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.

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.

The most unsettling sight for the Ravens was not getting stuffed on two fourth-and-shorts or their inability to establish a running game. It was quarterback Joe Flacco frequently running for his life and then picking himself up off the turf. Flacco took a beating against a blitz-happy Washington Redskins defense, but he finished the first half - and likely his preseason - by engineering a drive that the Ravens hope is a sign of things to come for the first-team offense. Flacco hit a diving Steve Smith on a 24-yard touchdown pass, the highlight of the Ravens' 23-17 victory in front of an announced 70,876 at a wet M&T Bank Stadium.

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.

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.

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. This Sunday, Smith faces a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that has troubled him in the past.

Ray Rice was one of three Ravens who took a break from the team's offseason workout program Tuesday to chat with reporters. He appeared to be wearing black pajama pants, so maybe a nap was next on his agenda. Before he took off, he was asked about Torrey Smith, who is expected to be the team's top receiver in 2013. In his second NFL season, Smith caught 49 passes for 855 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. His 17.4 yards-per-catch average was among the highest in the league in 2012.

Veteran wide receiver Steve Smith is expected to inject toughness and productivity into the Ravens' offense. The five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is also providing confidence, predicting that the Ravens will be difficult for opposing defenses to game-plan against considering the amount of options new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak has to choose from. That includes wide receivers Steve Smith, Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown, tight ends Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels, running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce and fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

The Ravens are banking on an encouraging start against the San Francisco 49ers in the preseason opener to set an aggressive tone for their red-zone offense under the direction of new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. Last season, they were one of the worst red-zone outfits in the NFL, ranking 31st in the league in red-zone efficiency. They scored just 24 touchdowns on 52 trips inside opponents' 20-yard line. This year, though, the Ravens are displaying signs of turning around one of the most frustrating aspects of their 2013 season.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has mostly stuck to his script from previous preseasons, which means Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins will be quarterback Joe Flacco's final dress rehearsal for the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco hasn't played in a preseason finale since his rookie year in 2008 and it's hard to imagine that would change this year, not with the Ravens opening the regular season with three divisional games in a 15-day span.

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.

John Harbaugh confirmed Monday that cornerback Lardarius Webb won't play this preseason as he recovers from a lower back injury, though the Ravens coach does expect to have cornerback Jimmy Smith back on the field soon, perhaps for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins. Smith, who left Saturday's preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys early in the first quarter with a chest injury, had a magnetic resonance imaging test taken. Harbaugh said it revealed some bruising and a “little bleeding from the lungs.” “They said it's not a serious thing,” Harbaugh said.

When I chatted with former Terps wide receiver Torrey Smith on Monday about his future with the Ravens , I had to get his take on the retirement of Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams. The legendary men's coach surprisingly called it quits two weeks ago and the school scrambled to hire Mark Turgeon a few days later. Smith says Williams' fist pumps will be missed. "Gary was a great friend of the football program and he’s a great coach," said Smith, who can hold his own on the court . "I’m sure everyone’s going to miss that fist pump.

The honors keep coming in for Ravens rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith. Smith today was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week after he caught six balls for 165 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. The second-round pick out of the University of Maryland set a Ravens' rookie record for most receiving yards in a game when he caught a 38-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco early in the fourth quarter to give the home team a 31-17 lead against the Bengals.

Kamar Aiken has been in four NFL organizations in three years. He's been cut at the end of training camp and again during the regular season. Hardened and humbled by the experiences, the well-traveled wide receiver has adopted a mindset that will serve him well over the next 21/2 weeks as he attempts to secure a roster spot with the Ravens that very few people gave him a shot to win.

SETTING THE SCENE The Ravens' final official practice of training camp started around noon with a walk-through practice and ended just before 3 p.m. Most of the starters finished up just after 2:30 p.m. Players wore helmets and shells. Like it was for most of camp, it was sunny and relatively mild. LOOKING GOOD Tight end Dennis Pitta was sidelined earlier this week by an ankle injury and he spent the early part of practice testing it out. Once he got on the field, he certainly looked healthy, making several plays down the field.
