Heap, Boulware Won't Play Against Saints

OWINGS MILLS, Md., Aug. 22 -- Todd Heap returned to practice on Monday afternoon, but the Baltimore Ravens' two-time Pro Bowl tight end will not play on Friday night when the Ravens face the New Orleans Saints in the Louisiana Superdome.

Heap, who underwent separate surgeries on his ankle and shoulder during the offseason, was taken off the physically unable to perform list. He missed 10 games last year with a severe ankle sprain, and Tuesday will mark his first time in pads since the end of last season.

"For Todd, it's time to go after it," Coach Brian Billick said. "We'll be prudent about it."

Linebacker Peter Boulware, who re-signed with the team last Thursday, also will not play on Friday. Both Heap and Boulware should be ready to play in the Ravens' preseason finale against the Redskins on Sept. 1.

Cornerback Samari Rolle, who injured his right knee early in the second quarter in Saturday's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, did not practice on Monday but said the injury is not serious. His status for Friday is undetermined, though Rolle said he would play if it were a regular season game.

Running back Jamal Lewis was held out against the Eagles after practicing all last week. Billick said that was because of some tenderness in Lewis's ankle, which was surgically repaired during the offseason. Lewis is expected to play this week.
