Ravens LB Ray Lewis (shoulder-calf) was upgraded from doubtful to questionable yesterday for Sunday's home game against the Titans.
Lewis's partner at inside linebacker, Edgerton Hartwell, was added to the injury list as questionable after suffering a kneecap irritation during the latter part of Wednesday's practice. Neither Lewis nor Hartwell took part in yesterday's practice; both are regarded as game-time decisions.
"We think he's going to be okay," Coach Brian Billick said about Harwell's availability for the surging Titans, "but it's sore."
Also, WR Brandon Stokley (foot) was downgraded from questionable to doubtful.
* CARDINAL OUT: Cardinals LB Rob Fredrickson has numbness in his arm and will be sidelined the next two weeks.
Fredrickson, 31, lost feeling in his body temporarily following a collision in the team's Nov. 10 loss to Seattle. He recovered enough to play last week against Philadelphia, though never regained full strength in his arm. The team wouldn't say which arm is injured.
An MRI exam performed Thursday was negative and the team said Fredrickson will try to regain his strength with rest and rehabilitation.
* PANTHER JAILED: Panthers WR Steve Smith was jailed and charged with misdemeanor assault after attacking a teammate earlier this week. Anthony Bright, a practice-squad player, had a broken nose and was hospitalized for two nights following the fight, which occurred during film session on Monday. Bright filed a report with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police following his release from the hospital. The Panthers had already suspended Smith for Sunday's home game against Atlanta.
* STEGALL HONORED: Milt Stegall, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' record-setting slotback, was chosen most valuable player in the Canadian Football League.
