Backup cornerback Chykie Brown built a reputation for reliability late last season, and the Ravens now regard him as an ascending young player. A speedy 2011 fifth-round draft pick from Texas, Brown recorded a career-high 17 tackles, seven pass deflections and a dozen special-teams tackles last season as the Ravens won the Super Bowl . "I see how NFL games go, and it built a lot of confidence in me," Brown said. "I feel like I can play with anybody now. My strengths are my recovery speed, my ability to play press coverage.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars of the game when the Ravens host the Carolina Panthers in the first and possibly only "Blood and Guts" Bowl. 1. Wide receiver Steve Smith Who else could it be? Any fairly educated guess as to who's the difference in this game must include the former Panthers wide receiver for several reasons, not the least of which is because he holds a big grudge against Carolina.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees recently acknowledged he had few clues about who will emerge as the team's third cornerback. The competition to replace veteran nickel back Corey Graham began to take shape Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers during the Ravens' preseason opener at M&T Bank Stadium. The leading candidates for the vacancy saw their stock travel in opposite directions. Although cornerback Chykie Brown got the start with veteran Lardarius Webb out with a lower-back injury, he didn't capitalize on the opportunity.

The Ravens' already thin secondary was tested Thursday night when cornerback Asa Jackson suffered a second-quarter concussion and joined inactive cornerback Lardarius Webb on the sideline. Jackson's departure left the team with two active cornerbacks, but one was 2011 first-round pick Jimmy Smith, who locked down Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown and helped hold Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger without a touchdown for the first time in 30 games. “It was an unusual matchup, something I've never really done before in my career, even in college or high school, no matter what - just being a bigger guy on such a small, fast guy like [Brown]

Ravens backup cornerback Chykie Brown was briefly kicked out of practice Saturday morning by coach John Harbaugh after Brown booted the football in frustration following a play. Brown had a potential interception glance off his hands when he kicked the football down the field, angering Harbaugh since that would have drawn a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct if this had been a game. "Chykie, get off the field," Harbaugh said loudly. "Get off the field. " Brown immediately complied and ran inside to the Ravens' training complex before returning to practice a short time later in full uniform.

Cornerback Chris Johnson - signed by the Ravens on Nov. 13 - didn't take much time making an impact for his new team, stripping Mike Wallace after the wide receiver caught a pass in the first quarter of the Ravens' eventual 13-10 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night. Johnson, who was signed two days prior to Jimmy Smith undergoing surgery to repair a sports hernia, lined up as the fifth defensive back in the team's nickel package - a role that had previously gone to Chykie Brown in the Ravens' 55-20 rout of the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 11. Brown, the organization's fifth-round pick in last year's draft, tried not to sound disappointed about getting leapfrogged on the depth chart by Johnson.

Bernard Pierce led the rushing attack. Chykie Brown broke up the most passes. And Brendon Ayanbadejo and Omar Brown each registered a sack. The Ravens relied on their usual stable of superstars to throttle the New York Giants, 33-14, Sunday evening, but they also got some opportune contributions from younger and unheralded players. Pierce, a third-round pick in April's NFL draft, outgained starter Ray Rice, 123-107, on the ground although Rice did add 51 receiving yards and a 27-yard touchdown catch.

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.

This is what Gary Kubiak's West Coast offense is supposed to look like. It's an offense predicated on running the ball and setting up the passing game off play-action fakes. Of course, the Ravens would like to have converted a few more of those field goals into touchdowns Thursday night, but that should come in the future. Nearly a week after throwing 62 passes, the Ravens stayed with the run and they came away with a big win against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens didn't have a lot of big-gainers, but they had over 100 yards rushing and were committed to the run. That set up two touchdown passes off play-action fakes from quarterback Joe Flacco to tight end Owen Daniels . The running game has always been a major staple of a Kubiak offense from his days as an assistant coach and coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos.

Ravens offensive guard Ben Grubbs, who was doubtful with a toe injury, is out for today's game against the Tennessee Titans. Andre Gurode is expected to start in his place. Grubbs had played in every game during his carer (65), which was the Ravens' fourth longest active streak. Wide receiver Tandon Doss, cornerbacks Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown and Chris Carr, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and outside linebacker Sergio Kindle are also inactive for the Ravens. That means cornerback Danny Gorrer, who was signed from the practice squad yesterday, is active.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton took what the Ravens' depleted secondary gave him in the passing game for more than three quarters. When Cincinnati fell behind in the fourth quarter, he took advantage of that soft coverage for the game-winning blow. Dalton hit wide receiver A.J. Green for a 77-yard touchdown to give the Bengals a 23-16 lead, a play that placed an unfair spotlight on cornerback Chykie Brown and the Ravens' undermanned secondary, which spent the entire game trying to contain the Bengals' deep threats.

Baltimore Sun staff members give their thoughts on the Ravens ' game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 of the 2014 NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: It was 2013 all over again. The Ravens got off to a terrible start, Joe Flacco made a couple of head-scratching mistakes, and the Ravens totally abandoned their running game. Then, after a long touchdown pass to Steve Smith almost made it all not matter, their defense let down in the fourth quarter, another characteristic of last year's team.

Terrence Brooks wasn't having any fun. Seven months after helping Florida State win a national championship, he was just another NFL rookie, lining up as the Ravens' third-string safety during training camp. He was struggling to master the defensive playbook and fulfill all the responsibilities the coaching staff asked of him. He was distracted by things off the field and bothered by factors he couldn't control. Fellow defensive back Chykie Brown saw a teammate who wasn't taking football seriously enough.

Chykie Brown has heard the chatter both inside and outside the Ravens' facility. He knows what people are saying about the Ravens' banged-up secondary and how it could lead to the demise of the team. He also understands that he and whoever is left from the Ravens' cornerback group has a big opportunity Saturday night to ease some of the angst. "If people put us on that pedestal, we have to step up and answer the challenge," said Brown, the Ravens' fourth-year player. "I'm always up for a challenge.

Ravens secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo saw the yellow flag fly into the air and immediately sought an explanation from an official nearby. Spagnuolo knew there was contact between cornerback Chykie Brown and a San Francisco 49ers wide receiver during a one-on-one drill early in Saturday's practice. What he didn't know was whether the penalty flag was for illegal contact, defensive holding or perhaps even offensive pass interference. Such uncertainty among players and coaches has been commonplace early in the preseason as teams struggle to adjust to the NFL's vow to make illegal contact and defensive holding a "point of emphasis" during the 2014 season.

Setting the scene: The Ravens began their last full practice at the Under Armour Performance Center for nearly a week around 1 p.m., and practiced under overcast skies until 4 p.m. It was the team's second straight day in full pads. Daily battle: Practice wasn't as fiery Sunday as it was the day before, but there was plenty of friendly competition between cornerback Chykie Brown and wide receiver Steve Smith, who came to blows Saturday. Smith beat Brown several times for big plays, but Brown covered him well, and Brown stripped him during situational work.
