The Baltimore Ravens have placed eight-year veteran linebacker Bernardo Harris on the injured reserve list, thus putting an end to his season.

Harris spent seven seasons with Green Bay before signing with Baltimore for 2002.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder started 10 games for the Ravens last season, finishing with 50 tackles and two sacks.

In Green Bay, he started a total of 79 games and had 7 1/2 sacks.

In other moves, Baltimore released quarterback Matt Lylte, running back Dameon Hunter, wide receivers Milton Wynn and Hugh Smith and centre Mike Mabry.

Defensively, the Ravens cut veteran defensive end Dave Nugent, nose tackle Trey Freeman, linebackers Brenden Givan, Amon Arnold and Nick Stamper and defensive backs Ray Perryman and Arthur Smith.

The team also released kicker J.R. Jenkins.

Also placed on IR Monday were wide receiver Javin Hunter (torn Achilles' tendon), tight end Trent Smith (broken tibia) and offensive lineman Tony Pashos (hand).
