Ravens fullback Alan Ricard has now become part of the solution instead of the problem. After being inactive for the first two games of the 2005 season, Ricard is expected to be in the starting lineup Sunday against the New York Jets. If he's not starting, he will at least play, and he might be a stimulus for a running game that is averaging a mere 45.5 yards, ranked last in the NFL. He's not the missing ingredient that will help transform the Ravens into the league's top running team, but anything helps.

Once a major player in a dominant rushing attack, fullback Alan Ricard is no longer in the Ravens' plans. Ricard is expected to be released before the Ravens report to training camp July 28 because of his declining health and the team's new direction on offense, a league source said yesterday. The Ravens had planned on a different look for the offense, one that will rely more on H-back Daniel Wilcox and the versatility of fullback Justin Green, who impressed team officials during his rookie season.

Every once in a while, when Ravens fullback Alan Ricard has a free moment during the offseason, he will take a drive past his former place of employment in Houston, then thank heavens he is playing professional football. You might not consider being a car salesman at a Ford dealership the world's worst job, yet it was for Ricard, who left the profession in 1999 after a month's stint. "That just wasn't me," said the relatively low-key Ricard. Ricard was living with his sister in Houston after being cut by the Dallas Cowboys during training camp that year.

The Ravens' return to a smash-mouth running attack might have hit a snag. Fullback Alan Ricard reinjured his right calf in Thursday's practice and is considered questionable for tomorrow's game against the New York Jets. The Ravens wanted to revert to a run-heavy philosophy, which meant going back to their old I-formation look. Ricard, who had been inactive the first two games, would have an integral role in that game plan as Jamal Lewis' lead blocker. "Unless he can [fully] go, he will not play," Billick said.

Ravens fullback Alan Ricard was deactivated for Sunday night's loss to the Indianapolis Colts, a surprising move that had nothing to do with his health. An explanation came yesterday when Ovie Mughelli was listed as a starter over Ricard in the team's revised depth chart. Ricard had been a starter the past three seasons and had not been inactive for a game for non-injury reasons since 2001. Last season, Ricard helped Jamal Lewis rush for 130 yards in a game against the Colts. Asked if the move surprised him, Ricard said, "It did. Just the competitiveness in me, I want to play.

NEW ORLEANS - After living on the edge for the majority of a charmed season, Navy's football team fell off the cliff last night. Uninspired, error-ridden and overmatched in raw talent, the Midshipmen absorbed their worst beating of 2004, falling to underdog Tulane, 42-10, before an announced crowd of 21,484 at the Louisiana Superdome. Navy (7-2) could never establish its game against a Green Wave team that has scored 185 points in its past four meetings against the Mids in New Orleans and was coming off a 24-3 loss to Houston last week.

NEW ORLEANS - Navy couldn't ground Tulane's air attack last night and absorbed its worst beating of the 2004 season. Quarterback Lester Ricard completed 18 of 19 passes for 323 yards and four touchdowns, shredding Navy's 10th-ranked pass defense and leading the underdog Green Wave to a surprisingly easy 42-10 victory at the Louisiana Superdome. By far, it was the lowest ebb of the fall for the Midshipmen (7-2), whose only previous loss was to a vastly superior Notre Dame team three weeks earlier.

Tulane loves to travel by air, so Navy's assignment tonight is to disrupt its flight plans. "They're going to test us early," said veteran Midshipman corner Vaughn Kelley. "I wouldn't put that past them. I don't know what it is about New Orleans, all the scoring they've done against us here. We plan on trying to change that. It's a challenge to hold them down." Kelley and his mates in the defensive secondary will be on center stage when the rivals with contrasting approaches to offense clash tonight at the Superdome, starting at 7 p.m. Navy pits its third-ranked rushing offense, paced by quarterback Aaron Polanco and fullback Kyle Eckel, against the Green Wave's fast fleet of receivers, paced by NFL prospect Roydell Williams, in a game between teams that have typically produced a ton of points when they meet.

While most observers may not think backup fullback Ovie Mughelli is competing for a starting role, the second-year player believes otherwise. Mughelli played on special teams in six games last year but got just a handful of snaps from scrimmage, all in a blowout win over the Cleveland Browns. After spending much of the offseason working on speed, agility and dropping a few pounds, Mughelli is making a push to get more involved in the base offense. He finished last year with five special teams tackles.
