In recording the first multi-sack game of his career, Ravens defensive end Tony Weaver provided himself with a little relief. Weaver had been close on a number of plays this season, but either the quarterback would deliver the pass right after the hit or find a way to break out of the pocket. But Weaver's drought ended Sunday in the Ravens' 34-26 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals when he brought down quarterback Jon Kitna twice in the second quarter. Weaver ended the first half with a 6-yard sack at the Bengals' 27 and recorded one for 8 yards on a third-and-14 about 11 minutes earlier.

Rating the QBs How the Ravens' quarterbacks stacked up in yesterday morning's team drills: 1. Chris Redman Engineered a 35-yard drive in a hurry-up drill against the first-team defense, which put the offense in range for a 42-yard field goal. Despite constant pressure, he threw a 13-yard pass to Randy Hymes and a 10-yarder to Ron Johnson. In another drill, he found Travis Taylor for an 18-yard gain. 2. Kyle Boller Remained relatively quiet with fewer reps. In what has become a daily occurrence, he connected on a deep pass, a 40-yard throw down the sideline to Hymes.

Help is on the way. The Ravens should get receiver Frank Sanders (dislocated toes) and cornerback Tom Knight (hamstring) back from injury this week. Both could play in Sunday's home opener against the Cleveland Browns, adding depth to two of the thinnest positions on the team. Neither played in Sunday's 34-15 season-opening loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sanders has been out since dislocating two toes on his right foot in the first preseason game. He returned to practice last week, but remained doubtful on the injury report.

TEMPE, Ariz. - There are no moral victories in football. If there were, the Arizona Cardinals would be chalking one up in the win column. Instead, they were forced to swallow a 13-7 loss to the Ravens. Jake Plummer threw for 266 yards and the Cardinals had 309 yards and 18 first downs against a defense that ranks first in the NFL with an average of 235.4 yards allowed. "I was watching their corners," Plummer said. "[Chris] McAlister was getting real confident. He was jumping a lot of routes, and we knew we could get him on a stutter-and-go, and we did."

Ravens run offense vs. Cardinals run defenseThe Ravens' running game has responded well in the past couple of weeks, and the offensive line has been able to knock people off the ball.

Ravens coach Brian Billick will announce Kyle Boller as his starting quarterback for the season opener in Pittsburgh at a news conference today, sources within the organization said. Coming off an outstanding performance in the preseason finale, Boller distanced himself from Chris Redman, going 7-for-9 for 99 yards and two touchdowns in a little more than a quarter's work. The first-round draft pick will become the fifth different starting quarterback in Billick's five seasons here (following Scott Mitchell, Tony Banks, Elvis Grbac and Redman)

The Kyle Boller era dawns today, loaded with promise yet laced with uncertainty. The Ravens' franchise quarterback makes his first NFL start in the season opener at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field, four months after being taken with the 19th pick in the draft. The future of the team's offense rests firmly on Boller's strong arm. This year's hopes for a playoff berth weigh heavily on his inexperienced shoulders. And gaining an immediate upper hand on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North depends mightily on the erratic poise of a 22-year-old.

Bolling leads the NFL in sacks this preseason (five), Parker gives a steady, veteran presence and Salave'a needs to prove he's healthy. Veteran Receiver Marcus Robinson. The former Pro Bowl performer has one catch for 13 yards this preseason. To get him on track, the Ravens might give him more opportunities to make big plays tonight.

Rating the QBs How the Ravens' quarterbacks stacked up in yesterday's final day of training camp: 1. Kyle Boller For the second straight day, he took most of the snaps with the first team. His best string of passes came in the seven-on-seven drills, when he hit receiver Travis Taylor on a pair of 25-yard completions. The rookie fell into a habit of throwing off his back foot a few times, which led to some inaccuracy. 2. Chris Redman Unlike the first two weeks of camp, Redman's time with the starters was limited.
