Ravens Monday Madness
--Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister will start against Kansas City after a one-game benching for violation of team rules.
Team officials said McAlister will be fined the maximum amount allowed under the collective bargaining agreement. With McAlister back, the secondary is much stronger as it moves Gary Baxter back to free safety.
"I'm not one for fining much," coach Brian Billick said. "I have not fined guys much in my tenure here. Repeat offenses tend to get my attention."
This latest incident will likely hinder McAlister's future with the team. A first-round pick in 1999, McAlister is scheduled become an unrestricted free agent in March. Knowing Billick's low tolerance for misconduct, it's not probable that the Ravens will try to re-sign McAlister.
"Chris has made a mistake, he knows he made a mistake, and we will go forward," Billick said. "Trust is a unique thing. Chris and I will work with that, just like he will work with it with the rest of his teammates."
--FS Gary Baxter will move from cornerback to free safety because Chris McAlister returns to the starting lineup after a one-game suspension.
--LG Edwin Mulitalo is expected to practice and return to the starting lineup after missing the last game with an ankle injury.
--LG Casey Rabach will likely return to backup since Edwin Mulitalo is scheduled to return to practice after being sidelined with an ankle injury.
--WR Marcus Robinson has yet to have his playing time reduced despite numerous dropped passes.
