The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed receiver Brandon Stokley just days after releasing him.
The Ravens released Stokley on Friday in order to sign tight end Billy Bajema prior to the team’s game the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
With the game in the books, the team reversed course Tuesday to re-sign Stokley. Bajema was released to clear a spot for Stokley on the roster.
Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh said the decision to release Stokley last week was because he was dealing with an injury and the team needed the extra body available to play.
“Brandon has a groin/hip flexor issue where he wasn’t ready to play,” John Harbaugh said, via the team’s official website. “We had to find a way to get Billy back up so we could play Billy, and it was a numbers issue. … It was all health related.”
Stokley has nine catches for 79 yards in three games played this season for the Ravens.
