Ravens’ Ogden Put on Inactive List

The Baltimore Ravens put All-Pro left tackle Jonathan Ogden on the inactive list for Sunday night’s game at Jacksonville.

Coach Brian Billick said Friday that he’s holding Ogden out of the game to keep him from aggravating the right ankle he sprained last week in Cleveland.

“The idea is that he’s down this week so we can have him next week,” Billick said. “I’m sure he’d want to press through and try to go on Sunday, but we’re not going to put him at risk.”

Denver Bronco running back Terrell Davis is listed as “definitely out” for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.

Davis has not been at full speed for an entire game all season after spraining his left ankle in Denver’s season-opening loss to St. Louis. The injury has subsequently led to pain in his foot.

Without Davis, the Broncos will again turn to rookie Mike Anderson, who leads the AFC with 429 yards on 91 carries in four games.

Pittsburgh Steeler Coach Bill Cowher declined to announce his starting quarterback against the New York Jets.

“It will be a game-time decision,” Cowher said, adding that it “served no purpose” to designate either Kent Graham or Kordell Stewart as the starter for Sunday’s game at the Meadowlands before then.

Graham had been the starter before last week’s win at Jacksonville, when an injured right hip sidelined him and convinced Cowher to start Stewart. It was the first win of the season for the 1-3 Steelers.

Minnesota Viking defensive end Talance Sawyer was fined by the NFL for the second time this season for an illegal hit on a quarterback. Sawyer must pay $10,000 for a hit on Detroit’s Charlie Batch in the Vikings’ 31-24 victory Sunday. . . . Still unsure about the cause of his blackouts, Bronco assistant coach Ron Milus returned to the sideline Friday after a 17-day absence.
