David Reed was healthy and active for the first time since sustaining a left shoulder strain on Sept. 18, but the NFL leader in kick return average last season didn't get the nod to assume that duty Sunday. Instead, that honor went to Bryan McCann, who totaled 53 yards on two returns in the Ravens' 29-14 win against the Houston Texans. McCann, who had been signed by the team to a two-year contract on Oct. 4, was expected to back up Reed, but coach John Harbaugh acknowledged that lingering concerns about the strength and health of Reed's shoulder persuaded the coaching staff to go with McCann.

A day after Maryland committed to a gradual launch of its health exchange, state officials are still working out some key details — including where the opening day sign-up will be held — but experts say it could be a way to avoid a repeat of last year's botched rollout.  Several health experts said the approach that limits enrollment in the first few days could allow Maryland to "kick the tires" on its new website. "It's a controlled way to open enrollment," said Karen Pollitz, senior fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

In so many words, Billy Cundiff says he's not thinking about redemption. The game plan now is simple. Move on. Don't look back. What else can the Ravens kicker say? What else can he do? Shrivel up and die? Sit in the house with the blinds drawn and brood about that big miss? Re-play it over and over again in his head until it drives him crazy? You saw it. Hell, the whole world saw it. Cundiff sees it still, you can be sure. Closes his eyes and there it is: his pushed 32-yard field goal attempt that went wide left in the final seconds of January's AFC Championship, leading to the New England Patriots' shocking 23-20 win over the Ravens in the madhouse that was Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

Expect a big dose of Diggs when Maryland's football season opens Saturday at Byrd Stadium against William & Mary. Freshman Stefon Diggs, the highly-touted recruit, will be the punt returner and kick returner. He is also listed as a backup receiver, behind Kerry Boykins. He was lining up in the slot during practices and scrimmages. Maryland today released its new two-deep depth chart, announcing its starters for Saturday's game. While there was little mystery over many starting positions, here are three I was watching, and the outcomes: *Running back: Redshirt freshman Brandon Ross has supplanted Justus Pickett as the starting tailback.

Billy Cundiff continues to get a lot of hate from fans on talk radio and message boards, and we'll see what kind of reception he gets at M&T Bank Stadium tonight when the Ravens play the Jacksonville  Jaguars in their third preseason game. (He got a mixture of boos and cheers last week when the Ravens played the Detroit Lionsat the Bank.) None of the negative reaction is unexpected. The Ravens' kicker has steeled himself for it. When you miss a game-tying 32-yard field goal in the waning seconds of the AFC Championship game, you don't expect hosannas from the fans the following season.

The food bank reports that nearly 780,000 Marylanders experience so-called "food insecurity," meaning they don't know if they'll be able to access food for nutritious diet. Other partners joining in the effort - which includes food banks across the country for Hunger Action Month - are the state Department of Transportation, Charm City Run and Giant Food.

For only the second time since Rob Ambrose became Towson's coach, the Tigers will open the season with a game at home, welcoming Central Connecticut State to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The only other time in that span the Tigers played host to a season opener was in 2011, when they routed Morgan State, 42-3. Although Towson is just two games above .500 at home (15-13) under Ambrose, the program is 13-5 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the past three years, and Ambrose said the team's recent success has had a noticeable impact in the stands.

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.

Former Dunbar star William Crest's career in West Virginia has gotten off to an unusual start. While it appears unlikely the quarterback will have the opportunity to start with the Mountaineers this season, coach Dana Holgorsen has decided  Crest likely won't be redshirted . Perhaps even more surprising, however, was the reported sight of Crest fielding punts during practice this month. Apparently, Crest jogged out to the field with other returners on his own, not at a coach's urging.

Maryland football began preseason practice Monday. Here are some notes and observations from the first day: Sophomore running back Wes Brown looks good Brown was suspended last season and put on 10-15 pounds while he was away, but the former four-star recruit trimmed up leading into spring practice and looked good Monday. He appears to be in good shape, was moving well and had a couple runs in particular that stuck out. On one, he found a hole, got about 15 yards downfield and then made an oncoming defender miss with a move in the open field that elicited a loud reaction from teammates.
