Mon, 03 Oct 2005 22:33:10 -0700

Brent Jones, of the Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens RB B.J. Sams made another error when trying to field a punt Week 4.

Sams had another mistake in the preseason when he fielded a punt inside the 5-yard line. Head coach Brian Billick wasn't as forgiving the second time around, saying, "B.J., you can't make a mistake like that. We'll continue to bring focus to it. He's not a rookie anymore, so our expectations are much more demanding in terms of him. That's a critical error, and we can't make that kind of mistake."
