Although it looks as if Ravens coach Brian Billick has settled on Kipp Vickers at right guard and Sammy Williams at right tackle, a form of the right-side offensive rotation will likely continue. Previously, guard Bennie Anderson and tackle Erik Williams had been rotating with Vickers and Williams. But Erik Williams was inactive for Sunday's 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Anderson was in for just a handful of plays, leaving the vast majority of playing time to Vickers and Sammy Williams.

AFTER 60-SOMETHING PRACTICES, three preseason games, several HBO documentaries, 15 new, four-syllable Brian Billick words and enough injuries to apply for a Red Cross relief package, the Ravens' 2001 season has come down to this: If the team can develop a competent offensive line, it has a shot at winning a second consecutive Super Bowl title. That's it in a nutshell. The defense is dominating enough to keep the Ravens in most games and put them in the playoffs. They have enough talent at quarterback and receiver to take some of the load off the running game without Jamal Lewis.

CINCINNATI - With a little more than six minutes left in the Ravens' 21-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday, quarterback Elvis Grbac took the snap, immediately rolled to his right and tossed a hurried incompletion in the direction of Qadry Ismail. There was no five-step drop. No hanging in the pocket. Just an all-out bail by Grbac before his offensive linemen had a chance to get in their pass-protecting stances. For the Ravens, that instance was not unique. Grbac spent much of the second half scrambling to his right away from pressure and either throwing the ball away or trying to force a completion with only half the field to work with.

The familiarity will balance itself out. According to Ravens coach Brian Billick, neither his team nor the Minnesota Vikings should have an advantage in Monday night's game at PSINet Stadium. Billick was offensive coordinator in Minnesota from 1993 to 1998 under current Vikings coach Dennis Green. "My familiarity with them is countered by their familiarity with me," Billick said. "It's been a long time. You have different people there, different combinations of talent. I think the familiarity is probably negligible."

The Ravens are close to adding some veteran punch to their offensive line, nearing a deal with right tackle Erik Williams yesterday. Team officials deny reaching an agreement in principle with Williams, but a deal could be made final as early as today with the four-time Pro Bowl tackle. Williams, a fixture on the Dallas Cowboys' last three Super Bowl champion teams, will likely sign a one-year, $500,000 contract. The Ravens have been dealing with a hole on the right side of the line since Leon Searcy tore a tendon in his left arm four weeks ago. Searcy, a free agent from the Jacksonville Jaguars who signed last March, is expected to miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

In trying to rebound from a loss for the first time in close to 11 months, the Ravens find themselves short-handed. They have a season-high seven players on the injury report for Sunday's game in Denver, one of the hottest teams in the league. Tight end Todd Heap (ankle) is doubtful, while receiver Jermaine Lewis (leg), end Michael McCrary (knee), receiver Brandon Stokley (knee) and tackle Sammy Williams (knee) are all questionable. If Heap is unable to play, that will limit what the Ravens can do out of their two-tight-end set. "We're hoping he can come along," coach Brian Billick said.

DENVER - His pictures hang along the inside walls of Invesco Field at Mile High, right with other Broncos greats like quarterback John Elway, running back Terrell Davis and linebacker Bill Romanowski. Call it an appreciation of what Shannon Sharpe did for the Broncos in the past, though the franchise could not be too happy with what he did yesterday. Sharpe finished with five catches for 50 yards, including two crucial ones on the Ravens' game-winning touchdown drive in the team's 20-13 defeat of Denver.

Offense Quarterbacks (3) Starter: Elvis Grbac. Backups: Randall Cunningham, Chris Redman. Skinny: Grbac is beginning to show a comfort level, completing 57 percent of his passes despite lapses from pass protection and drops by receivers. The Ravens' plan is to have Redman continue his development by taking the second-most number of reps with the first-team offense in practice but turn to Cunningham first if Grbac goes down. Tallbacks (2) Starter: Terry Allen. Backup: Jason Brookins.

The Ravens welcomed one veteran right tackle and parted ways with another. The defending Super Bowl champions signed four-time Pro Bowl performer Erik Williams yesterday, leading to the expected release of 15-year veteran Harry Swayne. One of the cornerstones on the Dallas Cowboys' past three Super Bowl champion teams, Williams agreed to a one-year contract worth $500,000. The addition of Williams is the Ravens' third and best attempt to plug the void left by Leon Searcy, who is out until the sixth week of the regular season with a torn tendon in his left arm. Williams carries more punch than Swayne and more experience than Sammy Williams.
