Jeremiah Johnson sensed something was wrong with his foot, but he wasn't ready to process the signals his body was sending. After sweating with his teammates through weeks of spring practices and summer training camp, it seemed too sudden - too cruel and random - for Maryland's starting cornerback to be injured in the first game of the season on a routine special-teams play. The redshirt junior was blocking for kick returner Stefon Diggs against Florida International on Aug. 31 when his left foot buckled and one of his toes was pushed backward at an awkward angle.

All who hate mosquitoes and garden pests should be pleased with the news that the "Bike trail will spare bat refuge" (July 27). The last thing the best bat cave in the East needed to face was construction for a bike path and a steady stream of bikers. People can pedal elsewhere. Whole bat species are struggling to survive against the march of white nose syndrome. This fungus has decimated bat populations in the Northeast and is relentlessly spreading. Mortality is over 90 percent once a winter roost is infected.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis released a statement, through a team spokesman, regarding his regularly scheduled media availability.   “I apologize for not being available as I normally am on a day like today, but I am taking every opportunity to get treatment on my foot to prepare to play on Thursday. Anytime you see your team on the field, you always want to be out there with them. As the leader of your team, it doesn't sit well with me to be on the sidelines. But I was the biggest cheerleader out there on Sunday, and I was truly proud of the way we played as a team.

The Ravens will place Jonathan Ogden on the physically-unable-to-perform list when they report to training camp Sunday, but team officials said the 10-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle should be ready to play by the regular-season opener. Ogden hyperextended the big toe on his left foot against the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 17 and did not participate in any offseason minicamps with the team. Coach Brian Billick said Ogden will remain on the PUP list for an "indeterminate amount of time," although the Ravens knew this would be the plan for Ogden since the end of last season.

The artificial turf at M&T Bank Stadium has been unkind to a number of Ravens over the past year. Team officials, though, have no plans to return the favor. Even though four key players have had toe problems at home since November, the Ravens are sticking with their Sportexe Momentum turf for the foreseeable future, attributing the injuries more to circumstance and footwear rather than surface. Deion Sanders was the first to go down when he hurt a toe against the Cleveland Browns midway through last season.

For decades, the Orioles commanded a sweeping empire of fans - a territory larger than some European countries, stretching from southern Pennsylvania to North Carolina and including Washington, where the team operated a popular retail store. The club's games are still broadcast across most of the same region, but the Orioles now share much of it with the Washington Nationals, who are ensconced in a population-rich portion of what was once the Orioles' domain. The Nationals' arrival in 2005 created a complicated relationship in which the teams are at once neighbors, opponents on the field and, lately, bickering business partners when it comes to the regional television network they co-own but the Orioles control.

Towson's 7-6 upset of then-No. 19 and Colonial Athletic Association rival Hofstra last Saturday night extended the team's winning streak to three, but it also exemplified the squad's ability to emerge with close victories. This season, the Tigers (6-5 overall and 2-0 in the CAA), are 4-1 in contests decided by a single goal. They have beaten Mercer, Navy, Delaware and now the Pride by one goal and suffered their only one-goal loss in a 10-9 overtime setback to Marist. Coach Shawn Nadelen said the team's perseverance is a unique mixture of luck and resiliency.

The undisputed No. 1 team in Division I, Maryland is enjoying the fruits of its labor after Saturday's 12-10 upset of Loyola, the reigning national champion and the previous top-ranked squad. Off to their third 3-0 start in the last four seasons, the Terps are widely regarded as the team to beat thus far, but coach John Tillman wants to make sure that those accolades don't overinflate the players' assessment of their progress. “The confidence thing is always a tricky thing,” he said during his weekly conference call Tuesday morning.

Just a few days before their live performances of "The Nutcracker," the intensity and concentration were evident on the faces of the teenage performers at the Carroll County Dance Center in Sykesville. Each of the cast members at this rehearsal had previously performed in the legendary play, and there was a serious overtone to their latest production. This weekend, their steady rehearsal schedule will give way to the center's full-scale presentation of Tchaikovsky's classic. After two years at the Gordon Center in Owings Mills, "The Nutcracker" will return to the local stage on Saturday, Dec. 15, at 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 16, 2 p.m. Both performances will be held at the Carroll Community College's Scott Theater, 1601 Washington Road, Westminster.

When Jonathan Ogden hobbled out of the Ravens' locker room yesterday, it might have been for the last time. The 10-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle said there is a "possibility" he might retire and end his career after 11 seasons. "I'll take a week to try to let my toe get better and I'll see from there," Ogden said as players packed up their lockers yesterday. "I'll take some time away and re-evaluate some things. That's how it's going to be. I'll see what I want to do next year a little later on."

The Ravens will determine the stretch-run fate of injured fullback Obafemi Ayanbadejo next week after receiving a report from a foot and ankle specialist in Charlotte, N.C. The increasing possibility is that Ayanbadejo will require surgery for a torn tendon in his right big toe and that his season is finished. He first injured the toe on Oct. 15 against Washington, and aggravated it Nov. 12 against Tennessee. On Wednesday, after missing four of the team's last five games, he flew to Charlotte to visit Dr. Bob Anderson, who has handled the toe injuries of Deion Sanders and Reggie White.

This week, Gov.Martin O'Malleyis making a first, tentative use of one of his most fundamental powers as governor: to right injustices in the treatment of those who have been convicted of crimes. Mr. O'Malley is moving toward commuting the sentences of two inmates sentenced to life in prison, a welcome departure from his previous habit of simply ignoring the recommendations of Maryland's parole board in the case of lifers. He was pushed by the legislature, and he is wading gingerly into the issue.

Each week, we bring you a Q&A with a Ravens player, coach or team executive to help you learn a little more about the team. Today's guest is left guard Ben Grubbs. When you missed six games because of your turf toe injury, the offense averaged 96.5 rushing yards per game and 3.8 yards per carry. In the 10 games you played, those numbers rose to 141.7 per game and 4.6 per carry. You'll take the credit for that, right? I don't know. Ask the coaches. [Laughs.] I just play. I'm glad I could come back and contribute to this running game and to the wins, but I'm not about to pat myself on the back.
