When Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco handed the football off and threw swing passes to Ray Rice this spring, he had a close-up view of the three-time Pro Bowl running back's physical transformation. Rice had regained much of his old quickness, displaying an ability to run away from defenders that all but disappeared during the worst season of his NFL career last year. Rice has lost roughly 20 pounds since last season, when he weighed as much as 225 pounds while struggling with hip and quadriceps injuries that robbed him of his ability to elude pursuit or break tackles.

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration, asserting that federal judges are handing out lighter prison sentences since a Supreme Court decision gave them more sentencing discretion, backed a new system of "guideline minimum" sentences this week for criminal cases. The proposal by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales would seek to give judges continued flexibility in setting jail terms while requiring them to justify any sentence lighter than the guidelines. Gonzales offered few details but said "serious consideration" should be given for such an approach.

If there was one moment this spring when former Oriole Pete dTC Incaviglia went from being a long shot to a lock in the Detroit Tigers' camp, it was when the nonroster invitee ripped a ball into the gap during an exhibition game and didn't stop running until he reached third base.Doubles and home runs had been Incaviglia's calling cards. A stand-up triple?The ball didn't get stuck in the fence, either. It was all Inky, 40 pounds lighter and unwilling to fade into oblivion."Actually, I had three of them.

Outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw dropped roughly 20 pounds over the summer after tipping the scales at 295 pounds in June. Upshaw attributed that weight gain to missing workouts while dealing with personal issues in his home state of Alabama. Although he still has more weight to drop to get into optimal condition, Upshaw moved around more fluidly and seemed to have better stamina after appearing sluggish during a June minicamp. “I feel great. I'm still working to get down some more pounds,” Upshaw said.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center will provide a guest post. This week, Christine Dobmeier weighs in on healthy holidays. Holiday season is in full force. In the grocery stores, there are large displays of chocolates in every shape and form, and at work a parade of cookies, popcorn tins and other confections arrives every day. This onslaught of goodies is happening while we are still trying to work off our Thanksgiving indulgences. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, it's easy to lose track of your health goals and see weight trend up. It may be challenging to lose weight at this time of year, but a good goal is to prevent weight gain and to go into the New Year already on a healthy path.

Mayan legend that explains how these beautiful birds were created from spare parts left over when the other birds were created by the Mayan sun god. The plumage of a ruby-throated hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) shimmered in the early-morning sunlight as it darted back and forth while sipping nectar from the blossoms of a red-flowered rosebush. Plus, it was so preoccupied with feeding, my presence didn't appear to disturb it, even though I was a mere 3 feet away.

The Ravens go through their first full-team workout of training camp Thursday and if you want to see something special taking place in the hot, thick air at the Castle, you keep your eyes on Ray Lewis. Watch him run around in those baggy sweats like someone half his age. Listen to him talk trash with his teammates and coaches. Watch him flash that Chiclets smile every five minutes, too, the smile of a man who seems perfectly in his element. And do yourself a favor. If you get a chance to talk to him, don't ask when he plans to retire.

Wednesday evening, a leaner -- though not necessarily meaner -- Ray Lewis stepped outside of the Under Armour Performance Center and strolled to a microphone stand surrounded by reporters and video cameras. The 37-year-old inside linebacker was noticeably lighter than he was at the end of last season, and his white polo shirt and dark slim-fitting jeans showed off the streamlined physique that Lewis spoke about last month. He said at the mandatory minicamp that the weight loss was calculated, a response to the Rob Gronkowskis and Aaron Hernandezes of the world and the high-scoring passing offenses that have taken over the league.
