The Ravens made it official, ruling out rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and offensive tackle Eugene Monroe for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Jernigan has a meniscus injury and did not practice all week. Monroe had arthroscopic knee surgery and could be sidelined for at least a few games. Meanwhile, veteran defensive end Chris Canty is questionable after not practicing all week due to knee and calf injuries. He's regarded as a game-time decision and the Ravens could start DeAngelo Tyson in his place.

Ravens starting defensive tackle Larry Webster spent four hours yesterday before NFL officials in New York appealing his recent suspension for violation of the league's substance and alcohol abuse policy. Webster's lawyer, Michael Baird, said the proceedings went well and he expected a decision from the league within the next few weeks. Webster,31, tested positive from a urine sample administered by the league on Feb. 23. The league notified him 30 days later that he was suspended because of suspected cocaine use. Baird has adamantly denied that his client used cocaine and was expected to introduce into evidence yesterday a toxicology report from Associated Pathologists Laboratories in Las Vegas that showed Webster tested negative for amphetamines, opiates, phencyclidine (PCP)

Football practices at Cypress Creek High in Texas can be extraordinary, from two a days in the heat and humidity of Houston being punctuated by 30 50-yard sprints to some memorable mano a mano battles on the line of scrimmage in the late 1980s. One of the NFL's best and most overlooked personal rivalries will be renewed Sunday, when Sam Adams, the Ravens' Pro Bowl defensive tackle, goes against Denver Broncos right guard Dan Neil for about the 135th time. Adams came to Baltimore from Seattle, where he played Neil twice a year.

When the Ravens go shopping for a defensive tackle in the high-rent district of Saturday's NFL draft, they will find all shapes and sizes. But they aren't likely to find a body big enough to completely close the hole left by the departure of 350-pound nose tackle Maake Kemoeatu. That is because this year's class of defensive tackles brings more emphasis on athletic 300-pound physiques than on monster trucks. "There are not a lot of monster-size guys," said draft analyst Russ Lande. "It's a very good year to get a solid defensive tackle who could start for 10 years.

CARLISLE, Pa. - Daryl Gardener said he checked his excess baggage at the entrance to Biddle Field before he walked through the gates Monday morning for his first practice with the Washington Redskins. Coach Steve Spurrier, when asked about the baggage Gardener brought with him from Miami, gave an innocent look and asked, "What baggage?" And so it went, with Gardener and his new teammates claiming that Monday was a fresh start for the Pro Bowl-level defensive tackle who wore out his welcome after six years in Miami and was released two weeks ago by the Dolphins.

MOBILE, ALA - Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman is one of the most imposing prospects at the Senior Bowl. Hageman, 6 feet 6 and 318 pounds, is a converted tight end and former basketball player who's projected as a first round draft pick. The All-Big Ten Conference selection has steamrolled blockers, rarely meeting his match except when he was pancaked a few times by Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin . Hageman ran the 40-yard dash between 4.8 and 4.9 seconds, bench presses 475 pounds and is flexible enough to operate in 3-4 or 4-3 schemes.

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Maryland freshman Will Likely said last week that he could feel a return for a touchdown coming. But he knew he was running out of chances, and the Terps were seemingly running out of time. "I was getting antsy, 'cause I'm trying to make a play," Likely recalled Saturday. "My coaches told me, 'Just let the plays come to you,' and that's what I did. " After a 37-yard punt return in the second quarter, Likely had a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown to help jump-start Maryland in its 27-24 overtime victory against Virginia Tech.

At times during training camp at McDaniel College in Westminster, the Ravens' first defense has featured Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata at defensive tackle. And Justin Bannan and Dwan Edwards. And Brandon McKinney and Kelly Talavou. The ever-changing personnel is a hallmark of the Ravens' wildly unpredictable defense. But perhaps more pointedly, it's a testament to the kind of depth the unit enjoys when it comes to plugging the interior of the defensive line. Gregg and Ngata are the expected starters, but Bannan made 15 regular-season and three playoff starts alongside Ngata last year when Gregg and Edwards were lost for the season because of injuries.

Demetrius Johnson's dual skill set showed last week when he caught a 35-yard touchdown pass and also returned an interception 78 yards for a touchdown in Annapolis Area Christian's 42-8 win over Friends. The senior is rated a 4-star wide receiver by Rivals.com, which also ranks him the No. 3 overall senior recruit in Maryland and the No. 24 senior recruit in the nation at wide receiver. But Johnson, at 6 feet 2 and 210 pounds, is projected by most to play safety in college and is fielding offers from Maryland, Syracuse, Hawaii, North Carolina State, Marshall and Old Dominion.
