After a three-hour practice, Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown signed a couple autographs, spoke briefly to reporters and then jogged back to the practice field to catch more passes from the JUGS machine. Brown, the second-year player who set a Ravens franchise rookie record in touchdown receptions last season, had his best practice of training camp Sunday, making a series of contested catches. It was another positive step forward for a player who struggled to hang onto the ball in the various offseason minicamps but now appears to be hitting his stride.     “At the end of the day, I just want to be a guy who is consistent, who is reliable, who you can count on everyday, not just on certain days,” Brown said.

Some of our representatives in Congress have started to weigh in on the NFL's decision to suspend running back Ray Rice for only two games, as if they don't have enough to do already. There is fighting the Middle East, a confrontation in Ukraine, immigrants illegally crossing our borders by the thousands and veterans not getting their benefits, and our legislators are coming down heavy on the NFL and the Ravens about the Rice suspension. If anything, they should work to improve our justice system, which did absolutely nothing to Rice.

Ravens starting cornerback Lardarius Webb is expected to miss at least half the preseason with a lower back injury. Webb has been sidelined since experiencing back spasms during the second day of practice. The Ravens are holding out some hope that Webb, who had offseason sports hernia surgery, could be back by the third preseason game. "He's has some things going on in there that aren't long-term things," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "I'm not going to give you the exact diagnosis of it, but it's probably as much as me as anything.

Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak said one of the biggest competitions of training camp is at wide receiver. "In all my years in the league, I don't know that I've ever seen as competitive a situation as we have at receiver right now," Kubiak said. "I would have no chance telling [coach] John [Harbaugh] which five or six I would want right now. " The top of the depth chart includes Steve Smith , Torrey Smith (Maryland) and Jacoby Jones , with Marlon Brown the likely fourth receiver.

Veteran strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil arrived at his second training camp with the Ravens last week bigger than he did the previous year, but said Thursday that he's adapting to his added bulk well thus far. “It was a little adjustment, but I think I'm on the right track, so I feel good about it,” Dumervil said Thursday. “[I'm] just trying to maximize every opportunity in practice, in training camp, so by Week 1, we'll be hitting and ready to roll.” Dumervil said he added weight - he's now listed at 253 pounds - for physical and mental reasons.

A worn and fractured rail along train tracks through Ellicott City caused the coal train derailment that killed two women in 2012, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday. In its final report on the accident, the NTSB said it found evidence that the section of CSX Transportation rail showed signs of "gradual deterioration of the rail-head surface" from passing trains. The finding makes official preliminary conclusions about a rail break contributing to the accident that were released in a docket of investigatory documents last month.

Two of the Ravens' most promising defensive rookies suffered injuries Wednesday at training camp. Defensive end Brent Urban, a fourth round draft pick out of Virginia, was carted off the field into the training room, unable to put weight on his right leg. Urban has injured his right knee and will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam tonight to determine the severity of the damage. Urban had ankle surgery in February following the Senior Bowl, but had fully recovered from the procedure.
