The Ravens made it official, ruling out rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and offensive tackle Eugene Monroe for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Jernigan has a meniscus injury and did not practice all week. Monroe had arthroscopic knee surgery and could be sidelined for at least a few games. Meanwhile, veteran defensive end Chris Canty is questionable after not practicing all week due to knee and calf injuries. He's regarded as a game-time decision and the Ravens could start DeAngelo Tyson in his place.

Two of the Ravens' most promising defensive rookies suffered injuries Wednesday at training camp. Defensive end Brent Urban, a fourth round draft pick out of Virginia, was carted off the field into the training room, unable to put weight on his right leg. Urban has injured his right knee and will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam tonight to determine the severity of the damage. Urban had ankle surgery in February following the Senior Bowl, but had fully recovered from the procedure.

It was unintentional but it sure was a fitting look for a player who has vowed to go to work and put all the issues that contributed to him falling into the second round of last week's NFL draft behind him.

Alcohol is far too attractive and easy to obtain online for kids, says Dr. David Jernigan, director of Johns Hopkins' Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth . Jernigan wrote a commentary for the Archive of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine to accompany a new report from researchers at the University of North Carolina that documents how easy it is for underage drinkers to make purchases on the Internet. While it's long been known kids could buy alcohol online, this is believed to be the first peer-reviewed study to look at age verification practices of online vendors.

SEVERNA PARK resident David Jernigan was just beginning his daily 10-mile run when a thunderstorm hit. Too far from home to turn back, he sought refuge at a friend's house. But, the friends weren't home, the house had no front porch and the outdoorsman, he admits, is "terrified of lightning." "I flattened myself against their front door," he says, "with this petrified look on my face and my hands spread out like I'm being crucified." Now he checks the Weather Channel before he runs." Jernigan has made a name for himself in the annals of local running, but if people don't actually know his name, they've seen the man. A world history teacher at Old Mill High School, he admits his running style is slightly unorthodox.
