Ravens' notes: Monday

OWINGS MILLS -- Running back Jamal Lewis will attend the Ravens' practice sessions this week after missing the previous three weeks to complete 500 hours of community service, a requirement of his plea bargain for a federal cocaine conspiracy case.

Lewis, who rushed for a career-low 906 yards and three touchdowns last season, served four months in a Florida federal prison last year while recuperating from ankle surgery and spent two months in an Atlanta halfway house.

The former NFL Offensive Player of the Year signed a three-year, $26 million contract in March that acts as a one-year, $6 million financial commitment since it includes a $5 million option bonus next spring and a $5 million base salary for 2007.

Center Mike Flynn probably won't practice this week due to knee soreness.

Cornerback Samari Rolle will be limited due to an elbow injury.

Fullback Alan Ricard, who was plagued by a nagging calf injury last season, still isn't 100 percent.

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and wide receiver Demetrius Williams, the Ravens' first and fourth-round picks from Oregon aren't allowed to attend practice due to an NFL-NCAA agreement that restricts rookies from attending more than one minicamp until their college holds commencement ceremonies.

Oregon doesn't hold graduation until June 17.
