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 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.

With training camp set to officially open next week, the Ravens are still waiting for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to rule on the status of running back Ray Rice, but they have more pressing concerns going into the first quarter of the season. Rice faces suspension for an incident in February in which he is accused of knocking out his then-fiancee during an altercation. The prediction here is that Rice will be suspended for two to four games. The Ravens have capable replacements, but there are deeper concerns.

There was a time not so long ago when the opening of Ravens training camp was a good excuse for local fans to turn the page halfway through another disappointing baseball season, but times have changed. When the Ravens begin workouts this week, they will be the ones trying to turn the page on a disappointing 2013 season and an embarrassing offseason everyone around the Under Armour Performance Center would like to forget. Nobody wants to lead the league in tawdry off-the-field incidents - certainly not Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who has little patience for conduct that casts any shadow over the football operation.

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.

During his rookie season last year, one of the toughest adjustments for Ravens outside linebacker John Simon was learning the nuances of pass coverage. At Ohio State, the gritty former Big Ten Conference Player of the Year lined up at defensive end, defensive tackle and linebacker while operating primarily as a pass rusher and run-stopper. Simon rarely was asked to drop back in pass coverage in college. So, playing in reverse has become a major point of emphasis for Simon following a quiet rookie year in which the fourth-round draft pick played on special teams.

The last time that C.J. Mosley made the transition to a higher level of football, he had no trouble adjusting. Mosley quickly emerged as a starter as a true freshman at Alabama and showed himself to be a playmaker, running back an interception for a touchdown against the Florida Gators. He was named a freshman All-American. Now, the Ravens' first-round pick in the draft is getting acclimated to the NFL and making his bid for an immediate starting job at weak-side inside linebacker.

Should we be happy for them? Ray Rice and the former Janay Palmer, his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two-year-old daughter, celebrated their marriage last week at the Four Seasons Baltimore in front of friends, including fellow Ravens Torrey Smith and Lardarius Webb.  Rice and Palmer, you may recall, were married in a private ceremony in March, a day after he was indicted on third-degree assault charges for allegedly knocking her...

Lauren Cox, the wife of Ravens long snapper Morgan Cox, was not amused by Drake's song about cheating athletes at the ESPYs this week. Cox wrote a rambling blog post Thursday titled " Drake, take your 'side pieces' and shove it " -- a sharp contrast to her other posts, which usually discuss Bible verses. It's a little hard to parse Cox's writing, but apparently she was incensed that the event celebrated Michael Sam coming out as the first openly gay current NFL player while Drake's performance made light of athletes' infidelities.

I would want a decent-sized break in the middle if I played baseball every day from March to October too, but since I don't, I can fairly say that this week is unbearable and I'm glad sports are back tonight. You can tell how little has happened in the past day by all the analysis found in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's sports headlines. - The Orioles open the second half with three games in Oakland, the team that was responsible for Manny Machado's reputation taking a hit but ultimately might have also sparked his turnaround this year.
