He also added two tackles and one tackle for a loss against the Reading Express in the first round of the playoffs.

Wilde Lake lineman Moise Larose decommitted from Rutgers on Thursday night and has committed to play for Maryland, according to Wildecats coach Mike Harrison. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Larose was an All-State and second-team All-Metro offensive lineman last season, but he has been even more impressive on the defensive side of the ball this fall. Larose had committed to Rutgers as an offensive tackle, but Harrison said last month that the coach had been getting a lot of calls from college coaches who would rather see him on their defensive lines.

Offensive lineman Ryan Jensen hadn't felt like his normal self for a long time. He was visibly groggy from a lack of sleep. He was more irritable than usual. And he didn't feel as energetic as he needed to be on the Ravens' practice field. It turned out there was a reason why. Jensen recently was diagnosed with and treated for severe sleep apnea, a life-threatening disorder when left untreated. It also might have played a role in Jensen's being cut by the Ravens on Saturday after a preseason performance the 2013 sixth-round draft pick from Colorado State-Pueblo wasn't pleased with.

During his decade playing for the Ravens, gritty defensive lineman Kelly Gregg anchored the nose tackle position in a fairly revolutionary way. Gregg did more than just clog up the middle and prevent blockers from touching star middle linebacker Ray Lewis. As one of the most underrated players in the NFL -- he was never selected to a Pro Bowl -- Gregg was uncommonly active in pursuit and frequently penetrated the backfield as he recorded 548 tackles and 20.5 sacks in his career.

There's plenty that distinguishes Ravens rookie offensive lineman John Urschel from his teammates, including his prodigious academic career and potential in the field of mathematics. But what I couldn't fit into Sunday's story was the fact that, with all of his football and academic responsibilities, Urschel taught two classes at Penn State - and did it well, by all accounts. Urschel said it's not typical for master's students to teach at Penn State - that responsibility typically goes to doctoral students.

Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata can likely expect to hear from the league office in the near future. Ngata kicked Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. 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.
