The Ravens practically gave away a wide receiver this offseason, and he showed Sunday he can still play. Now, they’re having problems finding enough guys to suit up for them.
The Ravens announced they had placed rookie wideout Aaron Mellette on injured reserve with a knee injury. A seventh-round pick from Elon, he had impressed in the preseason, and was about to have to play because of attrition.
The Ravens are down to four healthy wideouts, since Jacoby Jones will miss a month with a knee sprain, and Deonte Thompson was inactive last week because of a foot problem that has bothered him since the preseason opener.
That leaves starter Torrey Smith, along with Brandon Stokley, Tandon Doss and Marlon Brown, barring any more transactions.
