Tony Fein, an Iraq war veteran who played for the Baltimore Ravens in the preseason and was arrested in a high-profile incident at the Inner Harbor, was found dead Tuesday in his home state of Washington, officials said. The 27-year-old linebacker was discovered face down and unconscious in the living room of a friend's townhouse in Port Orchard about 8:50 a.m., according to Mike Wernet, a battalion chief and medical officer for South Kitsap Fire and Rescue. Fein had vomited and was pronounced dead an hour later at a hospital, Wernet said.

Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis, who is due to be inducted in the team's Ring of Honor late next month, was arrested and charged with child abandonment Tuesday night. Lewis, 32, was booked in the Clayton County (Ga.) jail just before 11 p.m. Tuesday, and released shortly after midnight Wednesday, according to the report. Lewis, who retired in 2009 after playing nine seasons in the NFL, including six in Baltimore, has had no contact with his son for more than a year, according to court documents.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

For a decade in the NFL, fullback Vonta Leach built a reputation as of the most intimidating lead blockers in the game by delivering punishing hits that rattled linebackers' heads. Leach displayed uncommon pop as a blocker and was able to regularly jolt defenders out of the way with his superior strength and leverage. Now, the former Ravens and Houston Texans All-Pro fullback is a free agent hoping to play another year or two in the NFL after being cut by the Ravens in February.

For four years, six-time Pro Bowl center Matt Birk snapped the football to Ravens star quarterback Joe Flacco. Since Birk retired in February, the veteran lineman has passed another valuable commodity onto Flacco with the sale of his Baltimore County home to the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player quarterback for $1.385 million, according to records. Flacco purchased the home from Birk earlier this year after the quarterback signed a $120.6 million contract that included a $29 million signing bonus and a total of $51 million in guaranteed money.

While there will be more to say on this subject at the end of the week as the next big game draws near, it's worth taking a few lines here to give a shout out to the home team: Go Ravens! A cast of I-bleed-purple fans has descended upon the sidewalks of Harford County to paint team symbols. And it's hard to go anywhere without noticing just about everyone is wearing something purple after our purple and black birds won their first playoff game, which came in the second round of the postseason.

In an emotional message, the wife of former Ravens running back Ray Rice broke her silence Tuesday morning, one day after Rice's contract was terminated and he was indefinitely suspended by the NFL. Those events followed a graphic video surfacing in which Rice punched his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, whom he later married and now has his last name. The couple has been in counseling since the incident in February, which occurred at Revel Casino, which has since closed, in Atlantic City, N.J. The Baltimore Sun has verified that the following unabridged message from her official Instagram account is from Janay Rice and was intended to be released publicly: "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote.

With his season on the line and the careers of some of his Ravens teammates hanging in the balance, Joe Flacco stepped up in the pocket, swiveled his hips, uncorked his 6-foot-6 frame and launched the football. Denver Broncos safety Rahim Moore backpedaled and backpedaled as the ball floated through the bitter-cold Denver air and over his head. Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones opened his eyes wide as the pass somehow reached him, 20 yards from the end zone and 55 yards from where Flacco released it. "That ball dropped out of the sky. And there was only one place the ball could be caught," said ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, who played quarterback in the NFL for 15 years.

When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

For play callers like the Ravens' Gary Kubiak, achieving offensive balance is an elusive pursuit, a challenging and often frustrating endeavor that prompts sleepless nights and almost constant second-guessing. When Kubiak spoke to reporters on Thursday, the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts four days earlier was still fresh on his mind, and the questions about why his offense ran the ball just 15 times in the game seemed as pertinent as ever. "Last weekend, it's the least amount of plays we've run in a game, the least amount of time we've been on the field.

The Ravens survived an emergency situation at left guard when starter Kelechi Osemele was ruled out shortly before kickoff after testing out his bruised, hyperextended right knee during warmups. Osemele looked immobile while trying to do drills in the end zone, noticeably favoring his knee and unable to plant and change direction enough to convince the coaching staff and trainers to play him. So, the Ravens started rookie fifth-round draft pick John Urschel in place of Osemele after initially announcing that backup center Gino Gradkowski would start at left guard.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.

For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.
