The Ravens have suffered another hit to their thinning defense. Rookie defensive end Tony Weaver, the team's second-round pick, sustained a high right ankle sprain and will miss the rest of this week's training camp practices. "Anytime it's a high ankle sprain, there's always a concern," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. Weaver limped off the field toward the end of Monday morning's practice, but the extent of his injury wasn't known until yesterday. He has been fitted with a protective boot and is officially listed as day-to-day.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 27, Raiders 7 This one could get ugly early. The Ravens don't lose at home. Oakland is a lousy team. Plus Raiders' RB Darren McFadden has a high ankle sprain and Oakland's run D made Tampa Bay's Doug Martin (251 yards rushing, four TDs) look like Jim Brown last week. Edward Lee Ravens 34, Raiders 20 I'm buying into the theory that West Coast teams don't fare very well in 1 p.m. games on the East Coast. And we all know how well the Ravens play at home.

Ravens rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith has officially been diagnosed with a high left ankle sprain and will be out a "few weeks," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday. Smith, the organization's first-round pick out of Colorado, got hurt while covering a kickoff in the first quarter of the team's 35-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. X-rays taken on his ankle were negative, but Smith is still expected to be sidelined for an extended period. "Jimmy is the one guy that had an injury that was something a little more serious," said Harbaugh, who said that Smith got caught up in a pile while covering the kick.

After a 7-8 campaign that ended with five consecutive losses, there are several areas that Towson must address in the offseason. And one of those deficiencies involves the offense. That unit finished the season scoring 8.3 goals per game. But after averaging 10.2 goals in their first 10 contests, the Tigers struggled to score 3.4 goals per game in their last five. Coach Shawn Nadelen said a spate of injuries and departures helped to sap some of the offense's punch. “We were thin from start to finish with the amount of injuries and guys that had left the team,” he said.

NEW ORLEANS -- The New England Patriots will be Brady's bunch. After delaying the biggest question in the Big Easy, Patriots coach Bill Belichick announced late last night that Tom Brady will be New England's starting quarterback in Sunday's Super Bowl against the St. Louis Rams. While Brady showed no signs of being hindered by his sprained left ankle yesterday afternoon, Belichick waited until watching film of Brady before choosing the second-year quarterback. "Tom Brady demonstrated in practice today that he is fit to play," Belichick said in a statement last night.

You don't have to like Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens, but you do have to respect his toughness. After suffering a high ankle sprain Dec. 22, he's already walking without a protective boot and is expected to play in the Cowboys' divisional playoff game Jan. 13.

After dissecting one of the most complete victories in his seven-year tenure, Ravens coach Brian Billick determined only one unit may need to put in some extra work at practice this week. Time for members of the secondary to hit the ball-catching machine. "We did a good job of knocking down some interceptions," Billick said. "They had some fun with it. Hopefully they can go to the next step." The Ravens did capitalize on a few chances, picking off Green Bay Packers quarterbacks three times - one better than the total this season for the secondary heading into the game - in the team's 48-3 win Monday night.

The Ravens secondary could be getting closer to full strength. Rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith, who hasn't played since Week One because of a high ankle sprain, returned to practice on a limited basis today. He hasn't practiced since sustaining his injury, but he looked pretty comfortable running and hitting the blocking sled. Smith was joined on the practice field by cornerback Chris Carr, who has missed three of the Ravens' five games with a hamstring injury. Carr was also a limited practice participant, but he fielded some punts so that is probably a good sign that he is feeling much better.

ASHBURN, Va. - Stephen Davis would like nothing more than to watch Washington Redskins fullback Rock Cartwright succeed. Just not Sunday, when Cartwright's Redskins visit Davis and the Carolina Panthers at Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. "I'm proud of him," said Davis, who was the starting tailback for Washington last year during Cartwright's rookie season. "He's worked hard to be in the position that he's in. Hopefully, he can have a successful day, but otherwise, [I hope] we can come out with the victory."

Each day this week leading up to Thursday's NFL draft, we will highlight one prospect whom the Ravens could draft with the 29th overall pick. Today's player is Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler, who started 36 games at right guard for the Badgers. He is seen as the draft's second-best guard behind Stanford's David DeCastro. Background: Born and raised in Wisconsin, Zeitler, 22, was a two-time letter-winner in wrestling in high school and also participated in track and field. He became a fixture at right guard at Wisconsin, starting 36 of a possible 40 games in his final three seasons (he didn't start in four games in 2010 due to a high ankle sprain)

After covering Sean Mosley for a season or two, I noticed a pattern had emerged. Mosley, who came to Maryland from Baltimore's Saint Frances, would have games that would go largely unnoticed by casual fans. He might barely score in double figures. Sometimes not. But the opposing coaches would absolutely sing the player's praises. Remember what Coach K said this season? "I just think Mosley's a guy that every coach in this league would love to have ... it seems like he's always been a veteran, even his freshman year," the Duke coach said.

The Sun's preview on UMBC will be published Wednesday, but here's a sampling of my interview with coach Don Zimmerman. Injuries have taken a toll on the Retrievers, who will play the 2012 season without Joseph Impallaria. The junior midfielder who boasted the team's best face-off percentage last year (50.5 percent on 50-of-99 face-offs) tore the rotator cuffs on both shoulders. Several starters have been sidelined from practice by ailments. Senior defenseman Aaron Verardi and junior midfielder Scott Hopmann tweaked their hamstrings and have yet to practice.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith strolled into the locker room this week looking like a man without a concern in the world, right up until the second he realized a reporter was standing in front of his locker, notebook in hand. Smith leaned his head back, sized up his inquisitor, and raised his eyebrows with skepticism. "Ah man, don't tell me you're waiting to talk to me," he said. An uncomfortable silence hung in the air for a few seconds, before Smith smiled to reveal he was joking.

Jimmy Smith's return to the Ravens was an uneventful and quiet one. Making his first appearance since suffering a high left ankle sprain in the season opener, the rookie cornerback was limited mostly to special teams play against the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field Monday night. Perhaps the best news was that Smith did not re-aggravate his ankle injury or leave the game with a new one. Smith, the organization's first-round pick in April, played primarily on the punt return unit, lining up on the outside.

With the news that Domonique Foxworth's season had ended after being placed on injured reserve Wednesday morning, the Ravens cornerback group got a bit of good news in the form of rookie Jimmy Smith. The organization's first-round pick in April, Smith is no longer wearing a clunky boot on his left foot to help him bounce back from a high ankle sprain. Smith walked through the team's locker room on Wednesday without a limp in his gait or a grimace on his face. “That's a sign that the ankle is getting better, getting stronger,” he said.

The Ravens were hoping that all of their injured players would return after the bye week ready to play. That clearly won't be the case, though coach John Harbaugh would much prefer that remains a mystery to Sunday's opponent, the Houston Texans. Harbaugh interrupted a group interview with rookie Jimmy Smith to remind the injured cornerback not to disclose his status. "Hey, hey, hey, no you're not doing it," Harbaugh said after entering the locker room. "You're not asking him about his injury.
