Coffee Companion (9/1): Ray Rice apology dominates trade deadline news

The Baltimore Sun

Yesterday was the biggest media circus in Baltimore in years, and we all survived. Here are the fruits of it in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the local sports headlines from the previous day.

- Ravens running back Ray Rice’s first public comments since his two-game suspension for his domestic assault arrest went over well yesterday, with Mike Preston saying the apology was the first step towards forgiving the veteran running back. However, on the same day as the apology, three U.S. Senators wrote a letter to the team and league imploring them to revisit the suspension.

- The Orioles offense couldn’t come through with a big hit — or many hits, really — in a 1-0, 13-inning loss to Anaheim Thursday. The best news of the day came when the team acquired left-handed reliever Andrew Miller from Boston. Miller has been lights out for the Sox this year.

- The Ravens got some bad news yesterday when it was confirmed that rookie defensive end Brent Urban tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

- Gilman football star Kai Locksley committed to Florida State, ending the possibility that he could play for his father at Maryland.
