Jah Reid has only been a professional football player for about a year now, but he knows that a lot could change in the NFL in the span of a couple of weeks. The Ravens could use their 29th overall draft pick in next Thursday's first round on a guard or they could just as easily sign one of the available free agents at the position. Reid, however, isn't spending a whole lot of time thinking about either scenario. He's too busy trying to earn the position for himself. "I have to go in and expect to play," Reid said [Thursday]

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.

The Ravens' Plan A at left guard was re-signing Pro Bowl performer Ben Grubbs, who eventually signed with the New Orleans Saints. Plan B was an aggressive bid at free agent Evan Mathis, who opted Saturday to re-sign with the Philadelphia Eagles. What is Plan C? The Ravens, of course, aren't going to publicly announce that to the media, but don't be surprised if it includes giving second-year player Jah Reid an extended look at left guard. Regardless of their plans for Reid, I think the Ravens will sign at least one free agent offensive lineman and add one or two more offensive linemen in the draft.

The Ravens pared their roster down to the NFL's required 53-player limit Saturday, choosing to keep two quarterbacks and seven wide receivers and leaving themselves thin at cornerback and along the offensive and defensive lines. Among their 13 cuts were veteran guard A.Q. Shipley, who started nine games last year; outside linebacker John Simon, a fourth-round draft pick in 2013; quarterback Keith Wenning, a sixth-round selection in May; and veteran cornerbacks Dominique Franks and Derek Cox. With Wenning's release, the Ravens will enter their fifth straight season with just two quarterbacks on the roster.

Offensive tackle Jah Reid, who has not participated in practice or a game since re-aggravating a strained right calf in a preseason contest against the Detroit Lions Sept. 17, appeared to take part in Friday's practice. Reid was active in individual drills involving the offensive linemen. His return cemented a full turnout for the Ravens Friday. Four starters who were limited in Thursday's session - cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee), strong safety Bernard Pollard (bruised ribs), inside linebacker Jameel McClain (knee)

When I keep hearing that second-year player Jah Reid might be getting some playing time at left guard, there is cause for concern. I knew he was a project when the Ravens drafted him in the third round out of Central Florida, but I haven't seen anything that would warrant him getting playing time. He has spent more time in the training room for rehab than on the practice and playing fields. I'm concerned. To be even having this conversation means the Ravens are in deep trouble at left guard.

Two days before the regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, it did not appear that there were any new absences at Ravens practice Saturday. Rookie cornerback Asa Jackson and offensive tackle Jah Reid were not on the field behind the team's training facility in Owings Mills. Jackson sat out Friday's session due to an illness, while Reid has not practiced the previous two days because of a strained right calf. Rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw and backup strong safety Sean Considine were present.

Just as owner  Steve Bisciotti  had done a day earlier, Ravens coach  John Harbaugh   stood firmly behind  Ray Rice  on Tuesday, saying that the running back “will be part of our team” in 2014. Harbaugh, however, did express disappointment that three of his players - Rice, wide receiver  Deonte Thompson  and offensive guard/tackle  Jah Reid   - were arrested in a 22-day span, calling their actions “unacceptable ... and disappointing.”   “You also separate the person from the activity and redemption is something we think is important as well,” Harbaugh said Tuesday morning at the NFL owners meetings at the  Ritz-Carlton  Orlando Grande Lakes resort.

One of John Harbaugh 's offensive tackles had been carted off the field and another was held out of this week's three-day mandatory minicamp so he could focus on his conditioning. After another hot practice under the bright sun, the Ravens' coach didn't feel like sharing any state secrets. Jah Reid , who spent most of the week at right tackle, was carted off the practice field midway through Thursday's final day of minicamp. His right leg rested on the back of the cart.

The Ravens released their first injury report of the week leading up to Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff game against the Denver Broncos, and Bernard Pierce did not practice Wednesday. The rookie running back, who is described as dealing with a knee injury, did not appear to participate in Tuesday's session. Fullback Vonta Leach also did not practice. He aggravated a sprained right ankle in Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard playoff round. Leach has sat out the last four Thursdays without missing a start.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has to be a little nervous these days. The Ravens are a few players away from being a good football team, and Newsome has several days remaining before the team begins preparation for the season opener here against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 7. So, I suspect Newsome's fingers are busy calling around the league in an effort to find a cornerback or a guard or tackle in exchange for his team's surplus of receivers and linebackers. There is a fine line between being a serious contender and being average in the NFL, and the Ravens want to take it to the next level.

Ravens safety Matt Elam and running back Bernard Pierce missed a second straight practice for the Ravens Tuesday, while tight end Owen Daniels, who missed two weeks with leg fatigue, practiced for the second consecutive day. Elam is dealing with "a little leg issue," coach John Harbaugh said Monday, and is expected back later this week. Pierce was injured on a hit to the head by Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather in Saturday's preseason game, and left the game to go through the league's concussion protocol.

The Ravens will maintain their tradition of having starters playing into the third quarter during their third preseason game Saturday night. Some starters might just play until halftime against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium. This will be the last preseason game for the starters, who will be rested during the fourth and final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints next week. “We're there stamina-wise, there's no question about that,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels remained sidelined with leg soreness Tuesday. Daniels hasn't practiced in the past week, but coach John Harbaugh emphasized Monday that the two-time Pro Bowl selection isn't injured. Daniels was limited to five games and 24 receptions last season with the Houston Texans due to a broken leg. In training camp, Daniels told The Baltimore Sun that he's 100 percent recovered from the leg injury from last season. "I don't want to get into specifics too much, but when you have legs and you have hamstrings and groins and stuff like that, there's wear and tear on those things," Harbaugh said.

Some of our representatives in Congress have started to weigh in on the NFL's decision to suspend running back Ray Rice for only two games, as if they don't have enough to do already. There is fighting the Middle East, a confrontation in Ukraine, immigrants illegally crossing our borders by the thousands and veterans not getting their benefits, and our legislators are coming down heavy on the NFL and the Ravens about the Rice suspension. If anything, they should work to improve our justice system, which did absolutely nothing to Rice.

The Ravens had been relatively fortunate on the injury front early in training camp, but their outlook - and their options at arguably their deepest position - were altered on one play Wednesday. During an 11-on-11 drill about an hour into practice, a seemingly routine running play left two rookie defensive linemen on the ground and needing help to get up. Second-round draft pick Timmy Jernigan ultimately walked gingerly toward the locker room with a trainer supporting his back.

If the Ravens have a specific plan for filling the hole left by Ben Grubbs now that the draft has ended, they aren't divulging it. Not that anybody should be surprised. As is so often the case, coach John Harbaugh spoke fondly of the potential battle for playing time along the offensive line without giving any indication of how he thinks it may shake out. "I think it goes back to this: All things are possible," he said Saturday at the team's Owings Mills headquarters.

Ravens starting cornerback Jimmy Smith was arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct Saturday night after an incident at The Greene Turtle in Towson, according to Baltimore County police. Police said Smith, 25, was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer. Ravens team officials are aware of the incident involving Smith. "We're gathering information about this," Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne said.

The questions about Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith's immaturity surfaced again over the weekend after he was arrested and charged with failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer during an incident in a Towson restaurant Saturday night. The arrest might have raised some red flags among team officials about a possible long-term contract for their promising young cornerback, as he further embarrassed a franchise beset by off-the-field incidents during this offseason. Since the NFL season ended in February, five Ravens have been arrested; the other 31 NFL teams have combined for 14. Smith hasn't been issued a court date for his incident, but maybe he should be charged with arrogance and stupidity, too. That's enough already.

One month after coach John Harbaugh emphasized a high standard for players' conduct, starting cornerback Jimmy Smith became the latest Ravens player to be arrested during an unusually rocky offseason. Smith, 25, was charged Saturday night with failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer, a misdemeanor, after an incident at the Greene Turtle in Towson, making him the fifth Ravens player to be arrested since February. Police responding to a call about an unconscious woman in a bathroom at the York Road bar said they found Smith helping an intoxicated woman in the women's restroom.
