Donte' Stallworth is coming back next week

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.

  1. I’d say they’ve already begun “to approach their expectations.” In addition to posting the points Florio mentioned in two of their last 3 (the other was 20 points against a Patriots team with 2 weeks to prepare and playing at home), Flacco has the second highest rating in the NFL over the last 5 games (a pretty big sample considering they’ve only played 7 games), throwing 9 TDs and 1 INT over that span. And this is with injuries along the offensive line and an injured Ray Rice.

  2. Most teams worry about players on IR.
    The Ratbirds have to worry about players on parole.

  3. Welcome back, Donte! You’ve been more than a stand-up guy through all this, taking responsibility for the needless death of Mario Reyes, who held his own life in his hands and fumbled. Given the circumstances, I know I wouldn’t have been half the man were—and are.
    Good luck today!

    The Steelers have made the most off-the-field news this year, had meetings with the Commish, public apologies, etc., etc.
    Ravens look squeeky clean by comparison.

    Oh yeah… kill somebody, play for the Ravens.

  6. Oh yeah… kill somebody, play for the Ravens.
    If you’re an MMA fan, I’m dying of laughter. Your stupidity is killing me!

  7. Steeler fans are so funny, the Ray Lewis murder incident was 10 years ago, let it go…. The steelers have a rapist at QB, both acts are terrible, but I would rather deal with a murderer, than a rapist…. Imagine if that was your daughter Rothlesberger was accused of raping…

  8. Can’t wait for the Ravens to play the squeelers with him on the field………thats if they can field a defense with the NFL looking to suspend classless headhunting animals which happens to make up half the squeelers defense.

  9. I love how most steelers fans accuse the Ravens of having nothin but killers and felons on the team. Ray Lewis screwed up and was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He did not kill anyone, but he made bad decisions. Stallworth could have fought the charges and WON the case according to just about every who reviewd the case. He took what happened and met it head on and squashed it the right way. More than most of us could do.
    But The stinkers get rid of there #1 reciever to try and look like a first class organization. They get praised by everyone for doing it and “standing there ground” Stinker fans gloat about how awesome the franchise is ….. BUT then Ben rapes ANOTHER girl and all of a sudden he is being wrongly accused ( according to the team ) he’s a great guy who just made a bad decision by letting barely legal girls drink…… All i can say is this : Say what you want about the Ravens, They knew who and what they were getting when they got Stallworth. The talked to him for weeks and got to know him, the legal team reviewed the case to make sure they were making the right move. He made 1 mistake ( that a sober man would have made, that was a police officers sworn statement ) that tragically caused a man his life. Ben knowingly raped multiple people and was ushered back into the organization with open arms…… Gotta love the double standard by the team, the organization and the fans there.
