When former Gilman star Cyrus Jones Jr. finished sorting through his 40-plus football scholarships following his senior season, he concluded Alabama was the right place for him. This time of year, the big game in front of him, is why. "One of the main reasons I wanted to come to Alabama was to have a chance to play at the highest level and compete for a national championship every year," said Jones, who has made an impact in his freshman season...

It had been a long time since David Reed had done something productive on the football field. It had been even longer since the last time he did something on offense. But in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Denver Broncos, the wide receiver and return specialist caught both balls thrown in his direction - one for 12 yards in the third quarter and the other for 10 yards in the final frame. The receptions were Reed's first since the Ravens selected him in the fifth round of the NFL draft in 2010.

The Chesapeake Bayhawks strengthened their offense with attackman Grant Kaleikau as their first pick (16th overall) in Wednesday's Major League Lacrosse supplemental draft. Unlike most other teams in the league, the Bayhawks acquired an offensive-heavy total of 15 players during the draft, which was conducted by the MLL general managers and coaches via conference call, including J.P. Dalton (St. Mary's), who won the 2012 NCAA championship with Loyola. Kaleikau, a Germantown native who played at Delaware, was selected by Bayhawks with the 27th overall pick in the 2012 Collegiate Draft but was not protected at the end of last season.

In the first meeting between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens escaped with a 13-10 win on the strength of a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones in the first quarter. Keeping Jones' prowess on returns - he leads the NFL in kick return touchdowns with three this season - in mind, the Steelers did their best to limit Jones' opportunities in their 23-20 win against the Ravens Sunday. Jones returned three kicks for a total of 74 yards, but he didn't get past the Ravens' 26-yard line.

Jacoby Jones may have sat out Wednesday's practice because of an ankle injury, but the Ravens wide receiver said there's no question that he will be available for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I'm playing,” Jones said before Thursday's session. “I'll be on the field.” Jones, the offense's next wideout option after starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, said his ankle injury was not serious. “Just a bruise,” he said. “When you get something like that, there's just a little soreness that you need to get out. I'm ready to roll though.” The Ravens could lessen Jones' workload by reducing his role on returns.

A generous amount of doubt surfaced regarding the effectiveness of the Ravens pass rush due to the continuing absence of outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, but no one can blame Haloti Ngata for not doing his part. This season, the 6-foot-4, 330-pound defensive tackle is tied with inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe for the team lead in sacks with 2½ and is tied for fourth in tackles with 16.  Ngata, 28, opened 2012 with two sacks in a Week 1 44-13 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals and split a sack with Ellerbe in Sunday night's 31-30 win against the New England Patriots.
