Sams (wrist), DT Matt Zielinski (knee), LB Peter Boulware (knee), QB Anthony Wright (shoulder) and TE Trent Smith (leg) did not practice.

Odds and Ends

QB Kordell Stewart practiced yesterday, one day after sitting out drills with a sore shoulder. . . .

Rookie CB Lance Frazier, who averaged 20.8 yards per punt return as a senior at West Virginia, fielded punts for the first time yesterday. Coach Brian Billick hopes Sams will be able to start working out next week and give the Ravens a chance to see him as a returner. Incumbent PR Lamont Brightful dropped two punts and drew sarcastic applause from fans when he cleanly caught a punt in the morning session.

"There is only so much you can do to help someone with confidence," Billick said of Brightful's continued struggles. "He either has to believe in what he is doing, snap out of it, or he won't."
