On a day that saw the return of the Dolphins' Ricky Williams and the humiliation of the scandal-plagued Minnesota Vikings, one of the most notable developments occurred off the field. Eight months after suffering a mild stroke, Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi has been cleared by team doctors and could return to practice this week, the team said yesterday. The game plan had been for the 32-year-old to take a year off, but he changed his mind. Bruschi suffered the stroke in February and later had surgery to repair a small hole in his heart, but he has worked out regularly and attended defensive meetings.

There were some anxious moments, but the quarterback from South Jersey and the head coach who was imported from the Eagles both enjoyed a successful debut yesterday for the Baltimore Ravens. Rookie quarterback Joe Flacco, out of Audubon High in Camden County and the University of Delaware, showed unusual poise in his first NFL game as the Ravens defeated the Cincinnati Bengals, 17-10, at M&T Bank Stadium. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, an Eagles assistant coach the previous 10 years, expressed true emotion.

DANA POINT, Calif. - L.J. Smith never really lived up to expectations with the Eagles. But Ravens coach John Harbaugh thinks the oft-maligned tight end can provide a big boost to his team's passing attack. The Ravens made it to the playoffs last season with a rookie quarterback, Joe Flacco. But their success was primarily fueled by their defense, which finished second overall and third in points allowed. They were only 28th in passing offense, and Flacco threw just 14 touchdown passes.

BALTIMORE - He is a rookie, and sometimes obviously so, charged with caretaking a team's offense whose defense wins its games. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, with his big frame and big arm, gets that. Yesterday, against the Eagles, he did that. Flacco, the pride of Audubon (N.J.) High and the University of Delaware, completed 12 of 26 passes for 183 yards. He threw for two touchdowns, both of which had more to do with the catchers than the thrower. But that's all right. Against Jim Johnson's confusing, voracious defense, in front of a legion of adoring family and friends of dual allegiances, Flacco threw no interceptions, lost no fumbles and, at the end, was on the right end of a 36-7 win and a 7-4 team.

Baltimore left tackle Jonathan Ogden probably will miss the Ravens' game against the Eagles on Sunday with a pulled left hamstring. Ogden had to be helped off the field during the fourth quarter of the Ravens' 20-6 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The seven-time Pro Bowler was limping yesterday in the team complex, and a crutch rested against his cubicle in the locker room. The Ravens (4-2) will wait until tomorrow to formally declare his status for Sunday's game, but coach Brian Billick indicated that Baltimore was preparing to play without Ogden, running back Jamal Lewis (two-game suspension)

Ricky Williams patiently answered every question before finally being whisked away to catch the team bus. The enigmatic running back returned from a 1-year retirement and four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy yesterday, and his presence spawned hope for the Miami Dolphins despite a 27-13 loss to the host Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "It felt good," Williams said. "It felt like I never left. " Williams spent his year away from football traveling, studying holistic medicine and becoming a yoga instructor and now is determined to prove he's the same dominant player he was before abruptly turning his back on his teammates in the summer of 2004.

The Oakland Raiders have agreed to pay No. 1 draft pick JaMarcus Russell at least $31 million guaranteed after lengthy negotiations with his agents over the last four days, the Contra Costa Times reported last night. The quarterback is expected to sign today. The proposed deal is expected to be for six years and make it possible for Russell to earn as much as $60 million over the life of the contract. Bengals 27, Ravens 20 CINCINNATI - Steve McNair threw an interception to set up Carson Palmer's fourth-quarter touchdown pass, and Cincinnati's defense pulled off a goal-line stand that preserved a 27-20 victory over Baltimore.

Elvis Grbac had the kind of day against the Cleveland Browns yesterday that makes a football player keep hoping he'll wake up any minute and realize it was all just a bad dream. While the Baltimore Ravens quarterback was throwing four interceptions in a 27-17 loss, the weight of being the highly paid free agent destined to make the Ravens more of a powerhouse seemed to grow heavier and heavier. Grbac completed 23 of 44 passes for 261 yards. Despite touchdowns to Brandon Stokley and Todd Heap, his passing rating was an abysmal 47.6.

Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Joe Flacco hasn't been in the NFL long enough to be jaded, and that is one reason Sunday's home game against the Eagles is a big deal for the product of Audubon High School and the University of Delaware. "It will really be cool, and there will be a number of people from Audubon coming down," Flacco said outside the Ravens' locker room following Sunday's 30-10 loss to the New York Giants. "I grew up watching the Eagles, and now they are coming to our house.

Jake Delhomme wasn't about to be upstaged by a backup quarterback who hadn't tossed a touchdown pass since Christmas. Delhomme threw for a career-high 365 yards and two touchdowns, and Carolina slipped past the host Baltimore Ravens, 23-21, yesterday for its fourth straight win. After Ravens quarterback Steve McNair left with a concussion and sprained neck in the first quarter, Kyle Boller took over. A starter for 3 years before being displaced by McNair, Boller threw three touchdown passes to provide Baltimore (4-2)

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - It has already come to occupy a revered spot in Baltimore Ravens lore. How, after a dreadful 31-3 loss to the Colts in mid-October, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron called his first-year players together and told them they were no longer rookies. How he singled out quarterback Joe Flacco, pointing his finger and saying, "You have to lead us. " How the product of Audubon (N.J.) High School and the University of Delaware then led his team to a win over the Dolphins, sparking a 9-2 run that carried Baltimore into the playoffs.
