first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — Left guard Ben Grubbs made his long-awaited return to the field in Pittsburgh last Sunday night.Might wide receiver Lee Evans be next?The veteran wideout returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since Oct. 12 when he tried to practice after the Ravens’ bye week. Evans has been dealing with a left ankle injury that’s sidelined him since the Week 2 loss in Tennessee, but he’s appeared more upbeat over the last week in discussing his status. Coach John Harbaugh said last week the Ravens have not considered placing the 30-year-old receiver on injured reserve.Though it’s far too early to determine Evans’ status for Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, his return would provide another viable option to an improving passing game that’s depended on rookies Torrey Smith and LaQuan Williams as wide receivers behind veteran Anquan Boldin.Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe also returned to the practice field for the first time since injuring his thigh in the Ravens’ win over the Houston Texans on Oct. 16.Left guard Ben Grubbs was practicing after telling reporters he made it through Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh without damaging his right toe any further. However, the turf toe injury will be a factor for the remainder of the season, according to the fifth-year offensive lineman.“It’s not any worse, but it still hurts definitely,” Grubbs said prior to Monday’s practice. “I think I’m able to maintain and I’ll be able to continue to play this season.”The only player missing from Wednesday’s practice was center Matt Birk, who is often given the day off on Wednesday as a way of resting his surgically-repaired knee.Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo (concussion) was practicing on Wednesday but said he would not take part in any contact until being cleared later this week.last_img read more

Additionally, ITV Racing’s magazine preview programme, the Opening Show, will continue each Saturday and on every day at the Cheltenham Festival, the Grand National and Royal Ascot.Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport, stated: “ITV is delighted to announce the continuation of free to air coverage of a sport that is loved and followed by so many.  To do so following a successful resumption of the sport with wide audiences returning to our coverage after such a long lay-off is particularly welcome and we look forward to bringing the very best this wonderful sport has to offer to viewers over the next few years.”Richard FitzGerald, Chief Executive of Racecourse Media Group (RMG), added: “ITV has been a terrific partner for British horseracing over the last three years and ITV has earned the right to renew the contract for a further three years. Its award-winning productions are reflected with increased audiences, in contrast to wider TV audience trends, and they have succeeded in attracting a new, younger audience, without alienating in any way the existing fanbase. “We look forward to working closely with the broadcaster in ensuring racing remains in this fantastic shop window provided by ITV and all its platforms. I’d also like to thank all the sport’s participants, particularly the jockeys, for the positive roles they have played in engaging with the ITV coverage.”The revised agreement is reportedly valued between £8m – £9m, an increase on ITV’s current fee of £7.5m. In 2020, ratings for ITV’s coverage are 22% higher than in 2019 and 45% higher than in 2016 when the rights were held by Channel 4. Viewing for ITV4’s coverage is also 2% higher than for the equivalent events shown on C4 in 2016.  The agreement was expected to be completed as early as New Year’s Day in 2019. But over the past year and a half, there have been multiple hurdles getting in the way of an extension. This includes Ascot’s decision to partner with Sky at the beginning of 2019, ITV’s disagreement over a reduction in broadcast fees due to the Grand National’s cancellation, and a streaming rights dispute with Arc.Juliet Slot, Chief Commercial Officer, Ascot Racecourse, commented: “The extension of our highly successful terrestrial partnership with ITV is great news for Ascot. It is a pleasure to be a part of this award-winning partnership with ITV which has seen continued growth of audiences across all our race meetings. We look forward to the next three years’ working together to bring Ascot’s racing to existing and new audiences across the ITV portfolio of platforms.” David Leyden Dunbar, ARC Director of Partnerships, concluded: “The whole team at ITV Racing have done a tremendous job of showcasing our sport on terrestrial television since 2017.“Bringing our biggest meetings and stars to the widest possible audience is of huge importance to the whole industry and we believe that the ITV team are perfectly placed to deliver for the benefit of everyone across racing.”last_img read more
