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.

Dirk Nowitzki missed the Mavericks' home game against the Cavaliers on Sunday night because of soreness in his elbow, where two teeth belonging to the Rockets' Carl Landry wound up following a collision a few nights before. "I tried (shooting), but it's just too sore," said Nowitzki, his arm bandaged from his elbow to his wrist. Nowitzki needed several stitches to repair the gash in his right elbow, which he suffered during the second quarter of an overtime loss Friday to the Rockets.

One chilly winter evening in 1988, I was the lone journalist among a small clump of voters gathered inside an old meeting hall in Manchester, N.H. I was there, mostly out of curiosity, to witness the spectacle of a man desperately clinging to a shattered dream. The dream was the presidency. The man was Gary Hart. Mr. Hart had once been sure it was his destiny to be president of the United States. The previous spring -- perhaps convinced of his own inevitability and invulnerability and only weeks after declaring his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination -- Mr. Hart had taken a ride to Bimini on a yacht called "Monkey Business" accompanied by a young model named Donna Rice.

A new office, a new desk, a new editorial system, a new blog page and we're just halfway through the year. Welcome to the new home of the sports blog Slidelines. Since the first of the year, which seems not that long ago, we have said goodbye to some of our colleagues, sending them to a new office at the Baltimore Sun. We then packed up and moved to a different office in downtown Columbia, which means a new address and a new phone number. We've been given new deadlines and new responsibilities.

Editorial from The Aegis | February 26, 2013
In sport, fittingly enough, there are two competing schools of thought on the nature of athletic competition. "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing," is the credo of one of the schools of thought. "It's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game," is the noble proclamation of the other. It's possible to make a credible argument that either sentiment is at the heart of what makes physical competition such a vital part of what it means to be human. Indeed, it is possible to conclude that the ideal of winning doesn't necessarily mean running faster, jumping higher or scoring more points against a worthy opponent, but that winning is simply the act of performing at the highest level possible.

CLEVELAND -- Troy O'Leary has been a symbol of the Boston Red Sox's season, a Milwaukee Brewers castoff who had a career season and contributed to an improbable division championship.But the outfielder isn't part of the Boston postseason roster, after suffering back spasms during a workout Monday. Red Sox manager Kevin Kennedy replaced him on the playoff roster -- Reggie Jefferson and Matt Stairs, who had been vying for one spot, were both included on the final roster."Troy said normally in spring training he comes up with some kind of spasm like that," Kennedy said.

Two weeks after losing senior quarterback Brian Hampton to a season-ending knee injury, Navy has lost a fixture on its offensive line to the same ailment. Junior right tackle Josh Meek, who started all eight games for the 5-3 Midshipmen, will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the second half of Saturday's 38-14 loss to Notre Dame. Sophomore Andrew McGinn, who lost his job to Meek after suffering a concussion early in preseason camp, will replace him Saturday at Duke.

Actor Josh Charles, one of the stars of the TV series "Sports Night" and an avowed Ravens fan, was on the sidelines at the team's passing camp yesterday, feeding his "football fever." Charles, a native of Baltimore, described himself as "a huge Ravens fan" who often would change the script on "Sports Night" to reflect a better result for the team. "That was the one place I'd draw the line on," said Charles, 28, who grew up in Mt. Washington. "They'd have me saying the Ravens lost, and I wouldn't do it."

With Greg Gumbel and Trent Green as the CBS broadcast team on today's Ravens game, I was eager to see how Gumbel would fare without his old, gaffe-prone partner Dan Dierdorf. I figured Gumbel had to be better, right? Wrong. “Welcome back to an absolutely beautiful day in Baltimore, Maryland,” Gumbel said in his opening remarks as viewers saw an overhead shot of M&T Bank Stadium. “The sun is shining, the temperature is 78 degrees on this last day of September ...” Oops.

Days after Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe was barely able to hobble back to the huddle against the Cleveland Browns, he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to address the issue. Although Monroe isn't expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on Wednesday Monroe won't play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers and could miss additional games. With the left tackle situation having reached emergency status, Monroe will be replaced in the starting lineup by undrafted rookie James Hurst.

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was robbed of what would have been the crowning moment of his young NFL career Sunday when an illegal procedure penalty was called on rookie running back Terrance West for not getting set in the backfield. Manziel, who feigned leaving the field after his lone snap at quarterback for the game, was standing near the sideline - but still on the field - with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan when he set off into a go-route into open space and hauled in what would have been a 39-yard completion.

I'm sorry, I tried to be good and accept life as a small-market CBS sports fan, getting the fourth-string crew and no sideline reporter for Ravens games. And, you have to admit, I managed for a couple weeks to sound like a properly grateful peasant in accepting the crumbs from the table of CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus. Did I not even say in one review that maybe CBS is right, it would be too expensive for the network to have sideline reporters on ALL the Sunday afternoon games - especially in markets like Baltimore?

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin displayed his sense of humor Tuesday when asked if Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones needs to watch out for him on the kickoff team Thursday night. "No, I won't be," Tomlin said with a laugh during a conference call with Baltimore reporters. "Tell Jacoby he's safe. " Tomlin was fined $100,000 by the NFL last season for sideline interference when he nearly collided with Jones, jumping out of the way at the last moment to avoid colliding with the Pro Bowl return specialist.

Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels remained sidelined with leg soreness Tuesday. Daniels hasn't practiced in the past week, but coach John Harbaugh emphasized Monday that the two-time Pro Bowl selection isn't injured. Daniels was limited to five games and 24 receptions last season with the Houston Texans due to a broken leg. In training camp, Daniels told The Baltimore Sun that he's 100 percent recovered from the leg injury from last season. "I don't want to get into specifics too much, but when you have legs and you have hamstrings and groins and stuff like that, there's wear and tear on those things," Harbaugh said.

Training camp has taken a toll on Towson's stable of tailbacks. All seven running backs were held out of Wednesday's practice at Johnny Unitas Stadium because of a variety of injuries. Perhaps the most distressing scene involved sophomore Darius Victor -- the Colonial Athletic Association's Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2013 and the anticipated starter this fall -- applying ice to his left foot and then wearing a walking boot on the same foot. But coach Rob Ambrose called the ailment plaguing Victor minor, saying, “He's not going today.

Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels didn't practice Wednesday and was given the majority of the day off, according to offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. Kubiak said Daniels is fine. Daniels completed a joint practice Monday with the San Francisco 49ers. He was signed to a one-year, $1 million contract in March after a stint with the Houston Texans. Daniels is a two-time Pro Bowl selection. Tight end Dennis Pitta (sprained ankle) is practicing. Meanwhile, safety Brynden Trawick (back)
