Backup linebacker Erin Henderson (Maryland) has returned to the Minnesota Vikings after completing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Henderson was at practice Wednesday. He has played in only two games for Minnesota this season, primarily on special teams. Henderson declined to specify the substance he was punished for, but says he "didn't do anything wrong" and blames the positive test on a prescription product he took in training camp to remedy allergic reactions.

The Detroit Lions' re-signing of veteran center Dominic Raiola last week reaffirmed my belief that finding a quality center might be one of the biggest challenges for the Ravens front office this offseason. There will still be a few of them available on the free-agent market, with Cleveland's Alex Mack , New Orleans' Brian de la Puente and Green Bay's Evan Dietrich-Smith likely heading that list. But there are several teams in need of a center, so the competition for those guys could get expensive.

As if a 2-8-1 record that includes four blown leads in the final minute weren't enough, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier spent the day before Thanksgiving being confronted by reporters about a third player arrest in the past three weeks. Middle linebacker Erin Henderson, who missed three practices and last Sunday's game at Green Bay because of what Frazier called "personal reasons," was arrested Nov. 19 on probable cause for DWI and possession of a controlled substance in Eden Prairie, Minn.

Baseball Ex-Orioles pitcher Ayala returns to Nationals The Washington Nationals reunited with veteran right-handed reliever Luis Ayala , a former Montreal Expo and original 2005 National, by signing him Friday to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league camp, according to a person familiar with the situation. The incentives of Ayala's deal are still being worked out, but he will have a base salary of at least $1 million, the person said. Ayala, 36, signed with the Orioles last spring and was traded to the Atlanta Braves in April after allowing two runs in only two appearances.

Minnesota Vikings backup linebacker Erin Henderson was suspended for four games without pay Tuesday for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. The suspension covers Minnesota's final three regular-season games and first playoff game. The NFL does not specify the substances for which players test positive. A message was left seeking comment from Henderson's agent, Brian Mackler. The Vikings were off Tuesday and unavailable for comment. Henderson is the younger brother of linebacker E.J. Henderson, who broke his left leg Dec. 6 and is out indefinitely.

SAN FRANCISCO -- As hard as Erin Henderson has tried to get out of his big brother's rather imposing shadow, the Maryland linebacker draws more and more comparisons to one of the best defensive players in the school's history. When the younger Henderson came from Aberdeen to College Park three years ago, he was a quarterback who fully intended to create his own legacy rather than following his brother E.J., a two-time first-team All-American at linebacker when he finished his career in 2002.

Erin Henderson is bigger, stronger, as fast as, and more of a vocal leader than his brother ever was at this age. But the Aberdeen junior quarterback and linebacker has yet to escape his sibling's shadow. "As a freshman, he'd come home to me from practice and say, `Dad, why do they have to call me E.J. and Little E,' " said Eric Henderson of his son, Erin, whose older brother, E.J., is a standout linebacker at the University of Maryland. "He's riding the coattails, picks E.J.'s brain a little bit. But for the most part, he's out to prove that he's Erin Henderson, not E.J."

Aberdeen quarterback and linebacker Erin Henderson has the size, has the numbers, has the record, even has a big-time scholarship - but that's not enough for some people. He hears opponents downgrade his skills, say he's unfairly grabbed the spotlight and tell him he'll never measure up to his NFL linebacker brother. But Henderson has turned their taunts into motivation and that motivation into victory. "This season has meant a lot," Henderson said. "A lot of people say I only get things because E.J. did what he did, but now, I have a chance to show everybody I'm my own person and I do what I do. Hopefully, my numbers show that."

Former Maryland standout Erin Henderson presented a $5,000 check to National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative yesterday in Washington. Henderson, an Aberdeen grad and Minnesota Vikings linebacker, also agreed to donate an undisclosed sum of money to BCI for every regular-season sack he makes. He calls “Sacks for Cats” his way of raising awareness of the decline of lions, tigers, cheetahs and other big cat species.   “The numbers [of big cats remaining in the wild] are frightening,” said Henderson, who was inspired to get involved after seeing a public service announcement about big cats during Nat Geo WILD's Big Cat Week.

But there are a handful of solid start ers -- including a pair of Ravens -- scheduled to be available in a deep class of free agent lineback ers. Jarret Johnson, who has spent nine years with the Ravens, is among the top outside linebackers this...

Few matters of public policy in Harford County in recent years have been as foolish as the decision earlier this week by the Harford County Board of Education to reject an offer from NFL players E.J. and Erin Henderson to donate $20,000 for a scoreboard at their alma mater, Aberdeen High School, and allow the field at the school to be named after the Henderson family. One similarly foolish public policy act that does come to mind involved a different incarnation of the school board refusing to name an athletic field of another school after a graduate who was killed serving his country.

Those who make their living soliciting donations on behalf of charities, colleges and other nonprofits are occasionally asked by outsiders whether asking for contributions from the rich ever becomes tiresome. Doesn't it amount to begging in better dress? The answer is no, because their job is not so much to tug at heartstrings as to make people happy. Signing that check is a thrill when a donor realizes how much it's going to help those who need it. As the purse is emptied the heart is filled, a happy circumstance that Victor Hugo observed more than a century ago. It's also a lesson that members of the Harford County Board of Education might take to heart if they plan to make it a permanent policy to refuse large donations from National Football League players.

About 20 injured football players did not participate in Maryland's third and final summer scrimmage yesterday, including four linebackers and the Terps' top three receivers, coach Ralph Friedgen said. By the end of the scrimmage, another linebacker had been injured. Among the sidelined were linebackers Erin Henderson (stinger) and his backup, Rick Costa. Linebacker Chase Bullock (ankle) is still out, and Dave Philistin, who had taken over for Bullock, pulled his hamstring yesterday. Philistin's backup, Ben Pooler, is out for three weeks.
