Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers readers' questions on the Ravens' loss to the Indianapolis Colts and other topics about the team. What happened to the offense against the Colts, especially the offensive line?  Why didn't the Ravens run the ball more? The way this team is playing, they may have problems on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. - Craig, Winchester, Va. Craig, I don't think anyone understood offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's game plan.

Eight Ravens didn't practice on Wednesday, including six starters. The only players not expected to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, though, are offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, defensive end Chris Canty and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. Monroe is out for at least a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery prior to the Ravens' win over the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. Canty had successful wrist surgery and is out for two to three weeks, barring a setback, according to a source.

North Harford football coach Gene Liebel was named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week on Wednesday. Liebel, in his first year as head coach, earned the award after his Hawks came back to defeat Havre de Grace, 15-14, last Friday. Down 14-0 in the second half, North Harford quarterback Braden Stinar threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Chandler Schmidt and a 16-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Keating to bring the Hawks within one point of the Warriors. Rather than play for the tie, Liebel decided to go for the 2-point conversion.

GAME PLAN: The Ravens regressed offensively despite a concerted effort to spread the football around in the passing game. Trailing on the scoreboard and dealing with frequent pass-protection breakdowns, their reaction was to throw more instead of trying to pound the football on the ground. With Joe Flacco under duress, Gary Kubiak was unable to execute his strategy. A litany of failures on third down - they went 1-for-11 for a 9-percent conversion rate - prevented drives from getting untracked.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ravens running back Bernard Pierce ran hard through the middle for a pair of first downs in the third quarter Sunday, displaying no effects of a quadriceps injury that had hampered him for the past few weeks. Despite Pierce gaining 13 yards and 12 yards on his first two carries, the drive stalled and he would see limited playing time overall in his first game back. Pierce finished with 30 yards on four carries in the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

When the Ravens started talking about building a strong running game in August, there were images of the 1960 Green Bay Packers and the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak had built strong running games while in Denver and Houston, so expectations were high in Baltimore. Then came the 62 pass attempts by the Ravens in a season-opening loss to Cincinnati. There went the running game. But then the Ravens rushed for 157, 160 and 127 yards in the next three games, and the tough running approach was back.

Welcome to the Ravens Ten-Pack, where I'll go medium depth on 10 Ravens topics that came from the previous week's game. This was initially a Tuesday thing, but now it's a Monday thing, so read ahead for notes on Jimmy Smith, C.J. Mosley, the Ravens' offensive gameplan, and their inability to deal with pressure. 1. The early-game decision-making by both John Harbaugh and Colts coach Chuck Pagano was telling Sunday. The Colts went for it on fourth down on the opening drive, and the Ravens opted against a field goal on fourth down in the second quarter - which resulted in a silly play-action sack for quarterback Joe Flacco.

The Ravens had already lost starting tight end Dennis Pitta for the rest of the season with a hip injury and starting left tackle Eugene Monroe for about a month after he had knee surgery. Now, they know that they'll have to overcome the absence of two defensive starters for an extended period. A day after a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium dropped his team to 3-2, Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced that starting defensive end Chris Canty had surgery to clean out an infection in his wrist and starting cornerback Asa Jackson is in a walking boot because of a "very severely" sprained toe. Jackson, who had started the past four games opposite the team's top cornerback, Jimmy Smith, will be out a "number of weeks," Harbaugh said.
