There was only one brief moment when it appeared that Torrey Smith's decision to play might backfire. After catching a 43-yard pass from quarterback Joe Flacco and getting his helmet yanked back by New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster more than midway through the first quarter, the wide receiver - who suffered a concussion in the Ravens' game against the Denver Broncos last week - looked woozy and unsteady on his feet. But the alarm was fleeting, and Smith said he never considered leaving the contest and standing on the sideline for an extended period of time.

Steve Young took the first hit on his chest, just under his chin and at the top of his red No. 8. Then, in whiplash action, the back of his helmet caromed off a teammate's knee and the grass surface of Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz. Just like that, the intense quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers was revisiting no-man's land last Monday night.

COLLEGE PARK -- C.J. Brown has watched the video in which he is blasted from behind by a Florida State player before being rammed in the chest by another defender, twisting the Maryland quarterback's body so that his face mask bounces on the turf. “Pretty gruesome hit,” Brown said Tuesday, shortly after coach Randy Edsall announced that he will be back as the starter for Maryland (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) in its game at Wake Forest (3-3, 1-2 ACC) on Saturday. “One of the trainers called me 'scrambled eggs' - 'Hey Scrambled, you all right?

The Ellenbergers didn't realize at first how serious Sarah's head injury could have been.
