Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Sunday that the team's medical staff believes he tore his left Achilles tendon early in the second quarter of the team's 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 11th-year veteran suffered the injury on a play that occurred away from the ball. He said he believed his foot was stepped on as he ran. Immediately after the play, Hall lay, writhing in pain, near the right side of the field, the opposite side of the field from where Eagles running back Darren Sproles had been tackled.

Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth will miss the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Foxworth was a surprise absence from practice Friday, the first full-team workout for the Ravens. He was seen limping off the field during orientation practice Thursday (which was closed to the media). The Ravens are extremely thin at cornerback to start training camp. Along with Foxworth, Fabian Washington (removed from physically-unable-to-perform list) and Lardarius Webb were both not suited up for practice.

A vacant home on an East Baltimore block used for a "pop-up" mural that was commissioned by the city caught fire Thursday morning. The fire was reported around 6:30 a.m. in the 2400 block of E. Eager St., where 35 homes were painted earlier this summer with the words, "Forever Together. " Ian Brennan, a spokesman for the city Fire Department, said units found fire showing from the first and second floors, and the blaze was brought under control after about 23 minutes. Brennan said the cause of the fire was under investigation.

Ravens wide receiver Marcus Smith is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, his agent confirmed Friday. Smith, who was vying for one of the top four wide receiver spots, injured his knee in the second quarter of Thursday's 23-0 win over the Washington Redskins. There is no timetable for Smith's surgery, but it could be performed in the next week if the swelling goes down. "He was having a good camp and had an opportunity for a lot of reps," said Kevin Omell, Smith's agent.

Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala confirmed yesterday that sophomore defenseman Matt Drenan, who started all 14 games for the Blue Jays last year, will miss the 2007 season because of a left knee injury he suffered during a recent practice. Pietramala said Drenan, 6 feet 2, 220 pounds, had surgery late last week to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He said Drenan will request a medical redshirt and play for three more years at Homewood. "You never want to lose a kid like Matt.

College Park -- Maryland linebacker Alex Wujciak, who was pushing for a starting job and is highly regarded by coach Ralph Friedgen, will miss the season with a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament. Wujciak had a magnetic resonance imaging yesterday and will undergo surgery, Friedgen said. "That's a blow for us right now," Friedgen said. Wujciak slipped on the turf Tuesday and hyperextended his knee, Friedgen said. He got up and continued to practice a bit more before taking himself out. That leaves Trey Covington and Jermaine Lemons as the Nos. 1 and 2 players, respectively, at the Terps' Leo position (linebacker/defensive end)

Washington -- The Orioles got the worst possible news on the health of Matt Albers. A magnetic resonance imaging of the right-hander's pitching shoulder revealed yesterday that he has a torn labrum, an injury that could cause him to miss the rest of the season. Albers, who was not available to comment yesterday, is considering whether to rehabilitate the injured cartilage, which would keep him sidelined for the next two months, or to have season-ending surgery. If Albers, 25, has the surgery, he won't be on the mound for eight or nine months, manager Dave Trembley said.

Ravens rookie defensive lineman Brent Urban has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, coach John Harbaugh said Thursday. "We got bad news on Brent Urban," Harbaugh said. Urban will undergo surgery to repair the damage for the season-ending injury sustained while being blocked to the ground by offensive tackle Jah Reid on Wednesday. "It was a clean tear, which is positive," Harbaugh said. "He's been through this before. It was a one-on-one block and it was just a situation where one guy was blocking the other and the knee just buckled on him. " The injury was immediately regarded as serious Wednesday when Urban knocked over during a block by offensive tackle Jah Reid.

It happened in the first quarter of Navy's wild overtime victory over San Jose State two Saturdays ago. It happened in the last regular season game before the Midshipmen get to play in their version of the Super Bowl , next week's 114th Army-Navy Game. It's something that happens just about every week somewhere in the football world, but it shouldn't have happened to this kid. Senior wide receiver Matt Aiken pulled in 10-yard pass and felt a shoulder pad crash into his left leg. He knew right away that something was wrong, because he already knew way too much about what football can do to the inside of a healthy knee.

Pity poor Lansing Avenue. One block and about 20 homes just off Broadway and North Avenue was all city planners gave it, and it couldn't even sustain that. Residents say it was a decent place to live until the drugs came, which also led to shootings and set fires. The good residents got fed up, the bad ones didn't care, everyone moved out, and nature took over. For years, pigeons have claimed one of the roofless brick rowhomes. Another is called the "Tree House" because a trunk has burst through the second-story window, prying a concrete block addition away from the main structure and sprouting leafy branches that provide a cool, if unwanted, canopy.

When Peter Athens joined the rest of Towson's starting offense in the huddle for the Aug. 29 win over Connecticut, it culminated a five-year period for the quarterback that included knee surgery, one season on the men's lacrosse team and almost deciding to walk away from football. Making his first start since Oct. 1, 2011, was a surreal and modest moment for the 6-foot-1, 220-pound fifth-year senior. "I didn't anticipate anything," Athens said of his expectations. "I came in for my fifth year hoping that I could start.

A magnetic resonance imaging test on Sidney Ponson's right thumb yesterday revealed that the right-hander has a torn ligament and will be out at least three more weeks. Ponson has been on the disabled list and hasn't pitched since Aug. 7, when he was removed from a start in Texas after 2 1/3 innings with a strained right calf. His thumb was initially injured on July 28 against the Rangers when he took a ground ball by Sandy Alomar off the thumb in the third inning. Ponson worked out and threw a bullpen session in Oakland, Calif.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- The image is as indelible as one can get in these MTV days of dizzying cuts: A short-haired Natalie Imbruglia stalks her apartment as she ponders her boyfriend's ambivalence in the video of "Torn," her No. 1 song. The track came off an album, Left of Middle, that sold more than 6 million copies in 1997. Her second album, White Lilies Island, sold a relatively tepid 1 million last year. Now Imbruglia, 28, is retooling her career with a third album in the works and a role as the babe in the spy spoof Johnny English, which opens Friday after earning more than $100 million in Europe.

The row of brick duplexes on Yakona Road in Towson has been empty for months, the occupants gone after reaching a settlement with Hess Corp. over claims that a leaking gasoline tank had contaminated their properties. This summer, the houses are scheduled to be razed, and a 2-acre park is to be built in their place. But while some neighborhood residents welcome the new park, others are raising concerns. They fear they might be financially responsible for maintenance costs and worry that it will attract criminals.
