Safety Chris Hope (shoulder) missed practice Thursday and his availability for Sunday's game is in serious doubt. His shoulder popped out last week against the Jaguars, Coach Mike Munchak said. “He took a good shot on it, it popped in and out, and when that happens it's just a matter of getting it strong again so it won't happen again,” Munchak said. “It's a confidence thing, too.” Hope has 49 straight starts. Jordan Babineaux would start in Hope's place.

LOS ANGELES -- Damian Williams, convicted of throwing a brick that struck trucker Reginald O. Denny in the head during the opening hours of the Los Angeles riots last year, was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in jail -- the maximum term for that attack and for assaults on four other people.With credit for time served, Williams could be released in less than four years.Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk, who called Williams' crimes "exceptionally violent," said that although Williams had apologized to his victims, "his statement of remorse does not ring true."

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Damian Williams knew how to keep the tips flowing when he tended bar in Washington. Quick and friendly service was important. Added flourishes, like a well-timed twirl of the bottle, helped. But most important was the golden rule of bartending: Pour unto others as you would have them pour unto you. Now working three states south, Williams can still flash a smile and serve up a speedy gin and tonic, but he has little opportunity to look cool in the process, and no control at all over the alcoholic content of the drinks he mixes.

The bottom line is this: What did it look like?A group of thugs drags a man from his truck, kicks, punches and pummels him severely. As a coup de grace, one hurls a brick into the man's head at point-blank range and dances a jig of glee afterward. The grisly affair is caught on video tape.It looks like attempted murder to me. It probably looks the same to most other folks, unless they happened to be among the 12 members of the jury that acquitted defendant Damian Williams of attempted murder in the assault on Reginald Denny.

Ravens offensive guard Ben Grubbs, who was doubtful with a toe injury, is out for today's game against the Tennessee Titans. Andre Gurode is expected to start in his place. Grubbs had played in every game during his carer (65), which was the Ravens' fourth longest active streak. Wide receiver Tandon Doss, cornerbacks Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown and Chris Carr, nose tackle Brandon McKinney and outside linebacker Sergio Kindle are also inactive for the Ravens. That means cornerback Danny Gorrer, who was signed from the practice squad yesterday, is active.

Wide receiver Lee Evans, who didn't have a catch in his Ravens debut Sunday, missed Wednesday's practice as he continues to be hobbled by a sore left ankle. Evans wore a protective boot on his left foot in the week leading up to the Ravens' preseason finale but had it removed in the days before the season opener against the Steelers. Evans did practice all last week. Starting left guard Ben Grubbs (toe) also didn't participate in practice. For the Titans, safety Chris Hope (shoulder)

DURING the seventh day of deliberations in the case of the two men accused of beating truck driver Reginald Denny during last year's Los Angeles riots, one of the regular jurors was replaced by an alternate. The jurors had to renew deliberations from the beginning, because the alternate was not in on the original deliberations.The juror, an elderly woman known only as Juror 373, was dismissed for "failing to deliberate as the law defines it," the elegant legalese the judge in the case used.
