Baltimore Ravens injury report: who’s playing, who isn’t
"Left guard Kelechi Osemele did not practice this week, and is listed as questionable to play Sunday in Tampa Bay.“He could play on Sunday and have not practiced all week,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “He has a chance to play on Sunday.”Osemele has been the league’s third-best guard this season, according to Pro Football Focus. The third-year 6-foot-5, 330-pound mauler has been especially strong in run blocking, and a big reason for the Ravens’ success on the ground."
Ravens wanted to keep Bucs running back Bobby Rainey
"There seems to always be those underdog preseason stars that Ravens fans adore, such as safety Omar Brown and wide receiver LaQuan Williams.Running back Bobby Rainey may be at the top of that list.Rainey is one player who fans wish hadn’t gotten away – and the Ravens wanted to keep him, as well.The 5-foot-8 Rainey, who the Ravens signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012, has made it big in Tampa Bay, and will face his former team this Sunday."
Justin Forsett wants more responsibility after playing well this season
"Earlier this week, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh blithely said that he didn’t care who starts at running back.Apparently, Justin Forsett does.After the week’s first practice in preparation for the team’s trip to Tampa Bay, Forsett could still be seen on the field taking extra sprints in full pads over the full width of the field."

Ravens defense wants more interceptions
"The Ravens were trailing the Colts by 10 points in the third quarter and badly needed a play.Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck went deep, trying to hit receiver Hakeem Nicks on a double move. Ravens rookie safety Terrence Brooks wasn’t fooled, and got a hand in on the play. But he didn’t see fellow safety Darian Stewart coming from the other side to make what should have been an easy interception.The two Ravens violently collided, leaving Brooks in pain and the ball on the turf.This is the kind of play Head Coach John Harbaugh would like to see made."

Steve Smith blames himself for down game against the Colts
"Steve Smith Sr. hasn’t proven to just the Carolina Panthers that the 35-year-old receiver can still play.He’s shown the entire league. And it seems Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano was paying attention.Following Smith’s huge two-touchdown, 139-yard performance against the Panthers last week, Smith got extra attention from Indianapolis’ defense on Sunday.That contributed to Smith’s lowest output of the season yet, as he caught five passes for 34 yards after averaging over 100 yards per contest through the first four games."
