With kicker Billy Cundiff battling a calf injury, the Ravens announced Wednesday that they have signed veteran kicker Shayne Graham. To make room for Graham -- and to keep Cundiff on the active roster -- the team placed linebacker Chavis Williams on injured reserve with a foot injury. Cundiff injured his calf leading up to the team's Week 14 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He has made just two of five kicks in the past three games. And Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh hinted that the team might have to make a move if Cundiff couldn't kick in practice this week.

Like any player in his position, Billy Cundiff won't say he can make every kick. But the Ravens kicker willingly accepts the chance to do so. "Yeah, I think you have to," Cundiff said Wednesday about the desire to kick a game-winning field goal. "If you don't have the attitude that you want to make the game-winning kick, then you're probably in the wrong business. " Cundiff's eagerness is a welcome sign to the Ravens, who were beginning to wonder whether last year's AFC representative in the Pro Bowl would be able to overcome a nagging left calf injury.

Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, and if he is able to participate the rest of the week, it seems likely that he will reassume the team's primary placekicking duties Sunday. But if Shayne Graham suits up for a second straight game, he claims the Cincinnati Bengals will be just another team to him. Graham spent seven seasons with the Bengals before he and the team parted ways after the 2009 season. In a 24-14 playoff loss to the New York Jets that season -- his last game in Cincinnati -- Graham missed a pair of field goals.

Confidence in the health and form of Billy Cundiff, the Ravens announced today that they have released veteran kicker Shayne Graham. Graham, who was signed by the Ravens on Dec. 21 with Cundiff dealing with a left calf injury, was 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts in a 20-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns in Week 15, converting from 48 and 43 yards out along with making both of his extra points. However, the Ravens opted to go with Cundiff in Sunday's regular-season closing 24-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Pro Bowl selection last year made his one field-goal attempt from 42 yards.

The Ravens are close to striking a one-year deal with kicker Shayne Graham, according to a league source, but the sides surprisingly failed to finalize the agreement as of Tuesday night. This long-awaited move is still expected to occur and would give the Ravens their most established kicker since Matt Stover. Graham, 32, the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history who struggled in last season's playoffs, would then compete against Billy Cundiff to be the Ravens' kicker this season, although Graham's experience likely gives him the edge.

Shayne Graham signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Ravens on Thursday, knowing he has to beat Billy Cundiff to win the kicking job. Some contend Graham's biggest battle is within himself. The longtime Cincinnati Bengals kicker put a dent in his distinguished career when he failed to convert two short field goals in last season's 24-14 playoff loss to the New York Jets — critical misses that Bengals coach Marvin Lewis suggests haunts Graham as "demons." Asked about those kicks, Graham said he doesn't feel as if he has to anything to prove when it comes to handling pressure situations.

Billy Cundiff already has booked a flight home to Phoenix, Ariz., for Saturday, the day the Ravens make final cuts to reach their final 53-man roster. His return flight to Baltimore on Sunday is less certain. "They'll let me know whether I'm coming back," the Ravens' incumbent kicker said after another strong effort to preserve his place on that roster Saturday night. Like everyone else, Cundiff isn't sure what to make of his preseason battle with Shayne Graham. Preseason and training camp numbers give a slight edge to Cundiff, who might also have an edge in leg strength.

The return of Billy Cundiff was bonus for Ravens fans who watched the kicker contribute to the team's 24-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. But it may also signal the end of Shayne Graham's tenure with the team. Graham was signed to the roster Dec. 21 as Cundiff was hobbled by his sore left calf. Graham converted two field goals and two extra points in the Christmas Eve win against the Cleveland Browns, but coach John Harbaugh said the team would not carry two kickers if Cundiff was healthy.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday that with kicker Billy Cundiff returning to the lineup in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Shayne Graham's stint with the Ravens may be nearing its end. Harbaugh said he would like to keep both kickers on the 53-man roster, but if the team needs to add a player for its playoff run, Graham will likely be the odd man out. “As long as Billy's healthy, he'll be our kicker,” Harbaugh said....

The Ravens finished the regular season by winning two games despite inconsistent gains from their passing attack. That problem could be remedied by the return of Anquan Boldin . The team's top wide receiver over the past two seasons is set to return this week from knee surgery in anticipation of the club's opening AFC Divisional game round Jan. 15. "I feel good," Boldin said after the Ravens' 24-16 win against the Bengals Sunday. "I worked with the trainers, rehabbed it, pushed it, and now I feel good.

Right guard Marshal Yanda is active and expected to start when the Ravens take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the teams' regular-season finale at Paul Brown Stadium. Yanda had missed the previous two days of practice after suffering ribs and thigh bruises in Saturday's 20-14 win against the Cleveland Browns, but returned to practice Friday on a limited basis. Yanda, who was listed as doubtful, has not missed a start since Nov. 22, 2009. Cornerback Cary Williams is also active and in line to start.

From Ravens coach John Harbaugh to kickers Billy Cundiff and Shayne Graham, the only consensus regarding the team's kicking situation is that a decision won't be made until Saturday at the earliest. Until then, both kickers said they are unaware of the team's plans for Sunday's regular-season finale at the Cincinnati Bengals. “I have no idea,” Cundiff said when asked about the decision-making process. “I'm not the decision-maker. So we'll let the decision-makers decide, but I feel pretty good with where I'm at, and I'm in a much better spot than I've been in almost a month now.” Said Graham: “Don't really know what kind of expectations to have.

Four days after watching Shayne Graham boot two field goals in Saturday's 20-14 win over the Cleveland Browns, Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff told reporters that he planned to attempt to practice on Wednesday. Cundiff, who has been dealing with a calf injury for three weeks, said it was disappointing that he sat out Saturday, but he believes resting a week was the right thing to do for both him and the 11-4 Ravens. “It's not very fun watching from the sidelines, I'll tell you that much,” Cundiff said.

Coach John Harbaugh agreed with the kicker's assessment during his weekly news conference Monday, but he also said he wants to see Cundiff practice before declaring him ready to contribute against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. “Billy Cundiff is doing really well,” Harbaugh said. “So we'll have to see about this week.

Billy Cundiff has practiced the past two days - albeit on a limited basis - which would seem to indicate that the Ravens kicker is inching closer to being ready to play in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. But special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg wasn't quite ready to give Cundiff - who has been bothered by a balky left calf - the green light during his weekly media briefing Thursday. “He had two good practices,” Rosburg said. “We'll see what the trainers say tomorrow.” One factor that could emerge in resting Cundiff until the playoffs is the presence of Shayne Graham, who spent seven seasons with the Bengals and might be well-versed in kicking at Paul Brown Stadium.
