The chronic sleep disorder that afflicts Ravens rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle is a common but often misdiagnosed condition that is treatable and should not affect his NFL career, according to experts in the study of narcolepsy. But the long-term effect is still being studied. University of Texas football coach Mack Brown disclosed last week that Kindle, 23, suffers from narcolepsy. It is unknown whether the disorder contributed to a recent fall at a house in Austin in which his skull was fractured.

Ravens officials instructed employees Wednesday to save any documents, texts and emails related to Ray Rice in preparation for the NFL's investigation being conducted by former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III. The Ravens had already been told that team officials would be interviewed as part of the investigation into how Rice's domestic violence case was handled, but they had not been given any specific dates or instructions on what documents to...

At the beginning of what would become another tumultuous week, Ravens coach John Harbaugh made an observation about the Ray Rice fallout that will never sound as prescient as it does now. "We're probably not going to get away from it, and probably rightly so," Harbaugh said Monday. As the Ravens prepared for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, their organization remained under significant scrutiny for what it did and didn't do in its handling of the Rice situation. The Ravens terminated the contract of the Pro Bowl running back on Sept.

What is it with the Harbaugh brothers and their pants? First, Jim Harbaugh's wife complains to a radio station that the 49ers coach wears cheapo pleated khakis from Walmart.  Now we find out that Ravens coach John Harbaugh has been wearing the same pair of black pants on the field for two years.  "For game day, he wears what the game day equipment manager puts in his office," said Kevin Byrne, Ravens senior vice president of public...

Could John Harbaugh and the Ravens get a little help in the AFC playoff race from an opponent they recently defeated? With identical 10-3 records, the Ravens are tied with the Houston Texans and the New England Patriots in the race for the top seed in the AFC postseason. The Ravens also share the same win-loss mark with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the AFC North title. The Steelers are scheduled to visit the San Francisco 49ers Monday night. The 49ers just happen to be coached by Harbaugh's younger brother Jim, which prompted a reporter to ask John Harbaugh if he planned to share any knowledge about Pittsburgh with his brother.

Give Sergio Kindle credit. The Ravens outside linebacker, who has had a solid training camp so far, doesn't blame his failure to make an impact over his first two NFL seasons on his fall down a flight of stairs in July 2010. He sustained a fractured skull in the fall and missed his entire rookie season. He also permanently lost hearing in his left ear. As I wrote today in profiling Kindle, he says the reason that he was only active for two games last year was that he couldn't get the playbook down.

Developers want to bring back Hammerjacks in a new concert and club venue near M&T Bank Stadium and the new Horseshoe casino. They have proposed locating the new Hammerjacks in the 600 block of W. West St. in what is now parking lot "N" for Ravens games. The plans, presented to Pigtown residents at a community meeting Tuesday night, call for a 50,000-square-foot, two-story building with a club and 2,500-person concert space. They also include a parking garage with about 400 spaces, which would be developed by the current owner of the property.

You gotta love Chad Ochocinco. The man doesn't just push the envelope. He tears the envelope into little pieces and laughs in your face. The Bengals wide receiver has been fined $25,000 for posting messages on Twitter during Cincinnati's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Oh, you know how it is. Sometimes in the middle of a football game, a guy's just got to pull out his phone and let people know what's going on in his life. First, Ochocinco tweeted during warm-ups: "Just talk with Kelly Washington, Desean Jackson, Geoff Pope, Hank Baskett and I caught a ball from Mike Vick, I love prw-game warm up. " Then he tweeted about two hours into the game, after taking a big hit: "Man Im sick of getting hit like that, it's the damn preseason (expletive)

Fresh off their second Super Bowl title, the Ravens will raise ticket prices at M&T Bank Stadium for the 2013-14 season, their first increase in four years and their sixth since their downtown stadium opened in 1998. When season ticket holders get their renewal letters this week, they'll see an average increase of 10 percent per ticket in the seating bowl area, according to Kevin Byrne, the Ravens senior vice president for public and community relations. That does not include club or suite level seats, which will likely see a smaller increase from last season.

Steve Bisciotti was still a minority owner of the Baltimore Ravens when planning began for the team's new training facility in Owings Mills. After his staff canvassed other National Football League teams about what they liked, or might do differently, in their headquarters, he turned the team's wish list over to an architect. He wasn't pleased with the results. "He said it looked like his junior high," said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president for public relations. "He said he wanted something warm, welcoming and something that looked like it had been here for 100 years.

Football Ex-Raven Sharpe to Black College HOF The Black College Football Hall of Fame announced Tuesday that former Ravens tight end Shannon Sharpe has been selected for induction next year along with 10 others. The inductees will be honored Feb. 16 at the Loews Hotel in Atlanta. NFL Network's Charles Davis will serve as master of ceremonies. Before going on to win two Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos and one with the Ravens in 2001, Sharpe was a three-time All-Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection at Savannah State from 1987 to 1989 and the SIAC Player of the Year in 1987.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am not here today to trash Chad Henne. Chad Henne is a perfectly fine young quarterback. He might also be great to his mom, kind to animals and a tireless giver to charity. But there can be no disputing this: He's no Joe Flacco. Not at this stage of his career, anyway. OK, where's Flacco at this stage of his career? Well, he's hardly a finished product. He has a lot to learn. But all he has done since he came into the league is win. Last year, he became just the fourth starting quarterback since the AFL- NFL merger in 1970 to reach the playoffs in his first two years in the league.
