Ravens release Deonte Thompson again, defensive lineman Lawrence Guy acquired

Wide receiver released for second time in past five days, Fitzgerald Toussaint signed to practice squad

September 24, 2014|By Aaron Wilson | The Baltimore Sun

Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was cut by the Ravens on Wednesday, marking the second time in the past five days he's been released.

The Ravens replaced him on the roster by claiming former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Lawrence Guy off waivers. He was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday.

The Ravens need depth on the defensive line with Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan both dealing with knee injuries. Canty didn't practice Wednesday. Jernigan has a meniscus injury that kept him from playing against the Cleveland Browns and is still hoping to avoid surgery.

The Ravens re-signed running back Fitzgerald Toussaint to the practice squad after he cleared waivers on Wednesday.

Guy, 24, has played in three games this season with no statistics registered. In 10 games last season, the 6-foot-4, 318-pound lineman had 16 tackles. A former Arizona State player and Las Vegas native who has also played for the Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers, Guy has 38 career tackles, one sack and four pass deflections.

Thompson was inactive for the first two games, then released last Saturday prior to the Ravens' 23-21 win over the Browns.

Thompson was re-signed Tuesday when the Ravens cut Toussaint.

Thompson caught 10 passes for 96 yards last season and scored three touchdowns during the preseason, but hasn't played in a game this season.
