BALTIMORE -- The night was supposed to be about the long-awaited returns of quarterback Joe Flacco and linebacker Terrell Suggs.Instead, Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh ended up lamenting two significant injuries and a preseason schedule filled with games that are not meaningful.Flacco went 11 for 16 for 94 yards in his first action since November, but the Ravens apparently lost tight end Benjamin Watson for the season during a 30-9 preseason victory over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night.After Watson tore his right Achilles tendon on the games first play, promising rookie running back Kenneth Dixon left in the second quarter with a sprained knee.Harbaugh said both players would receive MRIs on Sunday. He then provided his unsolicited take on the NFLs four-game preseason.Maybe its more games than we need, he said. Fewer preseason games and bigger rosters -- thats good for everybody.Harbaugh said the leagues coaches dont need the games to get their teams prepared for the regular season.We can find ways to get our guys ready to go and evaluated without the risk the game necessarily entails, he said.Asked how many preseason games he would like to see, Harbaugh said: If I had my druthers, Id go none. That would be my thing.Underscoring the notion that results in the preseason mean nothing, Lions running back Ameer Abdullah said, Ill start caring about winning when they keep score.The game did have some positives for Baltimore, most notably Flaccos return from knee surgery.He took the Ravens (3-0) to a field goal in their opening possession and played in one more series, ending his performance by misfiring on a fourth-down pass from the Detroit 43.Suggs, meanwhile, participated in his first game since tearing his Achilles tendon in the season opener last year. He made two tackles.The Ravens signed Watson as a free agent in March, hoping he would become one of Flaccos prime options this season. That plan ended when the 35-year-old appeared to trip while running a pattern and slumped to the turf.Beset by injuries while going 5-11 last season, the Ravens hoped this season would be different. But their lengthy injury list includes three tight ends: Watson, Dennis Pitta and Maxx Williams. In addition, Nick Boyle will miss the first 10 weeks for violating the leagues drug policy.With Watson out, Flacco turned his attention toward wide receiver Mike Wallace, signed as a free agent during the offseason. Wallace was targeted six times, catching three for 37 yards.Matthew Stafford played the first half for Detroit (1-2), completing 14 of 23 passes for 95 yards. He threw an interception and did not produce a touchdown.We couldnt make plays down the field when we had the chances, then when we made plays, we hurt ourselves with penalties, Stafford said.QUOTABLELions: Abdullah on the offense: A lot of this stuff was self-inflicted. Its not like they were coming in and imposing their will. There were a lot of penalties (nine) and thats what killed us.Ravens: Flacco on his performance: I was a little quick on a couple of things, but it felt great to be back out there.ROOKIE WATCHLions: Devon Bell misfired badly on a 42-yard field-goal try, but rebounded to hit one from 33 yards. Veteran Matt Prater, on the other hand, kicked a 60-yarder to end the first half.Ravens: Top draft pick Ronnie Stanley remains a fixture at left tackle. He started next to fellow rookie Alex Lewis, who played left guard for the injured John Urschel (contusion).POSITION BATTLELions: Undrafted rookie TE Cole Wick had mixed results in his effort to impress at a position beset by injuries. He had two catches for 20 yards, but was called for holding on a touchdown run.Ravens: With Dixon out, Terrance West appears poised to be the backup behind Justin Forsett. He gained 43 yards rushing compared to 15 for Javorius Allen.WELCOME BACKStandout defensive end Haloti Ngata faced the Ravens for the first time since being traded from Baltimore to Detroit last season.

But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. Yorkshire have gambled on the anticipated dwindling of Gary Ballances Test career, at least in the short term, by appointing him captain in all three formats.Ballances appointment represents the first major decision by Yorkshires new head coach, Andrew Gale, and ends weeks of conjecture about whether Ballances leadership role can remain undisrupted by further England calls.Alex Lees, who was hailed as Yorkshires youngest official captain since Lord Hawke, one of the countys most iconic figures, when he took charge of the limited-overs formats in 2016, has relinquished the role after only one season.Ballance, at 27, still retains the drive to add to his 21 Tests, but he has been omitted from Englands line-up throughout the India series, so much out of contention that it is questionable whether there has been any purpose in him remaining on tour.When Andrew Gale called me, it was impossible to turn down. Being captain is something that I enjoy doing and hopefully I will do a good job for Yorkshire and follow on from the good work that Galey has done over the years.Im experienced now, I have played a bit of cricket over the years, so I have seen how different captains work. I think that I am a calm person and like to think that I have a decent cricket brain. Im not a massive speaker, but I will be looking to lead by example on the field and get the lads to follow me.It must be challenging nevertheless to accept a job with total conviction when deep down you are hoping that you might bat so well you will make yourself redundant again in no time.Gale is not blind to the risks but he made no secret of his preference for a captain to cover all formats when he was unveiled as 1st XI coach - indeed, he was not best pleased when his own captaincy career finished in the Championship only - and Ballance was his preferred option from the outset if it was felt that England calls would be limited.Although Englands middle-order remains far from settled, the emergence of Haseeb Hameed and Keaton Jennings does give England more options at the top of the order, with the possibility that Jennings might fill a role at No. 3, and with the Champions Trophy looming in June there is no Test cricket in the first half of the 2017 summer.Although, to the outsider, he might nnot immediately give off the presence of a leader, Ballance commands great respect in the dressing room with younger players naturally gravitating to him for advice.ddddddddddddGale said: I wanted to take my time when deciding who to appoint as new Club Captain and Gary is the right man to take the team forward. I am a firm believer in continuity and I am pleased that Gary will captain Yorkshire across all three formats.Gary is respected on and off the field, has a good cricket brain and knows the direction that we would like to take the team in. He has led from the front for many years with the bat and his experience speaks for itself.Last season, I missed a game against Nottinghamshire at Scarborough with a back injury and Gary stepped in as captain. He showed great qualities as a leader and I am excited about how he will lead the side in the future.Martyn Moxon, Yorkshires director cricket, has contented himself with an advisory role as Gale, retired for all of a month, made the captaincy call, but Moxon was quick to praise the attributes of Yorkshires new leader.Gary has captained a little bit in the past and has done a really good job, Moxon said. He has got the respect of the players and is a very popular member of the dressing room. He is a hugely experienced cricketer now having played international cricket. Tactically he is astute, so he will be very good at that side as well as managing the lads.For Lees, the emphasis changes to making top-order runs and reviving his reputation as one of the most promising top-order batsmen in the country. Captaincy seemed to have come too early for him, although he did rally Yorkshire in mid-season in the NatWest Blast to the extent that, against expectations, they reached Finals Day.Galey feels, and I agree, that one captain is the way to go, Moxon said. It is an opportunity for Alex to concentrate on his batting and make sure that he is the best batsman that he can be. That is important for his development and for the team if he is stacking the runs up.We felt that it was only right that he didnt have any distractions with that in mind and he is very comfortable with that.
