As the Ravens await NFL commissioner  Roger Goodell's  ruling on  Ray Rice's   discipline, it's becoming more apparent that they won't be alone in going with the running back by committee approach during Rice's absence. There is wide-ranging opinion on how long Rice will be suspended for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy with his actions during a physical confrontation with his then fiancee and now wife in February. But it's certainly not impossible - and some view it as probable - that Rice is suspended for at least the first three games.

The attorney for Ray Rice suggested that the Ravens running back retaliated after being struck first by his then-fiancee during a domestic-violence incident in February. Philadelphia lawyer Michael Diamondstein, who helped Rice obtain approval for a diversionary program that will allow him to avoid jail time and offer the chance to have his record cleared in a year, appeared to give a detailed "hypothetical" account of what transpired at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., during a radio interview with Matthew Hammond of 97.3 ESPN-FM in New Jersey.

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.

The Ravens don't have a quarterback competition this year in training camp, but the team's quarterback depth is hardly the given it has been in previous seasons. Joe Flacco's primary backup, Tyrod Taylor, is in the last year of his rookie contract, and the team invested a draft pick this year on Ball State product Keith Wenning, who currently runs the third-string offense. No one involved is thinking about the team's 53-man roster construction before August even begins, but Taylor's uncertain future could force the Ravens to break form and sacrifice roster flexibility elsewhere to carry a third quarterback.

In the past five days, the Ravens' top cornerback ( Lardarius Webb ) went down with a back injury that is believed to be minor. The perceived favorite for the No. 3 corner back job ( Chykie Brown ) has been unable to keep up and now he's dealing with a minor hamstring issue. Another veteran candidate ( Aaron Ross ) sustained a season-ending Achilles' injury while potential contributor ( Dominique Franks ) took several days to pass the conditioning test. If the team's depth at cornerback wasn't a major issue before training camp began, it certainly is now. There have been some positive developments, too.  Asa Jackson   looks much more confident as he enters his third season.

The veteran inside linebacker started the first six games of last season at weak-side inside linebacker until Jameel McClain replaced him in the lineup after being activated from the physically unable to perform list. Now, Bynes is determined to make his presence felt at inside linebacker as he competes for playing time with first-round rookie C.J. Mosley and 2013 second-round NFL draft pick Arthur Brown.

The Ravens' top decision makers are always preaching about the importance of roster competition. They want it at every position, not just for starting roles but for special teams units and back-end roster spots. Heading into training camp which officially begins with the first full-squad practice on Thursday, the Ravens' front office has assembled a 90-man roster that will need to be whittled down to 53 in the coming weeks. The roster has a mixture of youth and experience and is particularly deep at wide receiver where 12 guys are competing for five or six spots.
