Tackle Willie Anderson and guard Chris Chester will man the right side of the offensive line for a few more weeks. Coach John Harbaugh announced today that starting right offensive tackle Adam Terry will undergo an arthroscopic procedure to clean out his ailing right knee.
Harbaugh said Terry, who has missed the Ravens' last two games, is dealing with a "slight mensicus tear" in the knee that has not healed as quickly as player, coaches and medical staff had hoped. The operation will take place tomorrow, and Harbaugh estimated that Terry could return in time for the game against the Houston Texans on Nov. 9.
* Harbaugh said Troy Smith had recovered enough from his tonsil infection to leapfrog Todd Bouman as the backup quarterback for yesterday's 27-13 win against the Miami Dolphins. "We just felt like he was back enough to do it," Harbaugh said, adding that Smith has been an active participant in the weight room.
* Linebacker Antwan Barnes has a supporter in Harbaugh. Barnes was flagged for taunting Dolphins return specialist Ted Ginn Jr. after a kick return late in the second quarter, but Barnes said afterward that he was bending down to help lift rookie safety Haruki Nakamura, who made the tackle on Ginn, to his feet. "We take Antwan at his word," Harbaugh said. "... He's going to have to be careful with his body language."
* Harbaugh said the team plans to ask the league to review Dolphins wide receiver Brandon London's questionable hit on tight end Edgar Jones on a Miami kickoff return early in the second quarter. Despite taking place in front of an official, London was not flagged for decking Jones even though it took place after Ginn had been forced out-of-bounds. "We will be sending that one in," Harbaugh said.
