He admits he's strictly an amateur and rides just for fun.What's more, he didn't pay a small fortune for his horse. Gesticulate cost $1, even though he is sired by 1976 Preakness winner Elocutionist and had been a good winner in high-priced claimers.

COLLEGE PARK - Nothing has been said. Deon Long has just seen the unmistakable looks of disgust Maryland coach Randy Edsall gives him whenever Long makes a mistake. The wide receiver said he was better and sharper Wednesday compared to the first two sessions of preseason practice for the Terrapins. But even he acknowledged that he has had a lackluster start to camp. Long uncharacteristically dropped passes during the first two practices. He jumped offsides twice Monday and Tuesday, which drew some of those looks from Edsall.

The afternoon before his first practice, Ravens running back Musa Smith did not sound like someone who expected to play this season. That was three weeks ago, and since then, Smith has discovered that cutting, accelerating and taking a hit on his formerly broken leg is not as bad as he anticipated. As a result, the Ravens activated Smith from the physically-unable-to-perform list yesterday. Smith is expected to play on special teams Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Smith takes the roster spot of quarterback Kordell Stewart, who was released.

Already adjusting to life without a pair of starters in senior midfielder Ryan Clarke and junior defenseman Danny Sherr, No. 9 Salisbury suffered another blow when second-line midfielder Adam Stork broke his leg during practice Tuesday. Stork, who has registered three goals and one assists in the team's last two contests, joins Clarke (ruptured spleen) and Sherr (foot) on the list of players whose seasons have been cut short by injuries. It's a bewildering stretch of ailments for the Sea Gulls, who have captured the last two national titles and 10 in all. “It's definitely frustrating,” coach Jim Berkman said Wednesday morning.

It's taken nothing short of a broken leg and a bout with mononucleosis to slow Winters Mill running back Garrett Hill this season. Despite experiencing his share of adversity over the past five months, Hill has emerged as one of the county's best runners. Although he has missed three games, Hill entered last Friday's playoff game against Francis Scott Key second in the county in rushing with 841 yards and he is averaging a county-leading 7.5 yards a carry. The senior suffered a broken leg while playing lacrosse last summer.

In a grotesquely uproarious scene in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," King Arthur slices off the Black Knight's left arm at the shoulder, and a flood of blood pours from the wound. Understandably, Arthur presumes the fight is over. Not so fast, says the now one-armed Black Knight. " 'Tis but a scratch," he declares, ready to resume battle. "I've had worse." NFL games often seem like that scene. In almost any game, announcers mention players manning their positions despite broken or dislocated limbs, cracked ribs, sprained ligaments or assorted other wreckage.

After he broke his left leg in Stevenson's 7-2 loss to Salisbury in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament on May 20, the most optimistic timetable had Stephen Banick returning in October. That timeline has now been pushed back. The sophomore attackman - who led the Mustangs in goals (36) and points (63) - still hasn't been cleared for full participation, and coach Paul Cantabene said it's possible that Banick may miss the entire season. “There's a good chance he might miss the season,” Cantabene conceded.

When Maryland lacrosse coach Cathy Reese talks about this season, one of the adjectives that comes up the most is "weird. " The defending national champions have maintained the No. 1 ranking all season and are favored to win their 11th NCAA title this weekend, but they have had to overcome a plethora of injuries and illness — and not just the nagging, everyday kind that plague a lot of teams. Before the season started, senior midfielder Laura Merrifield came down with shingles and missed the first four games.

An Anne Arundel County deputy sheriff's leg was broken in a courtroom scuffle with a teen who deputies said refused to stop texting on his cell phone despite warnings that its use was banned in court. The incident is prompting officials to look again at the court's cell phone policy, which generally allows people to take cell phones into the Circuit Court building and use them everywhere except courtrooms. A poster-size notice in courtrooms tells people to turn off their phones. On Wednesday, deputies repeatedly told a person in the courtroom to put away his phone, but he refused and profanely started to tell off a deputy, Sheriff Ronald S. Bateman said.

Louisville, Ky. -- Dr. Larry Bramlage, the on-call veterinarian at Churchill Downs for Kentucky Derby weekend, revised his initial diagnosis on the Michael Matz-trained Chelokee yesterday. The horse, injured when he took a misstep in a Grade III race here on a sloppy track, did not break his leg. "There was a lot of swelling immediately after the injury," Bramlage said. "When you see an injury like that, you immediately think there is a fracture. But in this case, it was not a fracture but a dislocation."

Don't get conservative now. With fantasy football playoffs starting this weekend or next for most leagues, that's the best general advice I can give to owners. I've seen many fantasy players compile solid records by astutely playing week-to-week matchups only to freeze and decide they have to ride their most established guys in the playoffs. In football, nothing is the same one week as it was the week before. A guy can look great running behind a healthy line against a shaky defensive front.
