Ravens running back Bernard Pierce can take his time healing his injured quadriceps. He can hang out in the whirlpool and get a couple of deep tissue massages. Get some more ultrasound treatments. If he wants, take another week or two off. I'm a supporter of the big back club and the Ravens have two of them in rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro (226 pounds) and, when he returns, in Pierce (230 pounds). Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis made a believer out of me. A team can have a home-run hitter at tailback, but there is nothing more demoralizing in football than a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 230-pound running back shoving the ball down your throat.

Inside the Ravens' locker room late Sunday afternoon, rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro smiled and did his best to shrug off compliments from veteran teammates. Taliaferro, a fourth-round draft pick, rushed for a game-high 91 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries during a 23-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Those were Taliaferro's first NFL regular-season carries after primarily playing on special teams in the Ravens' first two games. Taliaferro provided a boost to a backfield that was missing starter Bernard Pierce because of a quadriceps injury and no longer has Ray Rice after his $35 million contract was terminated in the fallout from his domestic violence incident.

To stay in touch with her, Taliaferro has opened a Gmail account and is slowly but surely conquering the new-to-her world of electronic messaging. It's slow going: Until this fall, Taliaferro didn't know what "sign ons" or "screen names" were. "I really wasn't too interested," Taliaferro said of learning how to use e-mail at this late stage. "But I wanted to see what goes on today. My children are all on this stuff.

M.F.K. Fisher, 83, whose elegant prose and keen observations raised food writing to the art of literature, died Monday at her home in Glen Ellen, Calif. She had suffered from Parkinson's disease and arthritis. From her childhood in Southern California through old age in Northern California and across thousands of miles in between, Mrs. Fisher was enthralled by food. She used food as a means of exploring life, and the passion she displayed for an eggplant or an apple seemed more truly concerned with people and their hunger, the real subject of most of her widely acclaimed books and articles.
