Unable to strike a deal with Jamal Lewis over the weekend, the Ravens have expanded their free-agent running back search. The Ravens contacted the agents for Corey Dillon and Chris Brown yesterday, although they are continuing to negotiate with Lewis. It is still believed that the Ravens' preference is to re-sign Lewis, but they don't want to be left without an experienced running back in what has become a dwindling free-agent market. "We continue to have conversations with Mitch [Frankel]

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland's Heisman Trophy candidate, LaMont Jordan, is in trouble with the books again. Jordan is being held out of spring practice to concentrate on his classwork, a decision by coach Ron Vanderlinden that comes six months after the nation's fifth-leading rusher last season battled the books down to the wire to remain eligible for the 1999 season. "With LaMont out for the spring, that puts a big scare in everybody," said junior wide receiver Guilian Gary, who led the team in receptions last season with 24. "It means we have to be able to throw the ball and we have to be able to do other things because if LaMont doesn't come back, what happens?

COLLEGE PARK - The impressiveness of Maryland's 37-7 win over Wake Forest, forged yesterday afternoon at Byrd Stadium, is open to interpretation. Does it call for praise, because the Terrapins (3-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) gained 500 yards on offense and had two backs hover around the 100-yard mark; because the defense forced four turnovers and pitched a shutout into the 54th minute? Or does it call for yawns? The only thing tougher to imagine than one of last year's bowl teams being as bad as Wake Forest (0-7, 0-6)

COLLEGE PARK - Fanatical, workaholic football coaches just can't figure out LaMont Jordan. They shake their heads in dismay and sometimes in disgust over how Maryland's Heisman Trophy candidate can break all the so-called tried and trusted workout and conditioning rules and still go out on Saturdays and run over, around and through would-be tacklers. Terps running backs coach Mike Locksley has even called Jordan "something of a freak" as a football player. "He can lay off lifting [weights]

Maryland may have another sort of injury problem. Leading playmaker Stefon Diggs, a wide receiver and kick returner, was wearing a walking boot on Tuesday. The injury is not believed to be serious, but the team won't release information about the player's status for Saturday's game at Clemson until Thursday's injury report. Diggs caught both of the Terps' touchdown passes in last week's loss to Georgia Tech. For the season, he's caught 43 passes for 721 yards and 6 touchdowns, and he also returned a kickoff for a touchdown.
