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.

The Ravens have re-signed veteran wide receiver Deonte Thompson to their practice squad and cut defensive tackle A.J. Pataiali'i. Thompson's practice squad salary will be more than the usual $6,300 per week, according to a source. Thompson cleared waivers Thursday, one day after being released for the second time in five days. He caught three touchdown passes during the preseason and 10 passes for 96 yards last season. Thompson is possibly the fastest player on the team with 4.21-second speed in the 40-yard dash.

The Ravens deactivated a few surprises for Sunday's home game against the Dallas Cowboys, including starting left guard Ramon Harewood. Harewood had started the first five contests, but he appeared to struggle slightly in his last two outings. The Sun reported Friday that Harewood would be replaced in the starting lineup by Bobbie Williams. The team also elected to sideline kick returner Deonte Thompson. The undrafted rookie ranked 13th in the NFL in kick return average (25.9 yards)

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.

Beyond executing on offense and playing sound defense, the primary goal for every team is to exit preseason games without any major injuries. In their 44-16 victory tonight over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Ravens came close to achieving that but there is some concern about the health of second-year wide receiver Deonte Thompson . Thompson left the stadium with what appeared to be a soft boot on his ankle. Ravens coach John Harbaugh wouldn't specifically address his condition but said he'll know more about his team's injury situation on Friday.

Ravens reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson was arrested and charged with suspicion of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia Friday night, according to the Gainesville, Fla., police department. Police said an officer " noticed a strong odor of burned cannabis" coming from a Chevrolet SUV, which had been pulled over about 11:45 p.m. Friday night for driving without its headlights on. A search of the vehicle found bags totaling 29 grams of marijuana inside a duffel bag, but Thompson said only the bag was his. The driver, Alvon Summerall, and another passenger, Erskine J. McKinley , said the drugs were their own. Thompson played at Florida and was signed by the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

The narrow margin of the Ravens' 9-6 win against the Kansas City Chiefs might have been more comfortable if Deonte Thompson had not committed the biggest gaffe of his rookie season. The kick returner opened the second half by returning a Ryan Succop kickoff 32 yards. But at the 29-yard line, former Ravens wide receiver Terrence Copper reached out and stripped the football from Thompson's right arm and former Ravens linebacker Edgar Jones pounced on the loose ball at the 29. According to both Thompson and inside linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, Copper's play was the only hurdle that prevented Thompson from reaching the end zone and giving the team what would have been a 10-3 lead.

Wide receiver Deonte Thompson, an undrafted rookie from Florida, turned heads during offseason workouts by blazing past defenders for a few long touchdown passes. Early in training camp, the 23-year-old speedster has been running routes with fellow wide receivers Tandon Doss and LaQuan Williams on the second unit. “D.T. has done a good job. For a guy that was pretty much off the street coming in -- don't know much about him -- he's done very well,” wide receivers coach Jim Hostler said.

Coming less than a week after running back Ray Rice was arrested following an alleged physical altercation with his fiancée, the timing of wide receiver Deonte Thompson's arrest Friday on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia was extremely poor. Owner Steve Bisciotti and the organization's top decisions makers have worked very hard to change the image of the franchise. Two arrests in a week's span doesn't diminish that effort, though it's certainly not a good look and there will be a lot of pressure on members of the organization to behave the rest of the offseason.

NEW ORLEANS - Inside the Ravens' locker room late Thursday night, wide receiver Kamar Aiken broke into a smile as he reflected on how to handle the anxiety of waiting to learn whether he has made the team. With Saturday's 4 p.m. deadline for the 53-man roster closing in on the Ravens, Aiken and his fellow wide receivers likely made one decision even more difficult with their performances in the team's preseason finale, a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- After an evening spent dodging and sprinting past potential Dallas Cowboys tacklers, Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson wasn't about to run and hide from what was blatantly obvious. Having seemingly lost ground in the wide receiver competition in recent weeks, Thompson needed a performance like this in the worst way.    “I'm in a tough competition right now, so everything counts, and it was big for me personally,” Thompson said following the Ravens' 37-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Setting the scene: The Ravens had an hour-long walkthrough before beginning practice at 1 p.m. on a cool, breezy afternoon in Owings Mills. Starters ended practice at 2:45 p.m., with the rest of the team working on special teams until 3:15 p.m. The team was in helmets and shells, not full pads. Jernigan is unstoppable: The Ravens' injuries at defensive line have overshadowed the show rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has put on. It wasn't game action, but Jernigan was treating offensive linemen like traffic cones during a running drill, and carried it over into full-team action by blowing past right guard John Urschel.

Ravens reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson's felony and misdemeanor drug charges have been dismissed by Florida prosecutors, according to his lawyer and court records. Thompson was arrested in February in Gainesville, Fla., and charged with felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The case against Thompson was dropped due to insufficient evidence against him, according to Alachua County court records. Alvon Summerall, a co-defendant and the driver of the car that was stopped with Thompson a passenger, has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license, according to court records.

Just as owner  Steve Bisciotti  had done a day earlier, Ravens coach  John Harbaugh   stood firmly behind  Ray Rice  on Tuesday, saying that the running back “will be part of our team” in 2014. Harbaugh, however, did express disappointment that three of his players - Rice, wide receiver  Deonte Thompson  and offensive guard/tackle  Jah Reid   - were arrested in a 22-day span, calling their actions “unacceptable ... and disappointing.”   “You also separate the person from the activity and redemption is something we think is important as well,” Harbaugh said Tuesday morning at the NFL owners meetings at the  Ritz-Carlton  Orlando Grande Lakes resort.

As if there weren't enough obstacles facing an undrafted rookie in the NFL, wide receiver Deonte Thompson knows his every move is being observed by Ravens coaches. That can cut both ways depending on how the University of Florida product fares in training camp, but Thompson said he is simply thankful for the opportunity to make an impression with the coaching staff. “They tell me that every day, you're getting evaluated. So I want to go out there and show my talents,” he said Thursday.
