Maryland redshirt freshman wide receiver Taivon Jacobs will miss the rest of the season with the meniscus injury he suffered against James Madison on Saturday, coach Randy Edsall announced Monday on Twitter. Jacobs was injured two plays into the Terps' first drive when he got tangled up with a James Madison defender while attempting to track down a long pass from quarterback C.J. Brown. The news hurts the Terps at a position in which they already have lost depth. Jacobs likely would have played a significant role on offense this year, especially after his brother, Levern, was suspended for the season last week.

The Ravens pared their roster down to the NFL's required 53-player limit Saturday, choosing to keep two quarterbacks and seven wide receivers and leaving themselves thin at cornerback and along the offensive and defensive lines. Among their 13 cuts were veteran guard A.Q. Shipley, who started nine games last year; outside linebacker John Simon, a fourth-round draft pick in 2013; quarterback Keith Wenning, a sixth-round selection in May; and veteran cornerbacks Dominique Franks and Derek Cox. With Wenning's release, the Ravens will enter their fifth straight season with just two quarterbacks on the roster.

Tommy Streeter will never forget the pain he felt the weekend of the NFL draft. Projected by some analysts to be a second-day pick, Streeter remained on the board until late in the sixth round. But shortly after the Ravens ended his disappointment, his phone rang. Linebacker Ray Lewis was reaching out to the Miami Hurricanes wide receiver and welcoming him to the family. “I basically told him that I was ready to make that next step, ready to train,” Streeter said Sunday, the final day of the team's three-day rookie minicamp in Owings Mills.

Maryland wide receiver Deon Long has been suspended for two weeks for violating university policy. The suspension was disclosed today but began at an earlier date - meaning Long will return in less than two weeks. The university did not release further details. The Red-White game is April 12. Long, who grew up in the area and attended Iowa Western Community College, will compete for immediate playing time once the season begins. He began spring practices atop the depth chart at one of the receiver positions.

Now that the preseason is finally over, the next order of business for the Ravens is finalizing their 53-man roster, which will have to be done by 4 p.m. Saturday. The Ravens are currently at 75 players, so they'll need to make 22 moves over the next 36 hours or so. Two of the moves have already been made for them, as running back Ray Rice (two games) and safety Will Hill (six games) will start the season on the suspended list. That will save - at least temporarily - two players' jobs.

The Ravens' defense won't be competing against Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Josh Gordon this season. His one-year suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy was upheld by the league after an appeal was heard by vice president Harold Henderson. Gordon played just one game against the Ravens last season, catching three passes for 44 yards. He was serving a two-game suspension for testing positive for codeine that kept him out of the Browns' first game against the Ravens last year.

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.

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.

COLLEGE PARK -  Jacquille Veii used his speed and quickness to get open out of the slot, made a sliding catch across the middle during team drills and later made a 25-yard reception during the two-minute portion of practice. The Maryland sophomore was in only his first day as a slot receiver after being moved from running back Monday, but he flashed some skills at his new position during practice Tuesday night. “Yeah. I saw that,” Terps senior linebacker L.A. Goree said.

COLLEGE PARK -  Randy Edsall's plan all along was to re-assess Maryland's depth chart after the first week of preseason practice, and the coach announced two position changes before the Terps' practice Tuesday night. Edsall moved running back Jacquille Veii from running back to slot receiver and highly touted freshman offensive lineman Damian Prince from left tackle to left guard. “[They are] things that we think can help us,” Edsall said. Veii made some plays at running back during the first week of preseason practice and was the fastest and most elusive of Maryland's running backs, but the Terps are deep in the backfield with juniors Brandon Ross and Albert Reid and sophomore Wes Brown.

When the Ravens open the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, fans will take solace that Anquan Boldin and Lee Evans will start at wide receiver. There is, however, no such certainty with regards to the No. 3 receiver. When the offense goes to a three-receiver set, rookies Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss or LaQuan Williams could line up in the slot or on the outside. The development of the No. 3 receiver will be an important facet if the Ravens intend to improve as an offense.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland coach Randy Edsall made a deal with Will Ulmer before the highly touted athlete signed with the Terps in February. "I told Will during the recruiting process that he'll be a quarterback until he comes to me and tells me he doesn't want to be a quarterback,” Edsall said. For now, Ulmer, who was ranked as a four-star athlete by ESPN, remains focused on playing quarterback. Ulmer practiced strictly as a quarterback during the first week of Maryland's preseason practice.

San Francisco 49ers players walked around the Under Armour Performance Center on Saturday, following signs that directed them to destinations important over the next three days. Arrows pointed them to the dining area, the showers and the indoor training facility, which has been partially transformed to house San Francisco's locker and training rooms. Anquan Boldin didn't need the help. He knew his way around. It had been more than 16 months since the veteran wide receiver was last in the building, but Boldin was one 49er excited about the trip to the East Coast and the joint practices against the team with which he spent three seasons and won Super Bowl XLVII.
