Donte' Stallworth hasn't played in an NFL game since Dec. 28, 2008 while with the Browns, but he may be making his return to the field next week.

The Ravens' receiver could play this week vs. the Dolphins, according to the Carroll County (Md.) Times. Stallworth broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot returning a punt in the preseason and has been rehabbing since, missing the team's first seven games.

"It will probably be a game-time decision," Stallworth told the paper. "As of right now, it's still going to be a little sore after practicing today. It's a little sore right now. The main thing is making sure I get treatment on it and do what I'm supposed to be doing.

"Today was my first real practice. I did a little bit last week, not too much. By the end of the week, I should be feeling pretty good and feeling good enough to play."

Stallworth was suspended for the 2009 season following a DUI manslaughter charge in March 2009. The case was settled out of court and there was no lawsuit against the player.

The way we see it

It's been a while since Stallworth has seen the field, but before his suspension and injury, the receiver had electrifying speed and was one of the NFL's top deep threats. He's averaged nearly 15 yards a catch in his career and could be a dangerous weapon in a Baltimore attack that lacks a true speed receiver.
