Thumbs up: Michael McCrary for his bull's rush against Jonathan Ogden during drills. McCrary pushed the Pro Bowler back several yards, something that's very rare. Thumbs down: Defensive back Pete Destefano was late coming in for a play in a goal-line situation, then got flattened a few plays later by a tight end. Trainer's room: Defensive backs Gary Baxter (hamstring) and James Trapp (shoulder) did not practice. Quotable: "It was a really good depiction of what goes on in training camp.

Harry Swayne's calling has always been the same: lead others to daylight. He did it as a hole-carving offensive tackle for the Ravens' Super Bowl champions in the 2000 season. He does it now as team chaplain for the Chicago Bears. Once, the playbook was his Bible. Now, it's the other way around. For five years, Swayne, 42, has counseled Bears players and coaches on personal matters. He tackles marital concerns and anger management issues and sometimes offers financial advice.

Thumbs up: Running back Terry Allen. He made Ravens fans forget about Jamal Lewis for a night, rushing for a season-best 133 yards and breaking three runs of 16 yards or more. Thumbs down: Long snapper Dale Hellestrae. In his first game with the Ravens, the 17-year veteran played like a rookie. He had at least three poor snaps, one of which nearly led to a Vikings touchdown. Stat of game: 0. Turnovers by the Ravens. The team is 8-1 when quarterback Elvis Grbac throws fewer than two interceptions.

Ravens starting cornerbacks Chris McAlister and Duane Starks were both listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Chicago Bears, but both said they expected to play. McAlister, who has not missed a game in his two seasons with the Ravens, practiced lightly yesterday, trying to keep from running on his sprained ankle. "I'm playing," McAlister said. "I'm just resting it up right now. It's nothing serious. They just told me to sit out and not worry about stressing on it right now."

The Ravens have begun preliminary discussions with the agents for quarterback Jeff Blake, cornerback Chris McAlister and guard Edwin Mulitalo, but they do not anticipate having any of the players signed within the next couple of weeks. All three become free agents March 1, though the Ravens would likely make McAlister a franchise player before that date, if a deal is not reached, to keep him off the market. The team will likely offer a multi-year contract to Mulitalo and an incentive-laded, multi-year deal to Blake.

With one sack to show for the past three games, the Ravens' pass rush has become a rumor. The Ravens never got to Jon Kitna in Cincinnati last week. Two Sundays ago, they got to Tennessee's Steve McNair once. When they were in Miami, Ray Lucas had carte blanche. The prolonged absence of Ray Lewis, the best defensive player in the NFL, and veteran pass-rusher Michael McCrary has affected the Ravens' ability to pressure the quarterback, but coach Brian Billick's spin on the issue goes deeper than that, into the secondary.

After his first contact practice since injuring his left shoulder, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis sounded skeptical that he would play in Sunday's game at Miami. "If I had to go today, probably not," Lewis said. "Sunday might be something else." Lewis partially dislocated his left shoulder on Oct. 6, and the Ravens (4-5) have lost three times in his five-game absence. The five-time Pro Bowl performer was again listed as doubtful on the injury report, which means he has a 25 percent chance of playing.

Ravens strong safety Will Demps worked with the first team during part of yesterday's practice, further proof that the undrafted rookie will make his NFL debut on Monday night against the Denver Broncos. Neither he nor the coaching staff, however, would confirm that Demps will start in place of Anthony Mitchell, "I don't take anything from it," Demps said of practicing with the starters. "I think it was just to get back into the rotation." Demps has recovered from a dislocated elbow he suffered in the final preseason game.

Anthony Mitchell has kept an even keel through a few up and down weeks. The third-year pro out of Tuskegee came into camp as the starter at strong safety, but rookie free agent Will Demps won the position. When Demps went out with an elbow injury, Mitchell got his first NFL start Sunday at Carolina. His unit allowed just one touchdown, but he was the player victimized on a 20-yard touchdown pass to Panthers tight end Wesley Walls. "I graded myself D, D-minus, because I was the one who should have made the play on the touchdown," Mitchell said.

After reviewing Todd Heap's first game as the Ravens' No. 1 tight end, coach Brian Billick compared his importance to the team to that of running back Jamal Lewis. "[Heap] is a guy that we have to stay involved in the offense, as does Jamal," Billick said. "Jamal has to have more than 19 carries, and Todd needs to have at minimum five catches a game." Heap hit his minimum in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers, but he netted just 20 yards. Despite the low yardage total, Billick raved about Heap's performance.
