ASHBURN, Va. - For the first five seasons of his NFL career, Chris Chester called Baltimore home after he was drafted in the second round in 2006. But after the NFL lockout ended in July 2011, the offensive lineman made the move to the Washington Redskins. It's a decision that the 29-year-old Chester is grateful he made. “I'm really enjoying myself here,” he said after Wednesday's practice. “I had some good friends and some good experiences in Baltimore, but I'm happy to be a Redskin.

Each week we bring you a Q&A with a Ravens player or coach. This week's guest is right guard Chris Chester, a second round pick in the 2006 draft out of Oklahoma who arrived at college a 220-pound tight end — a position he has played with the Ravens, too — but is now a fixture on the offensive line. He's also a laid back Californian who yearns for the beach, listens to Sublime before games and turns to the Bible for inspiration. QUESTION: Who is the most influential person in your life?

We won't know for sure until a new collective bargaining agreement is in place, but Ravens guard Marshal Yanda might be an unrestricted free agent when the NFL reopens business. If that's the case, the Ravens will have plenty of competition for the services of Yanda, a versatile and valuable member of their line. Yanda has started 42 games on the Ravens’ offensive line over the past four seasons, and the mysterious ailment that sidelined Jared Gaither forced the Ravens to move him from right guard to right tackle last season.

It's Sunday morning, not quite 8. Sunlight is peeking through the blinds in the Hyatt Regency Hotel room on Light Street where offensive lineman Marshal Yanda stays before every Ravens home game. His eyes are open. He may try to fall back to sleep, but the nervous energy pulsing through his body will make it tough. It's game day. Kickoff is in five hours. The countdown inside his head has begun. The emotions of game day are different for every NFL player. Some Ravens toss and turn in the hours before they wake, their bodies unable to relax.

Biggest cheer Not that anybody needed a reminder of how much love is thrown in Ray Lewis' direction, but the linebacker drew the loudest applause when he read quarterback Drew Olson's eyes and intercepted the ensuing pass. Scott goes deep Linebacker Bart Scott is re-living his college days when he was a safety at Southern Illinois University. During one play on an 11-on-11 drill, free safety Ed Reed blitzed, and the 6-foot-2, 240-pound Scott showed off some serious speed sprinting back as the deep safety.

As pressed as the Ravens might be about avoiding turnovers, the defense might be nearly as anxious about forcing them. Less than a year removed from forcing opponents into committing 40 turnovers - the third-highest total in franchise history - the Ravens find themselves on the opposite end of the spectrum. The team has registered 18 takeaways this season and is on pace to finish with 22- which would tie the franchise low set in 1996, the organization's inaugural season. "When it goes bad, it's going bad," defensive tackle Kelly Gregg said of a defense that has forced just five turnovers during the team's franchise-record seven-game losing streak.

The Ravens reached deals with four more draft picks - including offensive lineman Chris Chester (second round) and cornerback David Pittman (third) - to continue one of the strongest signing flurries in team history. With eight picks signed or under an agreement in principle, the Ravens have only two draft picks left to get under contract before the team reports to training camp Thursday: Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (first round) and receiver Demetrius Williams (fourth). Besides Chester and Pittman, who got a $490,000 signing bonus, the Ravens agreed to terms with safety Dawan Landry (fifth)

Ravens guards Chris Chester, Ben Grubbs and Matt Birk vs. Bengals MLB Dhani Jones The Ravens are quick and athletic, and will need to be both against Jones. The Ravens have to be able to get to him and cut off his pursuit angles. Jones leads the Bengals in tackles with 153, including 100 solo. He is fast and extremely agile. Edge: Bengals Ravens CB Chris Carr vs. Bengals WR Jordan Shipley Shipley isn't overly big or fast, but he can find holes in a zone defense, especially in the red zone.

The Ravens went old school on Sunday, as running back Ray Rice breathed new life into this team. On a cold, sometimes blustery December day, Rice and the Ravens' offensive line may have provided the missing ingredient for the Ravens in 2010. The Ravens finally played smash-mouth football. Led by offensive tackles Michael Oher, Marshal Yanda, guards Ben Grubbs, Chris Chester and center Matt Birk, the Ravens pounded the New Orleans Saints for 208 yards rushing on the way to a 30-24 victory.

There are no quick fixes for what troubles the Ravens. Their offense hasn't scored a second-half touchdown the past four games and is suffering from a case of mistaken identity. The defense was over-cooked in Houston and now must deal with an even better passing game when the New Orleans Saints arrive Sunday. If not the most troubled 9-4 team in the league, the Ravens are certainly the most inconsistent. What was once their offensive identity — the run game — is now officially an after-thought.

The Ravens opened Monday night's game against the Houston Texans with Oniel Cousins at right tackle and Chris Chester at tight end, but whether the offense returns to that formation this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints is a similar mystery. "You'll have to wait and see," Chester said after Thursday's practice. "It's a week-to-week thing, and the coaches decided that would be a good thing to throw the Texans off. So it's kind of week to week, what we think is best, game plan-wise, against a defense.

The struggles of the Ravens' running game are best summed up in baseball terms. Too many strikeouts, not enough home runs. The disappearance of big plays is the main reason why the Ravens have gone from an explosive rushing attack to a plodding one. Last season, the Ravens produced 18 runs of 20 yards or more. Through 12 games this year, their running backs have managed just four. In 2009, Ray Rice alone had four runs of 50 yards or more. This year, he hasn't broken one longer than 30 yards.

A day after several Pittsburgh Steelers accused Ravens right guard Chris Chester of intentionally trying to injure outside linebacker James Harrison, Chester said the Steelers are misinterpreting what happened. On the play in question in Sunday night's 13-10 loss to Pittsburgh, Chester lined up on the left side of the offensive line for an extra-point attempt. Chester plunged forward before the ball had been snapped and collided with Harrison. Harrison and several of his teammates said that Chester was deliberately aiming for Harrison.
