Like many 12 year olds, C.J. Fair dabbled in many different sports. He played some baseball, a little football and anything his friends were into at the time. Then he started "growing like a weed," as his father Carl put it, and Carl asked him to pick one sport. C.J. chose basketball, and he and his friends - Antonio and Will Barton , Josh Selby and Nick Faust - began dominating anyone who stood in their way. They formed a super team, as the lanky lefty C.J. continued to sharpen his game at the John Eager Howard Community Center and around Baltimore playgrounds.

Coach John Harbaugh said at the end of mandatory minicamp Thursday that all of the Ravens who were limited or kept out this week by injuries could be back by the time training camp starts June 24. “I'd say it looks really good for almost all those guys,” Harbaugh said. Four players have been absent from all three days of minicamp: offensive lineman Jah Reid, nose tackle Terrence Cody, wide receiver Kamar Aiken and rookie offensive tackle Parker Graham. Cody also missed OTAs while recovering from offseason hip surgery, while Reid was out with a strained calf.

The San Francisco 49ers will stay in the Baltimore area for several days following their Aug. 7 preseason matchup against the Ravens to participate in joint practices with the team that beat them in Super Bowl XLVII.

"We will go back to San Francisco at some point in time -- probably next year," Harbaugh said. "We're looking forward to it. " The Ravens have never participated in joint practices with any team, although they did have scrimmages with the Washington Redskins.

As Russia's actions in Ukraine rattle its neighbors, the Maryland National Guard is affirming its decades-long partnership with Estonia. Maryland has helped to train Estonian troops since shortly after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Now it's preparing to send A-10 pilots and liaison officers to Saber Strike, an annual U.S.-led security exercise that focuses on Estonia and its Baltic neighbors Latvia and Lithuania. The commander of the Maryland Guard traveled to Estonia last week for meetings with Northern European defense ministers and U.S. military leaders.
