It's been a month since Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson has played in a football game as he's been inactive ever since catching one pass during a November overtime loss to the Chicago Bears. Now that veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion, Thompson has an increased chance of being active Monday night against the Detroit Lions. If Thompson is active, the Ravens would have five wide receivers active Monday, including Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones, Marlon Brown and Tandon Doss.

Apparently in the two weeks after the injury to tight end Dennis Pitta, the Ravens had seen enough of their young receiving corps and a patchwork group of tight ends to decide they needed to do something about it. In a span of 24 hours, the Ravens signed veteran slot receiver Brandon Stokley and agreed to terms with Dallas Clark , a pass-catching tight end who also spent a lot of time in the slot when he played alongside Stokley with Peyton Manning...

Ravens rookie wide receiver Brandon Stokley had a million reasons not to suit up for Southwestern Louisiana's game against Tulane on Halloween afternoon last fall. He played despite attending his mother's funeral just five days earlier. That would have been reason enough to sit out. Now throw in that Stokley was fighting an illness that kept him out of practice all that week. Plus, he was playing for a school that was 1-6 and he was becoming irritated with the criticism of the coach, who happened to be his father, Nelson Stokley.

Quarterbacks Tony Banks: The X-factor in revamped attack, Banks is the Ravens' fourth straight different starter entering training camp. Trent Dilfer: Brought in as a security blanket at quarterback after throwing for 12,969 yards in six seasons at Tampa Bay. Chris Redman: Can deliver ball quickly and accurately, but he's still two or three years away. Dan Robinson: Hawaii's all-time passing leader won't have to worry about adjusting to winter in Baltimore. Running backs Priest Holmes: Incumbent, dependable starter lacks big-play speed to remain an every-down back.

The Ravens' receiving corps got a little leaner yesterday when Marcus Nash became the latest to join the casualty list. Nash fractured a bone in his lower jaw when he landed face-first on the ground attempting to make a catch on the third play of team drills. Because his chinstrap was unbuckled, the impact with the ground forced his facemask back into his chin and broke the alveolar bone that holds the lower teeth in place, loosening four teeth. The prognosis is that he'll be out two to six weeks.

The results of the Ravens' draft this weekend remain: To Be Determined. The Ravens addressed their needs at depth across the board with their seven picks, but they probably won't see the impact of this draft until the 2002 or 2003 season. Most likely, this class' success will be remembered in the long run by the production of the first two picks, Arizona State tight end Todd Heap and Baylor safety Gary Baxter. There's a feeling around the Ravens that they could become steals for a team picking toward the bottom of each round.

The expression on receiver Ron Johnson's face never seems to change when discussing his performance. Whether Johnson has 100 receiving yards, as he did in Saturday night's 13-10 preseason win in Atlanta, or is held without a reception, as was the case much of the second half of last season, the second-year player never looks happy. But after leading the team with 108 yards on four receptions Saturday, Johnson has something to be pleased about. "Statistically I had a good game, but I did a lot of little things I shouldn't have done in recognizing the coverage and knowing what I am running," Johnson said.

The last time the Ravens visited the "trash heap" for a receiver, they traded a fourth-round draft pick to the Buffalo Bills for Lee Evans in 2011. And now, they've brought in tight end Dallas Clark and wide receiver Brandon Stokley. We're all familiar with Evans. He played in only nine games and had four catches for 74 yards that season. He failed to secure the late game-winning touchdown pass in the end zone against the New England Patriots in the AFC championship, and eventually replaced the human "Water Buffalo" - quarterback Scott Mitchell - as the biggest name one-year failure in the history of the Ravens.

The Ravens made Terrell Suggs the highest-paid linebacker in National Football League history Wednesday, but the $63 million price tag over six years was the cost of doing business in the NFL. By keeping the loquacious pass rusher in Baltimore, the Ravens added another chapter in their instructive book on how to beat free agency and the salary cap. In an era when players in all professional sports casually trade uniforms and traditions year to year, they...

Stepping onto the national stage tonight, the Ravens are committed to following a script that contains little mystery and lots of strong language. A touchdown underdog to the 3-0 Denver Broncos, the 0-2 Ravens are looking to bash a Super Bowl contender rather than sneak up on them at Ravens Stadium. The Ravens are trumpeting a hard-hitting, smash-mouth running attack in their only Monday Night Football appearance of the season and are planning to take it to the NFL's top-ranked rushing defense John Madden-style.

Consider it a midpoint between two minicamps. Before the Ravens convene for their second minicamp beginning on June 7, about half of the team will take part in a five-day passing camp, starting May 17.Nearly all of the team's quarterbacks, receivers, tight ends, linebackers and defensive backs -- with the notable exception of recently converted safety Rod Woodson -- will be on hand. That week will allow coach Brian Billick to install more of his offense, while defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis refines his coverage schemes.

Travis Taylor showed no fear. With all eyes fixed upon him, it was crunch time for Taylor when his number was surprisingly called by offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh. But instead of having to make a tough, third-down slant over the middle, Taylor had to run a go route to the front of the team meeting room. Cavanaugh picked the wide receiver to deliver the red-zone game plan before a recent preseason game, instructing every player of his assignment. Graduation day has certainly arrived for the players responsible for the Ravens' passing game.
