No amount of coffee will wake you up from the deep, nightmarish sleep you likely had while thinking about Matt Wieters' elbow injury. But in case that kept you up, blogger Jon Meoli writes the Coffee Companion, where Monday through Friday, he recaps the local sports headlines. Wieters Watch - Catcher Matt Wieters' forearm soreness late last month would have been disastrous were he a pitcher, but it could prove to be so anyway. Wieters is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews to get an opinion on his MRI. Ed Encina points out the Orioles are being mum on the issue , but forearm soreness is a precursor to Tommy John surgery, which would end Wieters' season and likely be a crippling blow to the Orioles.

The Ravens nearly had to replace Joe Flacco in the lineup late last season when the usually durable starting quarterback was hobbled with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Although Flacco managed to gut out the final two games of the regular season and avoid missing a start for the first time in six seasons, the situation offered a reminder that the Ravens need a viable contingency plan should their franchise quarterback ever be sidelined. With current backup Tyrod Taylor displaying mixed results in spot action and entering the final year of his rookie contract, the Ravens are exploring the possibility of drafting a quarterback this year.

Select an immediate standout early, an eventual starter or two later, then round out the class with a few rookie free-agent gems. For much of Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome's tenure, that's been his blueprint on draft day. "Once you start out [by drafting] two Hall of Famers in Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis, it's kind of hard not to go downhill from there," joked former Ravens head coach Brian Billick, now an NFL Network analyst. "But downhill is still pretty darn good. " The NFL draft is an inexact science.

While he was once a top-10 selection in the NFL draft, Eugene Monroe might not be in Baltimore today if not for compensatory picks. Back in October, when the Ravens acquired the left tackle in a midseason trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars, they did not balk when the Jaguars insisted the Ravens surrender two draft picks. That's because while the Ravens covet draft picks, they figured they would have a couple to spare because they would be rewarded with four compensatory picks after losing several key free agents after their Super Bowl win. They also figured that if they were to lose Monroe, too, this offseason, they would likely receive a prime compensatory pick for him next offseason.

I had a great week. I'm on top of everything. Nothing has changed since being at IMG Academy. I'm eating good. I'm taking care of business. I'm working out and spending time with my family. We had a nice get-together at my mom's house. We play card games, mostly spades. I'm just starting to play. My grandfather was my partner in spades. He's doing pretty good. There's still a little piece of cancer left in his stomach. He's in high spirits. He's staying strong. He has a positive attitude.
