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 had a great week. I'm on top of everything. Nothing has changed since being at IMG Academy. I'm eating good. I'm taking care of business. I'm working out and spending time with my family. We had a nice get-together at my mom's house. We play card games, mostly spades. I'm just starting to play. My grandfather was my partner in spades. He's doing pretty good. There's still a little piece of cancer left in his stomach. He's in high spirits. He's staying strong. He has a positive attitude.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars of the game when the Ravens (1-1) travel to Cleveland for a third straight division matchup against the 1-1 Browns. 1. Browns RB Isaiah Crowell Fellow rookie Terrance West is stealing the headlines in Baltimore because of his Towson and Northwestern High connections, and it's good to see him entering his first game against his hometown team carrying some success.

Terrance West is over the fact that his hometown Ravens did not draft him. Now, the former Towson Tiger is focused on being the featured running back for the upstart Cleveland Browns. That his opportunity continues against a Ravens team that he developed many ties to makes it more special. "It's going to be fun, like playing against another high school," West told reporters on a conference call Wednesday. "Back in high school, I played at Northwestern. It's like playing against Forest Park - guys that you know.

The Towson offense moved the ball against Old Dominion and actually outgained the high-powered Monarchs. But the Tigers fell behind early and simply couldn't recover in time. Towson was 10 points down before it ran a play and never caught up as Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke threw for 264 yards, ran for 71 more and accounted for three touchdowns to beat the Tigers, 31-20, in a Colonial Athletic Association game at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The Tigers beat Old Dominion, 39-35, last year en route to the CAA title, and the Monarchs certainly remembered that.

There are three finalists competing for the Walter Payton Award, which is given to the most outstanding player in the Football Championship Subdivision. As far as Rob Ambrose is concerned, there is only one deserving winner, and that player is Towson junior running back Terrance West. As West's coach, Ambrose does not pretend that his perspective might not have a black-and-gold tinge. But after watching West set a FCS playoff single-game record with 354 yards and five touchdowns in the seventh-seeded Tigers' 49-39 upset of No. 2 seed Eastern Illinois in Saturday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal -- outdueling Panthers senior quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (321 yards and two scores)

It didn't take long to figure out Towson's game plan against Delaware State. Hand the ball off to junior running back Terrance West, and do it often. That strategy worked, with West rushing for five touchdowns - tying Tony Vinson's single-game school record - and carrying the Tigers to a 49-7 victory over the Hornets in Saturday night's home opener at Johnny Unitas Stadium. “I'm not worried about any records. I'm just worried about the national championship,” West said.

The absence of starting wide receivers Spencer Wilkins and Leon Kinnard for seventh-seeded Towson's second-round game against Fordham in the NCAA Division I Football Championship this Saturday at Johnny Unitas Stadium might be seen as a crippling blow for the Tigers' passing offense. It could also be viewed as even more of a burden on junior running back Terrance West, who leads the country in average rushing yards (155.4 per game) and rushing touchdowns (30) and ranks second in rushing (1,865 yards)

Cleveland Browns rookie running back Terrance West stood at one end of the field at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday, watching the first half of his former school's season opener against Central Connecticut State. The Tigers probably wish West had been on the field, and not in the stands, for their 31-27 loss to a Blue Devils team that went 4-8 in 2013. A mostly gold-clad crowd of an announced 8,058 was treated to an uneven performance by an offense and defense just seven months removed from playing in the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game.

In more than two decades on the sidelines, Towson offensive line coach John Donatelli had never seen anything like it. After a recent practice, the Tigers' offensive linemen didn't join their teammates in walking to the locker room, getting showered, and going home. Instead, the linemen removed their pads and voluntarily ran sprints from one end zone to the other and back. They ran three laps before junior right tackle Jake Schunke and sophomore right guard Sam Evans signaled the end. The reason for the extra work?

Towson running back Darius Victor had a front-row seat to the scintillating runs that Terrance West made last year during the team's march to the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game. And one of the things Victor, then a freshman, admired was West's patience. "Last year, I rushed to the hole sometimes," Victor recalled. "I made a couple good plays, but I rushed some things. Terrance had great patience. He would tell me, 'Little bro, did you see that?' Everything he did, he would tell me, and that's why I love him so much.

Towson fullback Emmanuel Holder was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association first-team after a 2013 season in which he caught 16 passes for 172 yards and three touchdowns and opened running lanes for record-setting tailback Terrance West. But the Baltimore native and Calvert Hall graduate says he doesn't get consumed by individual attention. “I don't try to get into it a whole lot,” the junior said with a slight smile on his face after Thursday's practice at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

The Ravens have never denied that they liked and had interest in drafting former Towson star running back Terrance West . But they are contesting West's characterization of what transpired during Day 2 of the draft. West told Cleveland reporters over the weekend that the Ravens texted his agent and relayed to him that they were planning on drafting the local standout with the 99th overall pick in the third round. As it turned out, the Browns made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers to get the 94th pick, which they used to select West.
