The fastest of the Ravens' wideouts, Donté Stallworth figured to be Baltimore's No. 3 receiver before suffering a foot injury in the preseason. Stallworth, who missed seven games with the injury, has returned to the lineup, and he's poised to have a niche in the offense as a field-stretching threat in the second half of the season, the way we hear it. Stallworth made a key contribution in the Week 10 loss at Atlanta, taking a pair of reverses for 15 and 19 yards against a Falcons defense charging hard up the field. The lion's share of the passes in the Ravens' offense will go to WRs Anquan Boldin and Derrick Mason and TE Todd Heap — note that No. 3 WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh, primarily a short and intermediate receiving threat, had 13 receptions in his first nine games out of 32 targets, according to STATS Inc. — and Stallworth was not targeted as a receiver in his first two games back, but he certainly made an impact as a runner, a role he has infrequently played throughout his pro career despite his outstanding speed.
