TAMPA, FLA. -- Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith knelt in the end zone Sunday afternoon, pausing for a moment to pray after catching a slant pass from Joe Flacco in stride for a touchdown. The former Maryland standout was in a thankful mood during a resurgent game after arguably the roughest stretch of his career. One week after his dropped pass ended a late comeback attempt against the Indianapolis Colts, Smith was jubilant during the Ravens' 48-17 blowout victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

It was in 1970, a few months before the first Earth Day, when Torrey Brown, a Johns Hopkins physician, first took his place on the Maryland legislature's Environmental Matters Committee.Eight years later he became its chairman, and four years after that he became the state's secretary of natural resources, a post he held until last month, when the new governor did not reappoint him.His career has spanned so much of Maryland's environmental coming of age that some of the biggest battles are hardly remembered, he said in an interview a few weeks ago."

Torrey Smith learned a valuable lesson in his rookie season that is serving him well. The Ravens' second-round pick out of the University of Maryland in 2011, Smith struggled badly in his first NFL training camp and then was held without a catch in the first two regular-season games. The chatter had already started that he was the latest in a long line of wide receivers drafted by the Ravens who would never fulfill their potential. Smith quieted such talk with a three-touchdown, 152-yard receiving performance in Week Three against the St. Louis Rams.

A prominent psychiatrist called yesterday for more stringent controls over seriously mentally ill patients to minimize the risks of violence.In a lecture before the American Psychiatric Association, which concluded five days of meetings in Baltimore yesterday, E. Fuller Torrey, a psychiatric researcher at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, acknowledged that his views were not "professionally or politically correct."For too long, he said, psychiatry has bowed to the "civil libertarians," opening the way to avoidable acts of violence committed by a small portion of the mentally ill."

Dr. E. Fuller Torrey is known in the field of psychiatry as th doctor who has spent a lengthy career searching for and talking about the likelihood that a virus could cause schizophrenia.Not one of the dozens of microscopic bugs studied seemed to fit into the puzzle of mental illness. But now, after 20 years, the Washington-based researcher may have hit pay dirt with an organism that has never been described in humans but, for reasons yet unexplained, has shown up in about half the schizophrenics he studied.

Jumping into one of the liveliest debates in psychiatry, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions will investigate an unconventional theory that viruses or other infectious agents trigger schizophrenia.The project, made possible by a $7 million grant from the private Theodore and Vada Stanley Foundation of Arlington, Va., is a large effort considering its speculative focus. It will involve nine faculty members and nine research "fellows" to be recruited over three years.Most schizophrenia studies have been dominated by research psychiatrists and geneticists, but this one will be centered in the department of pediatric infectious diseases.

A Bethesda institute under fire in Maine for its efforts to obtain human brains for research has decided to quit acquiring the tissue. "We have no plans for future collections," Lori Keenan, a lawyer for the Stanley Research Institute, said yesterday. The institute, which supplies brain tissue for research on schizophrenia and other mental disorders, has faced two lawsuits from Maine families who alleged brains were taken from their loved ones without their full consent. Keenan said the decision to stop acquiring brains, first reported by the Portland Press Herald, has been in the works for several years and was not related to the controversy.

On Saturday, Ravens players Torrey Smith and John Simon will both be in Indianapolis, as the Ravens get ready for Sunday's game against the Colts. But while Smith and Simon take care of their own Ravens-related responsibilities, both will also be tracking what happens between Maryland and Ohio State on Saturday in College Park. Smith starred at Maryland before being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Ravens and still follows the team closely. “I don't know about the score, but I think we can beat them,” Smith said.

The arrival of veteran wide receiver Steve Smith didn't suddenly transform wide receiver Torrey Smith into the forgotten man in the Ravens' offense. That's been the net effect, though, for the former Maryland standout as Torrey Smith and quarterback Joe Flacco have struggled to connect on deep passes. Meanwhile, Steve Smith has thrived in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's system. Torrey Smith has been targeted 19 times and has caught just six passes for 85 yards while Steve Smith has been thrown to 31 times and has 18 catches, 290 yards and a touchdown.

Eluding cornerbacks with quick moves or tossing them aside with a mean stiff arm, wide receiver Steve Smith has been busy establishing himself as the Ravens' top offensive weapon through two games. Smith has been thrown to a team-high 25 times heading into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, making 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. Signed to a three-year, $11 million contract in March, the five-time Pro Bowl selection quickly has become the featured wide receiver that Andre Johnson was in Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans offense.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has spent the majority of the first two games running fly patterns and operating as something of a glorified decoy. The former Maryland star has been targeted 10 times and has just four receptions for 60 yards and no touchdowns. He drew one defensive pass interference penalty against the Pittsburgh Steelers on cornerback Cortez Allen that led to an Owen Daniels touchdown. Smith said he's not concerned about his workload and expects to get his touches as the season goes on. "I'm playing my part, and I know the ball is going to come more than it has been," said Smith, who caught a career-high 65 passes for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns last season.

The NFL has suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for an illegal hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Meriweather was penalized for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area when he struck Smith in the second quarter Saturday night during the Ravens' 23-17 victory. Smith was unhurt on the play. Meriweather also hit Ravens running back Bernard Pierce in the head, causing a concussion and forcing him out of the game, but it was a legal hit. This marks Meriweather's sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules regarding hits to defenseless players and impermissible use of the helmet.

Whether it has been Ravens officials, opposing quarterbacks, or media members, Ed Reed has a knack for keeping everybody guessing. Speaking from a personal perspective, you never know where the conversation will turn when you stick a microphone or camera in his face -- like last season when the free safety interrupted one postgame press conference to give a shout-out to the United States for winning the President's Cup.

As wildflowers go, Torrey's mountain-mint isn't that striking. The short-stalked plant sports white blooms in late summer, but otherwise would be hard to pick out in a leafy lineup. "You have to really be on a search to find it," says botanist Cris Fleming of Chevy Chase, who recalls spying some several years ago in a rocky outcrop on a Baltimore County farm. Even when they're looking for it, though, scientists have a tough time finding Pycnanthemum torrei these days. It's rare - recorded in fewer than 20 places in the world - and likely to get rarer still, as homes, shopping centers, roads and parking lots gobble up more land in Baltimore's sprawling suburbs.

Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels remained sidelined with leg soreness Tuesday. Daniels hasn't practiced in the past week, but coach John Harbaugh emphasized Monday that the two-time Pro Bowl selection isn't injured. Daniels was limited to five games and 24 receptions last season with the Houston Texans due to a broken leg. In training camp, Daniels told The Baltimore Sun that he's 100 percent recovered from the leg injury from last season. "I don't want to get into specifics too much, but when you have legs and you have hamstrings and groins and stuff like that, there's wear and tear on those things," Harbaugh said.
