Older brother John Harbaugh must have felt some compassion for younger brother Jim on Thursday night. Leading the San Francisco 49ers 23-3 with two minutes left in their preseason opener at M&T Bank Stadium, John ordered his Ravens into victory formation and rookie quarterback Keith Wenning took a knee on three straight snaps. It's surprising, because in previous years John Harbaugh has always had his team play hard until the final second, saying it was unfair to the players trying to make the team if they weren't given full opportunities.

Wes Unseld has never been one to seek the spotlight. Yet there he was on Thursday, surrounded by media, NBA players past and present and several hundred youngsters who packed the gym at the Unseld School in West Baltimore for the promotion of a Washington Wizards preseason basketball game to be played in Baltimore on Oct. 20. "It's a big treat for the kids here to see some of the old [Baltimore] Bullets and the new Wizards," said Unseld, 67, a Hall of Fame center who played 13 years for the franchise in both cities.

Weeks after falling awkwardly against the Dallas Cowboys and coughing up blood, Ravens starting cornerback Jimmy Smith proclaimed that he's made a full recovery. Smith suffered a chest contusion against the Cowboys and also had lung issues, but has been practicing since last week and says he's on track to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Smith said he won't need any extra padding to protect his chest. "I'm absolutely fine," said Smith, who's not listed on the first injury report released Wednesday.

The Ravens will maintain their tradition of having starters playing into the third quarter during their third preseason game Saturday night. Some starters might just play until halftime against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium. This will be the last preseason game for the starters, who will be rested during the fourth and final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints next week. “We're there stamina-wise, there's no question about that,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

The Washington Wizards will play a preseason game at Baltimore Arena for the second straight year, hosting the New Orleans Pelicans on Oct. 20. The Wizards announced their full 2014 preseason schedule Monday, with the second-annual Baltimore Classic included. That game will tip off at 7 p.m. The Wizards faced Baltimore native Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks in last year's game here. The Knicks won,  98-89, before an announced  12,376. That marked the first time Baltimore had hosted an NBA game since October of 1999, when the Wizards hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers in a preseason game.

When the Washington Wizards announced Wednesday that they would play a preseason game against the New York Knicks in Baltimore this fall, Frank Remesch wasn't surprised. As general manager of the Baltimore Arena, which will host the Oct. 17 exhibition, Remesch said the success of a Washington Capitals preseason game against the Nashville Predators in 2011 helped sway Ted Leonsis, who owns both the Capitals and Wizards. “I think it's kind of common sense,” Remesch said, noting that the Capitals will take part in a second Baltimore Hockey Classic against the Boston Bruins on Sept.

For the past couple of weeks, the Ravens' offensive starters have answered the question with little more than a dismissive shrug. No, they are not concerned that the offense has gotten very little going in about three quarters of work. They don't think it's a big deal that quarterback Joe Flacco has thrown one more interception than touchdown pass. They are not worried that Ray Rice has found yards and running room hard to come by or that the team's other receivers behind Torrey Smith have done nothing against a first-team defense.

If ever there was a first-line unit that needed to play longer than a quarter in the meaningless fourth preseason game it's the Ravens' offense. I'm all for letting established veterans on defense take a pass on this final preseason game. It doesn't serve any purpose at all for guys like Kelly Gregg and Chris McAlister to be out there. We know what they can do. But the Ravens don't have that luxury on offense. The quarterback situation aside, their starting tackles have hardly played.

The Ravens' second-string offensive line, featuring a combination of rookies and former starters, will get its most extended playing time Thursday in the final preseason game against New Orleans. Despite some injuries and shuffling within the unit during the preseason, coach John Harbaugh said he's happy with the group's performance so far in the preseason. “I think our depth on our offensive line is at least as good as anybody else's,” Harbaugh said. “If you look around the league, it's hard to have ten starting offensive linemen on your roster.

The NFL has suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for an illegal hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Meriweather was penalized for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area when he struck Smith in the second quarter Saturday night during the Ravens' 23-17 victory. Smith was unhurt on the play. Meriweather also hit Ravens running back Bernard Pierce in the head, causing a concussion and forcing him out of the game, but it was a legal hit. This marks Meriweather's sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules regarding hits to defenseless players and impermissible use of the helmet.

After three preseason games, the Ravens are back to square one. There were questions about the offensive line as training camp opened, and they surfaced again during Saturday night's 23-17 win against the Washington Redskins in preseason game No. 3 at M&T Bank Stadium. If this was supposed to be the offensive line's showcase performance before the start of the regular season Sept. 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals, then the Ravens have a lot of work to do. Ravens coach John Harbaugh is unlikely to start the entire unit next week in the final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints, but he has to be concerned.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has mostly stuck to his script from previous preseasons, which means Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins will be quarterback Joe Flacco's final dress rehearsal for the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco hasn't played in a preseason finale since his rookie year in 2008 and it's hard to imagine that would change this year, not with the Ravens opening the regular season with three divisional games in a 15-day span.

John Harbaugh confirmed Monday that cornerback Lardarius Webb won't play this preseason as he recovers from a lower back injury, though the Ravens coach does expect to have cornerback Jimmy Smith back on the field soon, perhaps for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins. Smith, who left Saturday's preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys early in the first quarter with a chest injury, had a magnetic resonance imaging test taken. Harbaugh said it revealed some bruising and a “little bleeding from the lungs.” “They said it's not a serious thing,” Harbaugh said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Ravens are in search of more continuity, less controversy and, most important, lasting confidence. In their final tuneup of the preseason, the Ravens (2-1) are taking a train ride north to the Meadowlands, where they look to get their young team on track tonight against the New York Giants (2-2). The defense wants to begin building chemistry with the preseason debuts of three healing starters - outside linebacker Peter Boulware, defensive end Michael McCrary and cornerback Gary Baxter.

State health officials are warning fans who were at Friday's Ravens game of a possible exposure to rabies via a bat. A bat landed on a person sitting in section 500 of M&T Bank Stadium as the Ravens played the Detroit Lions in a preseason game, officials said. It isn't known whether the bat had rabies because the person brushed it off and the bat flew away. But health officials said it's possible other people seated in the area could have touched the bat. But health officials are cautioning those who may have touched the bat during the game to contact their local health department.

The Ravens are approaching the time when they'll need to focus on getting backup running back Bernard Pierce the bulk of the workload in advance of starter Ray Rice's two-game suspension. The balancing act between how the Ravens should divide carries between Pierce and Rice is expected to become more of a hot-button issue heading into their third preseason game next week against the Washington Redskins. The third preseason game is when the Ravens traditionally play the starters into the third quarter since they won't play in the fourth and final preseason game prior to the start of the regular season.
