Defensive lineman Haloti Ngata left the game in the second half after injuring his knee and did not return. He said after the game that doctors did not determine whether or not he suffered any ligament damage, so he'll go back to Baltimore to get it evaluated further. "I'm just happy our younger guys were able to step up and do their part," Ngata said.

Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has been fined $8,268 by the NFL for kicking Washington Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao, according to a league spokesman. The fine is for unnecessary roughness. Ngata wasn't penalized on the play. Ngata kicked Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just [upset]

At the mandatory minicamp last month, Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata still looked to be favoring the knee he hurt in the Super Bowl, forcing him out of the game in the third quarter. However, that hasn't been evident this week as Ngata has been moving around freely. “Once I left here [in June], I was able to start running a little bit and the weight kind of went down at the same time,” Ngata said. “It was great to be able to run for the last month and a half. It was great timing.

Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata can likely expect to hear from the league office in the near future. Ngata kicked Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. Ngata retaliated to stick up for his teammate after Lauvao stuck Franks a bit late. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just pissed that he was doing that and just nudged him," Ngata said.

Forbes released its list of the world's highest-paid athletes on Monday, and one of the biggest names on the Ravens defense is ranked 12th on the list. I'll give you a hint: It is not Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs or Ed Reed. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who signed a five-year, $61 million extension with the Ravens last September, earned $37.1 million in salary and bonuses over the past 12 months, which was more than any other athlete playing a team sport . Throw in the $200,000 that he made in endorsements and Ngata raked in $37.3 million.

Haloti Ngata has squashed ball-carriers and bowled over quarterbacks throughout his Ravens career, and on Wednesday night, it was unveiled by NFL Network that his peers consider him one of the game's best players. The Ravens defensive tackle was voted as the ninth-best player in the NFL entering the 2012 season. He was ranked the third-highest among defensive players on the NFL's annual list of the top 100 players in the league behind New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (fifth)

Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata returned to practice after missing the past few days to attend to a family issue. He wasn't at practice Sunday and Monday, excused for personal reasons. Starting defensive end Arthur Jones missed practice for the third day in a row as he deals with a personal medical issue, according to Harbaugh. Jones was at team headquarters Tuesday, but has been sidelined since the Ravens' 34-27 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. “Art had an issue, it's not football-related,” Harbaugh said.

The word was out. There was no way you were blocking him with one guy. He was already one of the most disruptive defensive players in the NFL, and now he was emerging as a front-runner for the AFC Defensive Player of the Year . About a third of the way through the 2011-12 season, those things were being said and written more about Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata than linebacker Terrell Suggs. However, it was Suggs who set a career-high with 14 sacks and a franchise-record with seven forced fumbles on his way to winning the NFL's top defensive honor.

Haloti Ngata recorded 31 tackles, a sack and an interception in his rookie campaign last season. Sports Illustrated recently named him one of the league's top 10 defenders under the age of 25. What do you find more satisfying - a bone-jarring hit or an interception like the one you had in last season's opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? I would rather get a big hit than an interception. I don't want to hurt a guy, but I want him to feel me and know that I'm there. Do you feel like there's more pressure on you to perform?

Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was fined $15,000 for his second-quarter hit on New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez that led to Jarret Johnson's fumble return for a touchdown in the 34-17 victory Sunday. No penalty was called on the play, but the league assessed the fine on Ngata for roughing the passer. Replays showed that Ngata led with his helmet while hitting Sanchez in the back. Johnson picked up the ball and ran it in from 26 yards out for a touchdown, giving the Ravens a 27-7 lead.

Ravens defensive tackle Kapron Lewis-Moore waited exactly 19 months from his final college football play to suit up in a competitive game, and even though it was just the preseason, Lewis-Moore relished Thursday night against San Francisco. “I'm feeling so excited,” Lewis-Moore said after the game. “That's my first game back for a while, and I was just glad to go out there and have some fun. Obviously there are some things I need to keep working on, but … it's the preseason, we're still in training camp, and we've got a lot of time to get better and everything.” Lewis-Moore, the Ravens' sixth-round pick in 2013 out of Notre Dame, missed all of last season while recovering from surgery on a torn right ACL. He went down in the 2013 BCS National Championship game, a bad loss for the Irish that was made worse for Lewis-Moore by the injury.

The NFL will experiment with a potential rule change involving extra points in the first two weeks of the preseason. The ball will be moved from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line, making an extra point the equivalent of a 33-yard field goal. Ravens Pro Bowl kicker Justin Tucker said he's interested to see how the change works out but made it clear that he's not a fan of adding to the length of extra points. “I don't think it's really going to change anything that we do aside from just practicing, just the visual of seeing an extra point from a little further back,” Tucker said.

Veteran left tackle Eugene Monroe and cornerback Jimmy Smith were the Ravens' only new absentees at practice Friday, while wide receiver Steve Smith was present at practice but had the day off. Meanwhile, five players who missed Thursday's practice were back in action: nose tackle Haloti Ngata, linebacker Terrell Suggs, wide receiver Jacoby Jones, running back Justin Forsett, and wide receiver Jeremy Butler. Butler was the only one who missed because of an injury, while the other four were given days off to rest.

Ravens rookie defensive lineman Brent Urban has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, coach John Harbaugh said Thursday. "We got bad news on Brent Urban," Harbaugh said. Urban will undergo surgery to repair the damage for the season-ending injury sustained while being blocked to the ground by offensive tackle Jah Reid on Wednesday. "It was a clean tear, which is positive," Harbaugh said. "He's been through this before. It was a one-on-one block and it was just a situation where one guy was blocking the other and the knee just buckled on him. " The injury was immediately regarded as serious Wednesday when Urban knocked over during a block by offensive tackle Jah Reid.

The Ravens' top decision makers are always preaching about the importance of roster competition. They want it at every position, not just for starting roles but for special teams units and back-end roster spots. Heading into training camp which officially begins with the first full-squad practice on Thursday, the Ravens' front office has assembled a 90-man roster that will need to be whittled down to 53 in the coming weeks. The roster has a mixture of youth and experience and is particularly deep at wide receiver where 12 guys are competing for five or six spots.

Terrell Suggs' second-half struggles in 2013 apparently didn't alter the opinion around the league that the longtime Ravens defender remains one of the top pass rushers in the NFL. Suggs was recognized last night as the 26th-ranked player on the NFL Network's Top 100 list. The voting is done by players around the league.   The Ravens' all-time leader in sacks, sack yardage and forced fumbles, Suggs, 31, has become a mainstay on the top 100 list. He finished 56th    last year despite playing in only eight games after he suffered a partially-torn Achilles' tendon in the offseason.

Veteran Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and defensive linemen Chris Canty and Haloti Ngata lead a list of players absent from the practice field during organized team activities on Tuesday. All three veteran defensive players have missed the team's first three workouts, which are optional under the league's collective bargaining agreement. Suggs, Ngata, and Canty are the only three players who are not injured to not take part in any of the workouts this spring. Linebacker Daryl Smith, guard Marshall Yanda, and linebacker Elvis Dumervil were also not on the field for the second straight week.

The difference between lining up over left tackle and the left shoulder of the left guard may not seem vast, but Haloti Ngata admits he felt lost in space when asked to play the five-technique defensive end position in 2012. “Playing defensive end, it's too much space for me,” Ngata said Tuesday evening. “I like the guys around me.” That's why Ngata got downright giddy, at least by his standards, when asked about the free-agent signings of defensive linemen Chris Canty and Marcus Spears and the draft selection of big nose tackle Brandon Williams.

The Ravens contacted Haloti Ngata's representatives earlier this offseason to begin contract extension talks that the team hoped would allow the 30-year-old defensive lineman to finish his career in Baltimore. Those talks, aimed at reducing Ngata's team-high $16 million salary cap number in each of the final two years of his deal and extending his stay in the purple and black, didn't get very far. But as he's preparing for his ninth NFL season with the Ravens, Ngata said he'd like nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of his closest friend on the team, Terrell Suggs, and sign a contract extension to end his career in the same place it began.

The recipe is familiar, but with a fresh twist. Mix the salty, crunchy goodness of traditional munchies with the spicy kick reminiscent of Maryland's steamed crabs - and add the power of several professional Baltimore athletes for good measure - and you've got a new line of snacks with hometown flavor. Crab-inspired cheese curls, buttery popcorn and sunflower seeds are some of the product offerings from Home Team Snacks, headquartered in Carroll County. Launched in 2012, the company is the brainchild of Marc Heyman and Jeff Hinton, 49-year-old Baltimore-area natives who grew up in Mount Washington and Catonsville, respectively.
