Looking back at it three and a half years later, the 2008 NFL draft produced a strong crop of running backs. Darren McFadden, Matt Forte, Rashard Mendenhall and Jamaal Charles are all starters now. Jonathan Stewart, Tim Hightower, Felix Jones, Tashard Choice and Steve Slaton have each had their moments. And then there are Ray Rice and Chris Johnson, two of the very best runners in the NFL, whose skills will be on display Sunday afternoon when the Ravens travel to Nashville to take on theTennesseeTitans.

Ken Niumatalolo, usually one of the more reserved coaches in college football, went off script in the Navy football team's 42-14 thrashing of South Alabama on Saturday night. Almost midway through the third quarter, the Midshipmen set up to punt on fourth-and-6 from their own 40-yard line. But junior punter Pablo Beltran faked the punt and instead threw to sophomore defensive end Will Anthony for a 15-yard gain and a first down. But officials flagged Navy for an ineligible player downfield.

Tattoos adorn the torso and arms of Ravens reserve cornerback Chris Johnson, covering his body in a mosaic of smiling faces and names. It's Johnson's way of paying tribute to his family, of ensuring that those loved ones remain close to his heart. "This way, they're always a part of you," Johnson said. "They're literally on your skin permanently, just like family is permanent to me. " On the left side of his ribs is a tattoo of a face and two numbers. The face is that of his sister, Jennifer Johnson.

It stuck with me for a couple days,” Johnson said Wednesday.

Through two games, it has been a beast-or-famine season for the Texans' defense. Mostly, the Texans have been impenetrable. The Chargers didn't make a first down on any of their final five possessions (only to go off for 539 yards against the Eagles this past Sunday). The Titans went three-and-out four consecutive times in the third quarter against the Texans, then suffered the indignity of a two-and-out to start the fourth quarter when Joe Mays dumped Chris Johnson for a safety.

Texans 30, Titans 24 Strategy: Led by All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, the Texans have one of the most aggressive and physical 3-4 defensive fronts in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips isn't afraid to blitz and he sent pass rushers in waves at Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker. That style of play puts pressure on his defensive backs to play tight man coverage, something that can be exploited. Offensively, they're the same old Texans, relying on Arian Foster and Ben Tate to carry the ball on zone-blocking runs and rolling out quarterback Matt Schaub on play-action bootlegs.

Cornerback Lardarius Webb continues to make great strides in his return from knee surgery but as expected, he will not play tonight in the Ravens' preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. Webb, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last October, headlines a list of seven Ravens that were pronounced out by the team a little over an hour before kickoff. None of the scratches were particularly surprising. Right guard Marshal Yanda (rotator cuff)

The Ravens decision to re-sign Bryant McKinnie reverses an offseason trend that has seen the roster get younger at several key positions. Before agreeing to a two-year deal with the 33-year-old left tackle, the Ravens were without eight of their nine oldest players from the team that beat the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 3 to capture Super Bowl XLVII. That team had 10 players 31 and over. Even with the return of McKinnie, the Ravens now have only three players 31 and over - McKinnie, cornerback Chris Johnson (33)

Dean Pees likes to joke that he has recently developed a routine before addressing the Ravens' injury-wracked cornerback group on the first full day of practice each week. "Every week, it's like I take attendance in our room to see who shows up," he cracked. Laughs aside, the defensive coordinator and secondary coach Teryl Austin have used glue, string and perhaps a little magic to cobble together a productive cornerback corps despite losing Lardarius Webb for the season in October and getting limited production from Jimmy Smith.

Go for the running backs Matt Vensel Baltimore Sun There might be a temptation to take Eagles quarterback Michael Vick early in your fantasy draft — the Michael Vick experience is a bigger thrill when he's on your team — but the first three players off the board should be running backs. Adrian Peterson was a top-three fantasy back in each of the last three seasons, averaging 1,480 rushing yards and 14 total touchdowns during that span. Even though there are questions about Donovan McNabb and the passing game, the Vikings back is a lock to make it four seasons in a row. There's something to be said for having that kind of security.

The absence of inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and tight end Ed Dickson from Wednesday's practice isn't shocking. But cornerback Corey Graham was also not present during the portion of practice open to the media. Graham was not reported to have suffered an injury in the aftermath of the Ravens' 16-13 overtime win against the San Diego Chargers this past Sunday. His absence might not be serious, but if Graham is unavailable, the defense may have to turn to either Chris Johnson or Chykie Brown to start against the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday.
