Looking to revive his career in Baltimore, Donte Stallworth signed on with the Ravens this off season as a number three or four receiver. Unfortunately, he’s going to have to wait another eight weeks to get back on the playing field, as he suffered a broken foot in last night’s preseason victory over the New York Giants.
His competition in training camp this season, Mark Clayton, seemed to really step up in his fourth NFL season securing that number three role for the Ravens before Stallworth went down an injury. In last night’s 24-10 win, Clayton caught one pass for 20 yards and seemed to be showcased by Baltimore throughout the other three preseason games.
Clayton also suffered a mild concussion in the game on an illegal hit by Giants safety Antrel Rolle. Clayton told NationalFootballPost.com’s Aaron Wilson, “”I feel good, but my neck is sore,” he said. “Other than that, I’m fine. I’m okay.”
Stallworth’s roll in Baltimore’s offense would probably have been limited with the depth at wide receiver this season, but he did prove to be an asset as in the return game. He returned three punts for thirty yards before his injury. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he hopes to see Stallworth after the Ravens bye week at the end of October.
