John Harbaugh flashed a wide grin last week when a reporter asked the Ravens' coach about Terrence Cody nearly "pancaking" a quarterback during passing camp. "I'm not going to go there," Harbaugh said, taking a lighthearted poke at his 360-pound rookie nose tackle. "I think there's a lot of opportunity with the pancake comment, but we'll stay away from that." The eating habits of "Mount" Cody have become a hot topic ever since the Ravens drafted him with their second pick of the second round in this year's draft.

For quarterback Kyle Boller and tight end Darnell Dinkins, how they practiced during the week did not carry over into the game. And that was a good thing for the Ravens. Boller and Dinkins could never execute in practice a play they used in yesterday's 30-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys at M&T Bank Stadium. In the game, however, Dinkins found a seam in the Cowboys' zone and Boller zipped in a pass rather than lob it up (as they had practiced) for a 17-yard touchdown, a 7-3 Ravens lead in the third quarter and a defining moment in the game.

Ray Lewis, starting linebacker: : The general feeling is that Lewis needs to test the free-agent waters to see how much the rest of the NFL wants him. But he might not like the results. Few teams are going to dole out a big contract to a 33-year-old linebacker. The Ravens, who covet his leadership and legacy, are probably going to put the best offer on the table. Chances of returning: 70 percent. Jason Brown, starting center: : It's believed there is a gap in negotiations between Brown and the Ravens (he wants to be paid as a guard, and the team is offering him a contract in line with centers)

Dave Zastudil will be out three to four weeks, leaving the Ravens in search of a temporary punter who could suit up in time for Sunday's game. Backup quarterback Kordell Stewart handled the duty for nearly three quarters when Zastudil separated his left shoulder after he was blocked downfield on a punt against the New York Jets, but the Ravens have no desire to make what was an emergency plan permanent. Special teams coordinator Gary Zauner will have tryouts tomorrow, and the Ravens may have someone signed by the evening.

SAN DIEGO - In the wake of the Ravens losing James Harris to Jacksonville, there is speculation that Phil Savage may become the Ravens' director of football operations. Harris, the team's pro personnel director, was hired as the Jaguars' vice president of player personnel Thursday after Savage, Jacksonville's first choice, broke off negotiations. Savage, the Ravens' director of college scouting, could be promoted to second in command in the front office next week and would be in charge of overseeing both the college and pro personnel departments, a league source said.
