Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley was inactive for the first half of the season, playing catch with quarterback Trent Dilfer on the scout team. On Sunday, he was playing catch again, this time grabbing an important 13-yard pass on third down, among others, right in front of the Oakland Raiders' sideline in the third quarter of the Ravens' 16-3 AFC championship victory. In two Sundays, Stokley - who epitomizes the Ravens' season as well as anyone - will likely start in Super Bowl XXXV.

Maryland has yet to make a decision on whether quarterback C.J. Brown will play against No. 20 Ohio State on Saturday. However, Brown has been practicing this week and has looked good in practice, according to sources. Brown suffered a sprained left wrist during the Terrapins' win over Indiana last week. Brown has completed 57 percent of his passes for 996 yards and seven touchdowns with three interceptions. He leads Maryland (4-1) with 266 rushing yards and five TDs. If Brown does not play, Maryland will turn to backup quarterback Caleb Rowe , who was 12 of 18 for 198 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions after replacing Brown against the Hoosiers.

For years, war terminology has seeped into football telecasts. Quarterbacks become "field generals," games are equated to "battles. " Tehuti Miles knows better. After four years in the Army - including a stint in Afghanistan, where he wielded an M4 during watch duty - Maryland's first-year practice-team running back has earned the right to dismiss the comparison. He knows all too well that the football-as-war metaphor amounts to hype. "We all know it's not the same thing," he says.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland coach Randy Edsall called freshman Will Ulmer in for a meeting Monday. When they sat down, both agreed it would be best for Ulmer to make the move from quarterback to wide receiver. Ulmer was committed to being a quarterback through preseason practice. But he worked some at wide receiver with the scout team as the Terps prepared for their season opener against James Madison last week, and Edsall said Ulmer is now excited about the prospects of playing his new position.

As they prepared to meet Navy in Monday's season opener at M&T Bank Stadium, the Maryland Terrapins gave themselves an advanced course on the intricacies of the triple-option offense. The Terps studied Navy's offense on film. Coaches asked the scout team to simulate the multiple-faking attack without a ball. Then they brought the ball back and drilled some more. "It is very, very difficult to defend," said Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen, whose team enters the season on a seven-game losing streak.

Navy's scout team was supposed to replicate Notre Dame during a scrimmage Friday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The white uniforms and gold helmets were a pretty good imitation of the Fighting Irish; the players inside them were not. Led by junior quarterback Trey Miller , who will be making his second career start against Notre Dame, the result was a 45-0 victory for the first, second and third teams of the Midshipmen who will likely be...

To Maryland nose guard Rick Fleece, the sudden emergence of Mark Mason as the Terps' tailback of the future is neither mysterious nor surprising.Fleece, a senior starter, got his first dose of Mason when the freshman from Montgomery County's Churchill High was on the scout team and running opponents' plays against Maryland's first-string defense."

COLLEGE PARK - In March 2010, the boy's basketball coach at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Prince George's County found himself suddenly shorthanded in double-overtime of a playoff game against Wise. His frontcourt thinned by injuries and foul trouble, coach Brendan O'Connell turned to a bulky sophomore backup - Shawn Petty - who had played little during the regular season. "I think most sophomores would have just panicked," O'Connell said. But what struck O'Connell is how unfazed Petty seemed.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but in this space this year, we will provide a look ahead, rather than back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what coach Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play No. 5 Virginia at Comcast Center at noon Sunday.

Winning last year's Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament was a breakthrough for Loyola. This spring, the program was just an overtime loss to Denver on April 13 away from completing an undefeated season in the league and earning the top seed in this week's conference tournament. The No. 5 Greyhounds (11-3) will face No. 8 Ohio State (10-3) in one semifinal Thursday night at Hobart in Geneva, N.Y. No. 3 Denver (11-3) and No. 19 Fairfield (8-6) will tangle in the other semifinal.

Most of the 27 Navy seniors who will honored before Saturday's final home game against Texas State have contributed to the team's success on the field the past four years. But those who have made limited appearances - or even none at all - seem to share in that experience as much as those who have had starring roles. Matt Shibata, who came to Annapolis from Honolulu, has been in for a "handful of plays" at wide receiver. Offensive linemen Evan Campbell and Beau Haworth , who came from nearby high schools with the same football dreams as their fellow plebes, have not played a single down.

The coach held the clipboard above his head. "Bud, you're there. Ed, you're here," he said. "Everybody got it?" The huddle broke, and each assumed his position on the practice field. On the other side of the football stood some of the biggest giants in Maryland - Ravens offensive linemen ranging from 305 to 340 pounds. Quite an imposing sight for ragtag bunch outfitted in jeans and sneakers, a "defense" that features a rookie who's 41 years old. Don't laugh - the nose tackle is 62. All season, this group of area firefighters has assumed the role of the opposing team's defense at early-morning practices.

Lardarius Webb appears to be practicing fully and with few limitations, but there are signs pointing to the Ravens cornerback sitting out Monday night's season opener against the New York Jets. First, Webb is listed behind both Fabian Washington and Chris Carr on the team's depth chart, which was updated Wednesday morning. Second, coach John Harbaugh conceded on his weekly cable TV program Tuesday night that he is "not anticipating" Webb's presence. "We're not going to rule him out for Monday night, but I'm not anticipating him either," Harbaugh said as transcribed by the team.
