Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, and if he is able to participate the rest of the week, it seems likely that he will reassume the team's primary placekicking duties Sunday. But if Shayne Graham suits up for a second straight game, he claims the Cincinnati Bengals will be just another team to him. Graham spent seven seasons with the Bengals before he and the team parted ways after the 2009 season. In a 24-14 playoff loss to the New York Jets that season -- his last game in Cincinnati -- Graham missed a pair of field goals.

WASHINGTON -- Mitch Richmond was glistening yesterday.The television lights at an MCI Center news conference might have had something to do with it, reflecting off his silver jewelry, his diamond earrings and bald head.But for the veteran guard, traded last week to the Wizards along with Otis Thorpe for Chris Webber, it also may have been a glow of happiness.Richmond long had wanted out of Sacramento, where he toiled for seven seasons, with just one playoff appearance.It wasn't supposed to be this way for him. Richmond spent his first three seasons in the league with the Golden State Warriors, reaching the playoffs each year while playing alongside Chris Mullin and Tim Hardaway.

He got married in March 2009, but his mother couldn't make it out of the Dominican Republic for the wedding, and Silveren asked Harner to walk with him down the aisle. "Oh my gosh, you can't even imagine what that meant to me," said Harner, wiping her eyes. Betsy and Michael Harner became close to Silveren by opening their home to him as a host family.

The Maryland native will begin his third season this week fishing the Bassmaster Elite Series, an eight-event competition that every year provides a pipeline to the Classic.
