After he was released by the Ravens and Oakland Raiders last year, Jason Brookins hooked up with the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad. Brookins could get his first NFL start against those same Jaguars on Sunday at PSINet Stadium. The NFL landscape keeps shifting for Brookins, the 25-year-old running back who was just trying to win a permanent spot on the Ravens' roster when training camp began. A season-ending knee injury to Jamal Lewis put Brookins in the game plan, and a less serious malady affecting Terry Allen had coach Brian Billick and the 6-foot-2, 225-pound player talking yesterday as if he would be Sunday's starter.

Bobbie Williams hasn't been informed yet whether he will open Sunday's contest against the Denver Broncos at right guard, but with usual starter Marshal Yanda dealing with what coach John Harbaugh characterized Monday as a “seriously sprained ankle,” going with Williams would seem to make sense. If that does happen, the 13-year veteran said his preparation this week won't be any different from previous weeks. “You always want to be ready going in. So you've got to prepare as if you are going in,” Williams said prior to Wednesday's practice.

Williams practiced yesterday for the first time this week, but Blackshear took most of the repetitions with the first team."We have the bye next week so I guess they see it as a chance let me fully heal," said Williams. "But I don't see myself sitting down unless they tell me to."

Orioles left-handed reliever Troy Patton is heading to the 15-day disabled listed after spraining his right ankle as he was walking in the parking garage of his hotel Sunday night. Patton said X-rays on the ankle were negative, but he has been wearing a large boot since the injury and has had to use crutches for going long distances. He expected to be ready to return once he's eligible to come of the DL on Aug. 28. “I just kind of caught the edge wrong and rolled my ankle,” Patton said.

COLLEGE PARK -- The fourth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team faced a pair of pesky challenges in last night's season opener against Princeton, namely an opponent determined to dictate a slow tempo and the absence of the Terps' best player, senior Crystal Langhorne. Thanks to senior forward Jade Perry and junior point guard Kristi Toliver, Maryland slogged its way through both problems on the way to a 76-52 win over the Tigers in the opening round of the Preseason Women's National Invitation Tournament.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Joe Montana's stay on injured reserve could extend well beyond the four weeks the 49ers quarterback is scheduled to miss.The question of how long the healing takes comes down to what's hurt and what's not.Dr. Arthur White, who performed surgery on Montana in 1986 to remove a ruptured disk in his back and whose Daly City clinic is treating Montana's elbow, confirmed recent published reports, saying the injury is a torn ligament as well as a torn tendon. He said it will require a minimum of three months to heal completely.

The Orioles are considering moving left-handed starter Brian Matsuz - who was sent down to Triple-A Norfolk earlier this month - to the Tides' bullpen after lefty reliever Troy Patton landed on the disabled list Tuesday with a sprained right ankle. The front office had been considering the switch for several days, but Patton's injury made the need for a left-hander who is capable of throwing multiple innings out of the bullpen more pressing. "It's something Brian has talked about before as something he would welcome if it would help us and also help him get back up to the big leagues," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Alexander Teich has had his share of memorable games at the Naval Academy during his four years in Annapolis. At the top of the list was his performance last year against Notre Dame, when Teich rushed for 210 yards -- becoming the first Navy fullback to go over 200 yards in a game -- and caught his first touchdown pass in a 35-17 win. Teich, now a senior, has also had a few games that he would rather forget -- including two against Air Force....

Hours after watching Derrick Mason being helped off the field, the Ravens could breathe a sigh of relief. The veteran wide receiver had only sprained his right ankle. "Luckily, it's not anything serious that's going to keep me out a long period of time," said Mason, who had the ankle taped. "It's just stiff and sore. Not a lot of pain. " It initially seemed worse after Mason was hit by strong safety Dawan Landry late in Tuesday morning's practice. With his arms draped over trainers' shoulders, Mason couldn't put any weight on his right leg. About four hours later, Mason said the injury shouldn't affect his availability for the regular season.

- Landon Milbourne habitually wears his game face, almost a scowl. Playing on a guard-oriented team with the animated Greivis Vasquez, Milbourne isn't always the first Maryland player to command attention. But the stoic senior forward usually makes his presence felt. Milbourne scored 19 points Sunday - the eighth time in 11 games he has scored in double figures - to help the Terps (8-3) to a 72-59 victory over Florida Atlantic. Maryland won despite getting out-rebounded 49-45 by the smaller Owls (5-7)

Orioles All-Star center fielder Adam Jones will miss two to three weeks and could be done for the remainder of the season after severely spraining his left ankle Tuesday night. "We've got five weeks left; of course I want to be there on the field with my teammates. There's nothing I'd rather do," Jones said. "But at the same time, you've got to be smart. Is it smart enough to come back for the last couple of weeks, or is it smart enough to just let it heal all the way and come back next year?"

Orioles first baseman Luke Scott hit the night's longest one, his three-run shot landing about 25 feet shy of the first in-game home run off the warehouse in Camden Yards history. But on a night when homers flew out of the 18-year-old ballpark at a dizzying pace, the Orioles simply couldn't keep up with the powerful New York Yankees. Nick Swisher and Eric Hinske hit back-to-back homers off Chris Ray to break a seventh-inning tie and the Yankees hit five of the game's seven homers in a 9-6 victory over the Orioles before an announced 25,782 on Tuesday night at Camden Yards.
