Marianes did a "halfway back-flip" and landed squarely on her head, resulting in a concussion. "I couldn't read or open my eyes for four days," Marianes said. "I'd just lay in bed crying. " As Baltimore's social sports leagues continue to grow, so do the number of injuries associated with them.

RADFORD, Va. -- Lucy Gilmore swam to the end of her heat, touched the wall and turned to look at the scoreboard at the Dedmon Center at Radford University. The news was good: Her two broken ribs had not kept her from setting an American record. "It's exciting," said Gilmore, 21, a College of Notre Dame junior with McCune-Albright syndrome, a rare disability. McCune-Albright affects the growth of children, mostly girls, and causes polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, the development of abnormal fibrous tissue in bones.

Lawyers for the juveniles and the state attorney general's office say they plan to file papers today in U.S. District Court in Baltimore asking a judge to approve the class action settlement. The agreement could bring an end to all legal issues surrounding a particularly harsh episode in Maryland's juvenile justice program.

The Ravens' worst fears about Dennis Pitta were confirmed Tuesday when further testing revealed that the third-year tight end broke a bone in his right hand during Monday's practice. Pitta, who caught 40 passes for 306 yards and three touchdowns last season while emerging as one of quarterback Joe Flacco's most trusted targets, had surgery Tuesday and will likely miss the rest of the preseason. The good news is the timetable for his return is four to six weeks, meaning he still has a realistic chance of playing in the season opener Sept.

Cornell attackman Rob Pannell sustained a broken bone in his left foot and left during the third quarter against Army on Saturday. He won't play against Canisius tonight, sources close to the situation said. Pannell had surgery Monday to repair the damage and, while a timeline for his return has yet to be clarified, this type of repair typically sidelines athletes for at least six weeks, a source said. Perhaps most significantly, Pannell will not be lost for the season, contrary to widespread rumors.

At his weekly news conference Tuesday in College Park, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall said that injured quarterback Danny O'Brien would need about 12 weeks to recover from a broken bone in his left arm suffered in last Saturday's 45-21 loss to Notre Dame at FedEx Field. Edsall said he expected O'Brien to be back in the spring competing for the starting job with C.J. Brown. But later, when asked about speculation that O'Brien might transfer after graduating in the spring, Edsall made an interesting comment that is bound to stir things up among the Maryland faithful - and maybe in O'Brien's family.

Researchers have long known that as women age their risk of developing osteoporosis -- a loss of bone mass that can lead to brittle or broken bones -- increases dramatically. And for years women were told that the condition could be prevented if they started drinking milk and lifting weights while still in their teens. Now a new report suggests it's never too late to begin working out, and that seniors who do can significantly reduce their risk of broken bones and fractures.Osteoporosis, a thinning of the bones that often accompanies aging, especially in women, causes some 1.5 million fractures every year.

The North Laurel day care provider charged in the November death of a 15-month-old child has been accused in a lawsuit of injuring another infant two years ago, causing spinal damage and broken bones.Jeffrey Loh alleges in the suit that he picked up his 9-month-old daughter Caitlin from the home day care center run by Kathleen A. Butcher in December 1997 and noticed she "was pale and listless." The girl did not improve during the next day, so her parents took her to a hospital, where doctors found broken bones in "her left hand, a damaged spine, nerve damage in both hands," the lawsuit says.

Millions of American women are being diagnosed with osteopenia, which is not truly a disease, and many are being told to take medication they may not need to prevent broken bones they might never suffer. At the same time, millions of others are never properly diagnosed or treated for osteoporosis, a serious condition that can lead to potentially devastating fractures. The widespread confusion about what degree of bone loss really is a red flag for future broken bones and what is simply a sign of normal aging has been rampant since in 1994.
