo Jackson.

The right hip fracture and dislocation Dennis Pitta suffered Saturday is an extremely rare injury for an NFL player and will force the standout Ravens tight end to miss the entire 2013-14 season. But it shouldn't jeopardize his career, according to leading orthopedics and sports medicine experts contacted by The Baltimore Sun this week. "With a professional athlete like Dennis, his rehabilitation protocol should allow for him to return to full capability by next season," said Dr. Derek Ochiai, an orthopedic hip surgeon based in Arlington, Va. "I would expect him to be ready by the middle of [next]

Bo Jackson, out of baseball?Baltimore Orioles manager Frank Robinson sat in his hotel room in Sarasota, Fla., last night and tried to digest the news. Thetone of his voice suggested something close to disbelief."I'm shocked," Robinson said. "This is something out of the clear blue. You don't expect Bo Jackson to be released. I know he had an injury. But you always had the feeling that Bo Jackson was indestructible."The news was so surprising, in fact, that Orioles officials said it was too soon to say whether they would be interested in signing Jackson to a contract.

CHICAGO -- Bo Jackson, having already come further than many medical experts thought possible, will take the next step in his return from a disabling hip injury Saturday night when he begins a rehabilitation assignment with the Sarasota White Sox, Chicago's Class A affiliate in the Florida State League.Jackson will serve as designated hitter Saturday and Sunday in Sarasota, then move to his hometown, Birmingham, Ala., Monday to become designated hitter for the Double A Barons."The more people who told him he couldn't do it, the easier it made my job," said White Sox trainer Herm Schneider, who oversaw Jackson's three-hour-a-day workouts.

Bo knows therapyA boy who suffered brain damage in a traffic accident got the best therapy he could imagine -- a telephone call from his hero, Bo Jackson.The baseball-football star learned from a counselor at Valley Children's Hospital in Fresno, Calif., that 10-year-old Joe Stillman is one of his biggest fans, but is recovering from severe injuries. The boy was in a coma for more than a month after being hit by a car as he walked in a crosswalk near his home in Oakdale, Calif., on May 20.Jackson took time out from his rehabilitation from a hip injury Sunday to telephone his young fan.Rehabilitation therapists had used his interest in Jackson to motivate Stillman, but the wide grin on his face showed that a telephone call from his hero was the best therapy of all."

As soon as the ball leaves Bo Jackson's bat, Merrick Munday is a marked man.He's sitting in the right-center-field bleachers enjoying the game, oblivious to his fate as Jackson's fly ball arcs over Camden Yards toward him. Munday has no idea he's about to become the target of scorn, meat for the bleacher crowd determined to enshrine a ballpark ritual: throwing back enemy home run balls.Jackson's fifth-inning shot travels about 400 feet, a three-run homer that blows last Thursday's game open for the California Angels.

CHICAGO -- This is Sam from Downer's Grove, and Gene Lamont is an idiot.This is Jeff from Evanston, and Gene Lamont ought to take a long walk on a long pier.This is Mike from the South Side and I just want to ask Gene Lamont one question. What was going on in your brain, man?Chicago's red-hot sports-talk radio rivalry will be shrieking with indignation this week. The three stations that rabidly chew every sport into bits in this town will be running with this one for all it is worth.And while the Bears, the Bulls, the Cubs and the other teams that get Chicagoans all worked up will sit this one out, there is one thing they can all be happy about.

TORONTO - Maybe all the Chicago White Sox needed was a little controversy to get into contention in the American League Championship Series.After manager Gene Lamont had been stung two days in a row by biting criticism from two of his least productive players, the White Sox revived their dormant offense.Ellis Burks and Lance Johnson each drove in two runs in a five-run third inning and Tim Raines chipped in with four hits as the White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-1, here last night. Overall, the White Sox fashioned a 12-hit attack to back up a strong pitching performance by Wilson Alvarez.

It was billed as Day One of All-Star Week, and the Chicago White Sox held up their end of the billing.Unfortunately for the home folks, the same could not be said for the Orioles, who spent a couple of hours giving the appearance of being at a Little League tryout.On a night when nothing went right, especially their latest defensive experiment, the Orioles were soundly beaten in every phase of the game, and the White Sox pounded Rick Sutcliffe en route to a 12-5 victory.Mark McLemore, playing third base in the big leagues for the first time since 1990, made a costly error on his only chance of the game, and the White Sox were ahead by a touchdown before the Orioles came to bat for the first time.

CHICAGO -- They had come early, and it was a good thing. They got to watch Bo Jackson take batting practice, sweeping at baseballs as if he were holding a broom, not a bat, then making the ball fly out of sight.The two little boys couldn't stay still because they wanted to sneak under the railing and ask Bo about his shoes and what Bo knows and will he ever play football again."Bo's the guy with the fake hip, you know," one little boy said to the other. "It's all metal and stuff and if he slides wrong that thing might break all apart and come through his skin and stuff.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The worst moment came not when he ran to first, although that was enough to break your heart. Bo had slashed an RBI single to left, and how he keeps hitting -- he's 4-for-7 this spring, playing virtually without legs -- no one can tell.Usually, they just say it's Bo, as if that explains it. Or, more reasonably, they say that this exotic dance with pain continues to be a small miracle.Anyway, Bo ran to first, except you couldn't really call it running. It was more a sad parody of running, as his legs struggled to keep pace with his body.
