Indianapolis -- Last season, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Brandon Stokley returned to Baltimore to play the Ravens for the first time since leaving after the 2002 season. He caught a season-high seven passes for 83 yards in a 24-7 victory. When Stokley returns again Saturday, it will be strictly as a spectator. Stokley has been sidelined for more than three months after suffering a season-ending torn Achilles' heel against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 24. "This is a tough one, because when we played them last year, that was probably the most fun I had in a regular-season game," Stokley said yesterday in Indianapolis.

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.

For 13 games, Brandon Stokley was an afterthought. In the Indianapolis Colts' past four games, Stokley has been a revelation. It wasn't a good start or a likely destination, but when the Colts play the Kansas City Chiefs today in an AFC semifinal, Stokley will command serious attention. On a team that features Marvin Harrison, Edgerrin James, Reggie Wayne and Marcus Pollard as primary targets, the former Ravens receiver has become another scintillating option in Peyton Manning's passing game.

Ravens starting defensive end Chris Canty , who was listed on Wednesday's injury report as not practicing because of a thigh injury, practiced in full on Thursday and appears in line to face the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend.  The only three Ravens who were listed on the injury report as not practicing were wide receiver Brandon Stokley (groin), linebackers Josh Bynes (thigh, finger) and Albert McClellan (shoulder). Bynes is dealing with a finger infection that hospitalized him Tuesday night.

Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley was inactive for the first half of the season, playing catch with quarterback Trent Dilfer on the scout team. On Sunday, he was playing catch again, this time grabbing an important 13-yard pass on third down, among others, right in front of the Oakland Raiders' sideline in the third quarter of the Ravens' 16-3 AFC championship victory. In two Sundays, Stokley - who epitomizes the Ravens' season as well as anyone - will likely start in Super Bowl XXXV.

Barring any major changes in negotiating strategies, the Ravens face the rare but strong possibility of having two fourth-round draft picks hold out of training camp, which begins tomorrow at Western Maryland College.Players must report by 4 p.m. today, but University of Arizona offensive tackle Edwin Mulitalo and Southwestern Louisiana receiver Brandon Stokley may be among the missing. University of Virginia safety Anthony Poindexter, selected in the seventh round, also doesn't have a contract, but he isn't expected to play this season because he is still rehabilitating from major knee surgery.

Travis Taylor has earned a promotion. Ravens coach Brian Billick said yesterday that Taylor, the team's go-to receiver of the future, would receive extended action in the present, replacing Brandon Stokley as the starting flanker. The move comes after Taylor set a career high with 90 yards receiving on four receptions, including a dazzling one-handed catch for the game-winning touchdown, in Sunday's 20-13 victory over the Denver Broncos. The 10th pick in the 2000 draft, Taylor was given the offensive game ball after a dynamic effort in his first start in nearly a year.

Ravens receiver Brandon Stokley will miss Sunday's game at Miami against the Dolphins because of a sprained left foot, and rookie Javin Hunter is expected to start in his place. Stokley hurt his foot during the Ravens' win Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals when offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden accidentally fell on the back of his leg during a running play. Hunter previously started for an injured Stokley (ankle) at Indianapolis against the Colts and had one catch for 7 yards. "I'm just going to go out there with the same attitude I always have, try and make plays to help us win," Hunter said.

From rookies and first-year starters, turnovers are expected. From Jamal Lewis and Brandon Stokley, such carelessness is intolerable. Lewis and Stokley both lost fumbles during the Ravens' 17-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, and coach Brian Billick made a point after the game to say the fumbles have to stop. The Ravens have fumbled 10 times in the past three games and have lost five - a disturbing mark in an otherwise pleasantly surprising season for Billick. Sunday's turnovers came on back-to-back possessions in the second quarter, and both gave Jacksonville the ball in Ravens territory.

The Ravens have cut veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley and have re-signed veteran tight end Billy Bajema. Stokley's release is a good indication that Jacoby Jones (knee), Marlon Brown (hamstring) and Deonte Thompson (concussion) are nearing a return. The veteran wide receiver, a member of the Ravens' Super Bowl XXXV championship team, had been dealing with a groin injury and didn't play in the Ravens' 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. Stokley didn't practice Friday and was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley spent four seasons with quarterback Peyton Manning in Indianapolis and the two reunited last year for one season in Denver. Like Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and tight end Dallas Clark , Stokley has great familiarity with Manning. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that he feels comfortable this week giving Ravens teammates advice on how to defend the 12-time Pro Bowl quarterback. Frankly, he just doesn't know how much good that would do. “That's the hard thing with Peyton.

Since the start of training camp a month ago, quarterback Joe Flacco has watched as his top two tight ends went down and prominent young wide-outs failed to step up. He saw the Ravens bring in veteran pass-catchers Brandon Stokley, Dallas Clark and Visanthe Shiancoe. And he has recently gotten a look at rookies Aaron Mellette and Marlon Brown running with the first-team offense. The Ravens are still looking to find the right combination at those positions and Flacco is still trying to get a read on the Ravens' motley crew of new receivers.

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...

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.

In a span of 24 hours this weekend, the Ravens added two players with a combined 24 years of NFL experience, 858 career catches and 89 touchdowns. Wanting to add more depth at wide receiver and give quarterback Joe Flacco a couple of reliable, veteran targets, the Ravens struck deals with wide receiver Brandon Stokley and tight end Dallas Clark, two former Indianapolis Colts who have familiarity with offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell. Stokley, who has played four of his 14 seasons in the NFL with the Ravens and starred in the team's Super Bowl XXXV victory, finalized his one-year deal Sunday morning and watched practice later in the day at M&T Bank Stadium.

When most of the NFL doubted Brandon Stokley - including Stokley himself - the Indianapolis Colts believed. They believed enough to give a two-year, $2.9 million contract to Stokley in March, when he was hobbling around on crutches. They believed enough to stick with him as their No. 3 receiver despite constantly being sidelined by a foot injury, a pulled hamstring and a concussion. The payoff has come in the playoffs: Stokley has produced eight receptions, 201 yards (a 25.1 average) and a team-best three touchdowns as the Colts head into Sunday's AFC championship showdown with the New England Patriots.

The contracts for receiver Brandon Stokley and linebacker Cornell Brown expired at midnight, but both unrestricted free agents said yesterday that they would like to return to the Ravens. Stokley, a fourth-round draft pick by the Ravens in 1999, has caught 60 passes over four injury-marred seasons. He has always had the flair for producing in the clutch, beating New York Giants cornerback Jason Sehorn for the Ravens' first touchdown in Super Bowl XXXV and ending the Ravens' five-game touchdown drought in 2000 on his second career catch.
