Ravens star running back Jamal Lewis was reinstated by the NFL yesterday after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance and alcohol abuse policy. Lewis, who is on injured reserve after blowing out his left knee this summer, returned to the Ravens' Owings Mills practice facility to resume his rehabilitation. During his suspension, the team could not have any contact with Lewis but kept track of his recovery through his agent, Mitch Frankel. The Ravens' first-round draft pick in 2000 who gained 1,364 yards last season, Lewis wants to put the incident in the past.

The unanimity was what grabbed Dick Vermeil. Three different players from the Ravens' Super Bowl team passed through Kansas City in free agency last spring and each one unfailingly praised Priest Holmes. Vermeil, the new coach of the Chiefs, didn't have to ask twice. He targeted the Ravens' reserve running back over another popular free agent, Charlie Garner, gave him a five-year, $7.548 million contract and watched Holmes become the biggest free-agent steal of the year. In a season that came out of nowhere, Holmes leads the NFL in rushing with 1,146 yards and in total yards from scrimmage with 1,635.

FORMER SUPER BOWL running back Bam Morris was caught with six pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his Mercedes Benz and then quadrupled his income by signing a contract to play football with the Baltimore Ravens.What I see here is another sports hero, who might have rotted in a Texas jail if he'd been anybody else, walk away from a drug arrest with a $600,000 raise.Fortunately, all my son, Joe, sees is the Ravens taking castoffs from his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers, reinforcing his bragging rights at school.

Keep Anderson hereIf Brady Anderson signs with another team, we will be losing one of the players who defines the Orioles. It is inevitable that the Orioles succumb to the faceless, hired-gun, big-money '90s baseball world to some degree, but to let Anderson go is to let go of what every major-league baseball team wants -- a personality that fans will take interest in long enough to see past all the filler that baseball has become.Peter Angelos has the opportunity to let Baltimore look past Jon Miller and Davey Johnson.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Ravens' toughest opposition today at Ericsson Stadium won't be in the Carolina Panthers' uniforms, but in the Ravens' helmets.The Ravens (4-10) are 0-7 away from home and the franchise has dropped 11 straight road games, dating to the Cleveland Browns' 29-26 overtime win against the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 29, 1995. The Panthers (10-4) are 6-0 at their new stadium this season.The Ravens say it's time to stop playing head games."Over the years they keep telling you it's hard to go into someone else's home and beat them because of the fans and the other team has the knowledge about the field," Ravens wide receiver Michael Jackson said.

It became official yesterday: Bam Morris is the feature back in the Ravens' one-back offensive set.Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda made the announcement yesterday after the team's first practice of the week in preparation for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Morris, 24, will replace Earnest Byner, 34, who rushed for 559 yards on 141 attempts after starting the team's first nine games."We couldn't just throw him in there, especially with the no-huddle, because there was a lot of things to learn," said Marchibroda, who ran some of the two-back set formation, teaming Morris with 6-foot-2, 240-pound fullback Carwell Gardner.

During the past four months, former Ravens running back Bam Morris has gotten up each day to work out as many as three times a day. And then he waits for a phone call from one of 30 National Football League teams inviting him to training camp.Thus far, the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots have shown lukewarm interest, but there are no imminent deals. Instead, Morris keeps training, running and lifting weights. And waiting, and waiting and waiting"In my heart, in my mind, there has never been a question about me still being able to play in this league," said Morris, 26, appearing with his new agent, Terry Lavenstein, a prominent Baltimore attorney, in Lavenstein's downtown office.

As he leaned on his crutches, wincing from the throbbing pain in his left ankle, Ravens running back Jay Graham could barely manage a smile, even while reflecting on a day most rookies only dream about.Talk about mixed emotions. The night before yesterday's 10-10 overtime affair with the Philadelphia Eagles, Graham found out he would be starting in place of injured Bam Morris (toe).Graham followed his initial exhilaration with the kind of numbers the Ravens envisioned when they drafted him in the third round out of Tennessee.

The kick sailed wide right, resulting in a 10-10 tie with the Eagles before 63,546 at Memorial Stadium.It was the first NFL tie since the Browns and Kansas City Chiefs tied, 10-10, on Nov. 19, 1989, in Cleveland.The outcome virtually ended any playoff hopes for the Ravens (4-6-1)

Just when it appeared the Ravens' running game was the least of their problems, an inconsistent rushing attack has crept back onto their list of concerns.Take Sunday's 28-25 overtime loss to Jacksonville. The Ravens managed a respectable 104 yards on the ground, but for the second straight week, their offensive line could not get feature back Bam Morris (22 carries, 60 yards) untracked.Twice in the first half, the Ravens had first downs inside the Jacksonville 15-yard line, but had to settle for Matt Stover field goals after stalling on the ground.

Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda has spent the past two weeks looking over his trouble list. Well, let's see.He signed a new running back and his "complete" tight end. But the team still needs a deep threat at wide receiver, bigger defensive tackles, more experience at linebacker, aggressive play in the secondary, consistency at quarterback.It's no wonder the Ravens are 1-2. A quick, temporary fix may come today at Memorial Stadium in the form of the 0-4 New Orleans Saints, but Marchibroda has more problems than he expected to have when he took the job Feb. 15."

Maybe Ravens left offensive guard Leo Goeas summed it up %% best when he indicted the entire team for its numerous short-yardage failures in Sunday's 19-16 overtime loss to the New York Jets. %%%% "The Jets didn't do anything we didn't expect," said Goeas. "It was a matter of us not executing. The blame is all-inclusive as far as players, coaches, officials, everybody."The Ravens compiled a total of 447 yards of total offense, including 130 yards rushing by Bam Morris and 288 passing from quarterback Vinny Testaverde, but when it came to crunch as well as crush time, the team wasn't successful, losing its fourth out of the past five games.
