More Friday camp notes - waiting for J.Lewis

WESTMINSTER --Baltimore Ravens team officials still don't know if running back Jamal Lewis will report to Westminster on Monday because they haven't heard from his lawyer whether probation officials have cleared him to leave the Northern District of Georgia.

Lewis served two months in an Atlanta halfway house following a four-month federal prison sentence for a drug crime.

Running backs coach Matt Simon said he believes Lewis will be here "if his probation officer showed up for work," Friday.

RESTED: Quarterback Kyle Boller's arm was rested Friday. He'll play about 10 snaps in today's 50-snap scrimmage against the Washington Redskins. Hitting the quarterback will not be allowed.

TRAINING ROOM: Billick indicated that any player with any type of injury is unlikely to play today. That list will include tight end Todd Heap (ankle, shoulder), running back Musa Smith (leg), nose guard Kelly Gregg (hyperextended elbow), return specialist B.J. Sams (hamstring) and linebacker Dan Cody (knee).

Running back Chester Taylor (exhaustion) returned to practice and will play today.

QUICK HITS: The Ravens are likely to take a wait-and-see approach on signing linebacker Peter Boulware as many in the organization want to see how young linebackers like Rod Green perform. There's debate as to whether signing Boulware this early in camp would be the correct move. ... Defensive end Chase Goodpaster is no longer with the team. Cornerback Cash Mouton remains in camp although he's not listed on the roster after team officials said he was waived with an injury settlement. ... The Ravens held a tryout for defensive backs and receivers and plan to sign a few players pending physicals. …Billick anointed the defending champion Pittsburgh Steelers as the team to beat in the AFC North. "Absolutely, Pittsburgh, they are the division champs and were 15-1," he said. "That's about as clear-cut as you can get."
