A day after he was indicted on charges of third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly knocking his fiancée unconscious, Ravens running back Ray Rice and Janay Palmer got married. Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith said today that he visited Rice and Palmer after Friday's ceremony and they are "in a good place. " "Everyone knows that we're tight. I'm tight with Ray, I'm tight with Janay. He is like a brother to me and she's like a sister to me and my wife as well," Smith said at his charity basketball game.

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.

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.

Should we be happy for them? Ray Rice and the former Janay Palmer, his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two-year-old daughter, celebrated their marriage last week at the Four Seasons Baltimore in front of friends, including fellow Ravens Torrey Smith and Lardarius Webb.  Rice and Palmer, you may recall, were married in a private ceremony in March, a day after he was indicted on third-degree assault charges for allegedly knocking her...

Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens beat writer: The Ravens did exactly what an elite team should do to an overmatched opponent. They took control of the game early and broke the Rams' spirit in the first quarter. Obviously, Joe Flacco connecting with Torrey Smith for three touchdowns could have a huge impact going forward as the rookie was badly in need of a jolt of confidence, and the Ravens sorely needed to establish a downfield threat. It was an ideal tuneup for the Jets showdown next week.

On Sunday, Torrey Smith flashed the fleet feet and natural ability that made him a 2011 second-round draft pick, scoring touchdowns on his first three NFL catches and finishing with five catches for 152 yards. Two games into his NFL career, one that started three months later than originally scheduled because of the lockout, the rookie out of Maryland was being scrutinized by fans and a few media members. After his eye-opening performance in the Ravens' 37-7 victory over the Rams, Smith will probably be under more pressure to make this kind of difference every week -- a totally unrealistic expectation.

The Ravens are standing by Ray Rice no longer. After months of publicly supporting the much-maligned running back, the Ravens terminated Rice's contract Monday afternoon on the same day video surfaced of him striking his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J. casino elevator in February. The decision came after a morning meeting with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, team president Dick Cass, general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh. “It was not a long meeting and we came to the decision that we came to, to release Ray,” Harbaugh said at a Monday evening news conference following the team's walk-through practice.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has joked about cutting off his dreadlocks before but never  followed through with it. Even getting pulled down to the ground by his hair two seasons ago by Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones wasn't enough to convince Smith that he needed to get rid of them. However, Smith apparently has had a change of heart. He joked on his Twitter account earlier today that he was thinking about cutting his "locs. " When asked why, he wrote that he was "getting tired of them.

Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson looks back at the Ravens' game each week and looks ahead to their next opponent. GAME PLAN: Instead of airing it out and employing a no-huddle offense the way they did frequently in ineffective fashion during a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens scrapped the hurry-up approach and adopted a balanced, gritty approach. There were just a dozen shotgun snaps out of 65 offensive plays, zero no-huddle plays. They ran the football downhill, gaining 157 rushing yards on 36 runs to wear out a visibly tired Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

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.

John Harbaugh walked toward the back of the bench to exhort the fans, wagged four fingers in the air to signal the start of the final quarter and welcomed big defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the sideline with a flying chest bump that left the Ravens' head coach falling backward.   Despite one of the most trying weeks in franchise history, Harbaugh told general manager Ozzie Newsome on Wednesday that he sensed his team was ready to play well and was he ever prophetic. The Ravens broke the trend of close games against their biggest rival by dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-6, in front of an announced 71,181 at M&T Bank Stadium and a prime-time television audience.

When the Ravens' offensive line and fullback Kyle Juszczyk stepped in unison to their right Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers defense was convinced that a trademark outside-zone run was headed in that direction. It was a faulty assumption, as quarterback Joe Flacco sold the Steelers on his play-action fake before lobbing the football to tight end Owen Daniels wide open in the left corner of the end zone for the Ravens' first touchdown of a 26-6 victory. How Daniels slipped out for the 2-yard score during the first quarter at M&T Bank Stadium was an example of the kind of offensive balance the Ravens are hoping to build.

Steve Smith is not to be messed with. The Ravens wide receiver, fresh off his 80-yard touchdown catch Sunday against the Bengals that temporarily gave his team a 16-15 lead, had some choice words for his former employer, the Carolina Panthers. According to Sports Illustrated , the Vine floating around was on NBCSN's "The Turning Point. " "And if you [expletive] think I can't play?" Smith yelled at the camera. "You're going to find out in Week 4 [expletive]. " The Ravens host his former team, the Panthers , in Week 4. To be fair, Smith was getting chirped at by Bengals defenders for the entire game.

In the off-season, when the Baltimore Ravens' Torrey Smith isn't trying to refinish his floors, he's lobbying Congress. The wide-receiver headed to Washington Wednesday with the hopes of convicing lawmakers to help America stop being so fat and sluggish. Smith was there, with a contigent of other star athletes, seeking support for the "Get America Moving" program. Leading the charge was the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association, a group that apparently hopes America, as it "gets moving," buys a lot of balls, bats and cup protectors to do it. On Twitter Wednesday morning Smith, immediately after asking for recommendations for someone who can refinish wood floors at a good price, said the idea of Washington made him "feel important haha.

With a team-leading 13 receptions and three touchdowns of 20 yards or more, Torrey Smith has solidified his reputation as the Ravens' most productive deep threat this season. The wide receiver ranks fifth in the NFL with 17.9 average yards per catch and leads the team in touchdown receptions with seven. Smith caught a career-best seven balls for 144 yards in last Sunday's 16-13 overtime win against the San Diego Chargers.

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.
