The Baltimore Ravens have plenty of possession receivers. Their only real deep threat — Donte’ Stallworth — has been out all year with a broken foot. (Not to be confused with Brett Favre’s “broke foot.”)
When the Ravens return from their bye week on November 7 with a home game against the Dolphins, Stallworth will be on the field.
Per a league source, Stallworth is ready to return next week.
Without Stallworth, the Ravens have scored 31 and 37 points in two of their last three games. With Stallworth stretching the field and opening up all the underneath routes for the likes of Anquan Boldin, Derrick Mason, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, the Baltimore offense could begin to approach their expectations.
For Stallworth, who’ll turn 30 on November 10, it’ll be his first regular-season game since Week 17 of the 2008 season. He missed all of 2009 after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter and receiving a one-year suspension from the league.
