Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has been fined $8,268 by the NFL for kicking Washington Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao, according to a league spokesman. The fine is for unnecessary roughness. Ngata wasn't penalized on the play. Ngata kicked Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just [upset]

How about this as a short-yardage package: The Ravens go with an unbalanced line to the left and insert tackle Willie Anderson on that side. They run a full-house backfield that includes three backs: fullbacks Haloti Ngata and Lorenzo Neal, and halfback Le'Ron McClain. McClain gets the ball moving to the left with Neal and Ngata as lead blockers. Wow. Look out, world. (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ravensinsider)

Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata can likely expect to hear from the league office in the near future. Ngata kicked Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. Ngata retaliated to stick up for his teammate after Lauvao stuck Franks a bit late. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just pissed that he was doing that and just nudged him," Ngata said.

1 Dominate Chargers offensive line. This is where the Ravens need to cause problems because San Diego could be without center Nick Hardwick (ankle) and right guard Louis Vasquez (knee). The Ravens' Haloti Ngata and Kelly Gregg are licking their chops. 2 Secondary has to get in sync. If running back LaDainian Tomlinson is sidelined, quarterback Philip Rivers will be flinging the ball all over the field. That means the Ravens need to correct their lapses from the season opener. 3 Keep spreading the ball around.

One of the popular phrases among reserves on the Ravens' vaunted defense is, "Don't be the weak link." Jameel McClain, a second-year linebacker, was the weak link one moment Monday night against the New York Jets and a defensive hero the next. McClain was badly out of position on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Mark Sanchez to Leon Washington with 5:50 left in the first half. On the sideline, middle linebacker Ray Lewis told McClain to get over the play quickly. Some five minutes later, McClain intercepted Sanchez's replacement, Kellen Clemens, and ran 16 yards untouched to the end zone for a touchdown.

The drought is over for rookie defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. Ngata's sack of Ben Roethlisberger on Pittsburgh's second series of the second quarter was the first of the season for the 12th overall pick in April's draft. Ngata, whose primary assignment was to rush to the outside and contain Roethlisberger, bull-rushed his blocker and pulled down Roethlisberger at the Steelers' 19, contributing to a three-and-out series for Pittsburgh. "It felt great," Ngata said of getting his first sack.

To truly understand how special Haloti Ngata is at stopping ball carriers, it's necessary to watch when the Ravens defensive tackle was once one himself. His teammates saw a video of Ngata playing for his high school rugby team, a collection of jaw-dropping highlights that makes everyone appreciate his rare combination of power and agility. One clip shows Ngata plowing his way upfield with the ball, carrying four players on his shoulders and back. In another one, he is weaving his way around opponents, acting as if he is Jim Brown.

Veteran left tackle Eugene Monroe and cornerback Jimmy Smith were the Ravens' only new absentees at practice Friday, while wide receiver Steve Smith was present at practice but had the day off. Meanwhile, five players who missed Thursday's practice were back in action: nose tackle Haloti Ngata, linebacker Terrell Suggs, wide receiver Jacoby Jones, running back Justin Forsett, and wide receiver Jeremy Butler. Butler was the only one who missed because of an injury, while the other four were given days off to rest.

Ravens rookie defensive lineman Brent Urban has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, coach John Harbaugh said Thursday. "We got bad news on Brent Urban," Harbaugh said. Urban will undergo surgery to repair the damage for the season-ending injury sustained while being blocked to the ground by offensive tackle Jah Reid on Wednesday. "It was a clean tear, which is positive," Harbaugh said. "He's been through this before. It was a one-on-one block and it was just a situation where one guy was blocking the other and the knee just buckled on him. " The injury was immediately regarded as serious Wednesday when Urban knocked over during a block by offensive tackle Jah Reid.

The Ravens contacted Haloti Ngata's representatives earlier this offseason to begin contract extension talks that the team hoped would allow the 30-year-old defensive lineman to finish his career in Baltimore. Those talks, aimed at reducing Ngata's team-high $16 million salary cap number in each of the final two years of his deal and extending his stay in the purple and black, didn't get very far. But as he's preparing for his ninth NFL season with the Ravens, Ngata said he'd like nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of his closest friend on the team, Terrell Suggs, and sign a contract extension to end his career in the same place it began.

Veteran Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and defensive linemen Chris Canty and Haloti Ngata lead a list of players absent from the practice field during organized team activities on Tuesday. All three veteran defensive players have missed the team's first three workouts, which are optional under the league's collective bargaining agreement. Suggs, Ngata, and Canty are the only three players who are not injured to not take part in any of the workouts this spring. Linebacker Daryl Smith, guard Marshall Yanda, and linebacker Elvis Dumervil were also not on the field for the second straight week.

Nose tackle Haloti Ngata was again the only Ravens player sidelined from practice Thursday, and he appears headed for another game-time decision Sunday. Ngata sat out the Ravens' 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears last Sunday because of a knee injury sustained the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ngata has not practiced in nearly two weeks. Tight end Dennis Pitta , who returned to practice Wednesday after a nearly four-month absence because of a discloated and fractured right hip, also practiced Thursday.

While there has been no indication that Haloti Ngata is dealing with a significant hip injury, the veteran nose tackle missed practice for a second straight day at the Under Armour Performance Center. He was one of only three players not participating in practice as the Ravens appear to be as healthy as they've been all season heading into Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers at M&T Bank Stadium. The other two players missing were nose tackle Terrence Cody , who appears in line to miss a third straight game with a sprained left knee, and linebacker Albert McClellan , who is dealing with a shoulder injury.

After Haloti Ngata heard he had been drafted by the Ravens in the first round Saturday, even a burly, 337-pound nose tackle couldn't hold back the tears. There were feelings of accomplishment. There were feelings of loss. "I was emotional because my parents weren't there," said Ngata, the 12th overall pick in the NFL draft. "I was thinking about them a lot. It was a bittersweet moment." His father, Solomone, died three years ago when the truck he was driving hit a patch of ice and slid off the road.

Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata returned to practice after missing the past few days to attend to a family issue. He wasn't at practice Sunday and Monday, excused for personal reasons. Starting defensive end Arthur Jones missed practice for the third day in a row as he deals with a personal medical issue, according to Harbaugh. Jones was at team headquarters Tuesday, but has been sidelined since the Ravens' 34-27 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. “Art had an issue, it's not football-related,” Harbaugh said.

 Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata remained away from the team to deal with what Harbaugh said Sunday was a personal matter. Ngata, who probably wouldn't have played in Thursday's preseason finale anyway, has been excused from practice the past two days. Fellow defensive lineman Arthur Jones and linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) also did not practice. McPhee has been sidelined since early last week and did not play in last Thursday's game against the Carolina Panthers. The other Ravens not practicing have been out indefinitely: Thompson (foot)
