Why Aren’t We Talking About Orlando Brown Now That He’s Doing Better?
Curiously, the redemption arc for the “That’s So Raven” star hasn’t received nearly as much media attention as his troubled past behavior. According to the Houston Chronicle , Brown in November will graduate from Rise Discipleship, a six-month in-patient recovery program in Abilene, Texas, with a mission to help men overcome addiction, homelessness and other hardships. “I can tell you that I’m OK. I’m alive,” Brown reportedly said in a recent interview. Brown said he learned about the Rise, which provides housing, food and other basic needs for its residents, through his then-fiancée and now wife, Danielle Brown, according to BCK .

Jackson shows MVP form to help Ravens beat Washington 31-17
– A few big plays went a long way for the Baltimore Ravens, who took a small step toward regaining the form they displayed last year as the highest-scoring team in the league. Lamar Jackson ran for a 50-yard touchdown and threw for two scores in a bounce-back performance by the reigning NFL MVP and the Ravens, who took control early against Washington in a 31-17 victory Sunday. Washington (1-3) had more first downs, owned an edge in time of possession and had only 7 fewer yards than Baltimore. The game was tough to watch for Washington coach Ron Rivera, and not just because of the score. Weakened by treatment he received during the week for cancer, Rivera occasionally took a break by sitting on the bench.
