Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) is starting Sunday's game against the Titans.
Four-star guard and Maryland target Nickeil Alexander-Walker has committed to Virginia Tech, he announced via Instagram on Thursday evening.
Walker-Alexander, who is listed at 6-5, 175 pounds, is rated as the No. 91 overall player in the class of 2017, according to Rivals.com. He is a native of Canada who plays for Hamilton Heights Christian (Tenn.) and Under Armour-affiliated Canada Elite AAU.
So far this AAU season, he is averaging 15.1 points and 2.5 assists per game while ranking in the Top 15 on the Under Armour circuit with 15 made threes. He recently visited both Maryland and Virginia Tech.
Maryland does not yet have a verbal commitment in the class of 2017.
Watch his highlights below.
Three things to know about Ravens fourth-round pick (107), wide receiver Chris Moore from the University of Cincinnati:
1. Moore’s college breakout game came against Ohio St in 2014.
Everybody in the Buckeyes’ secondary who played against Moore remembers him. Moore had three catches for 221 yards and three touchdowns, and he also had a 40-yard touchdown nullified by a penalty. On two of those touchdowns, Moore burned highly-touted Ohio St. defensive backs - cornerback Eli Apple, who was drafted No. 10 overall by the Giants, and safety Vonn Bell, who went to the Saints in Round 2.
“When it came time to play against the best talent, I performed,” Moore said.
2. At 6-foot-2, 190 pound, Moore has the frame to be more than just a deep receiver.
“I practice running every route, every single day,” Moore said. “I run all the short routes too, so I’m not just a deep threat.”
3. The biggest knock on Moore is the drops he had in college.
The Ravens coaching staff, particularly wide receiver coach Bobby Engram, will be looking for ways to improve Moore’s concentration and technique.
Nationals (19-8) at Cubs (20-6)
After a successful road trip the Missouri whichs aw the Nationals best the reigning world champion Royals and the always dangerous Cardinals, they must do battle with MLB's best team: The Chicago Cubs.
The Nationals and Cubs are both considered top contenders to win the 2016 World Series, and while that is still months away, their first encounter will provide a small sampling of how the two teams stack up.
On top of that, Ben Revere, who suffered an oblique strain in the first week of the season, is expected to make his return to the roster in Chicago.
