    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?

    The one thing we don't know is if he will catch the ball when the bullets are flying. We've seen it before; great practice player, and then in the game, can't catch.

    Hopefully this is not the case with Deonte, but we've had our hearts broken too many times for me to get particularly jacked about him at this point.

    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?

    You can expect Thompson to be worked in slowly. He might start off with Kick Return duties, along with limited snaps in the slot. Ideally, you want him to grow into a role where he shares snaps from the slot with Stokely, and eventually takes the majority of them.

    If he proves himself good enough, the Ravens could have something unique on their hands, because that would mean he and Brown would be capable of playing inside and out. With Torrey running a larger variety of routes this year and with good success, Caldwell could really do some mixing and matching.

    However, that sort of thing takes a great deal of cohesiveness and it would take a lot of games to get that sort of thing going strong enough.

    My limited excitement about Thompson is based on the above, plus the Annapolis practice. I know - a practice. But, I saw Thompson consistently find those soft spots in the underneath zone, and Joe (they had him running with the 1s) was finding him, too. He also seemed prepared after catching the ball to make at least the first DB to get to him whiff. He looked like he had a much better idea of what he was doing than when I saw him last summer, like he'd come to understand that speed isn't the only way to get open.

    Of course, this was an intra-squad practice. But, with the injuries and the AARP club, I'm willing to see the kid in a game.

    If Deonte lives up to the hype the team was giving him in training camp, the thing that excites me is having a second receiver who can break it deep. With Torrey running more possession type routes and Jacoby out, nobody is pushing the safeties deep. I'm betting that CBs are getting deep help with Torry this year, so having a second speedster increases the chances that one of them will be straight man-on-man.

    After practicing yesterday, Thompson did not practice today. Not a good sign for Sunday, just hope he didn't have a setback.

    Hopefully he'll be ready after this week, doesn't sound good for the Texans.

    Deonte Thompson (foot) missed practice today after practicing on a limited basis yesterday
    Looks like DT was actually back in the tub today. Wasn't expecting to see him vs. HOU, but this isn't encouraging at all.

    Not good at all. You can't make plays from the tub.

    Not true...my sister-in-law called while she was soaking in the tub after a hard day of (non) work, and asked my wife to bring over pizza and beer for dinner. My wife said, "OK, Bc will buy it, and we'll drive over to your place." S-I-L replied, "Bring napkins, silverware, and a side-salad too. Oh, and I like pepperoni on my pizza." ... Bc
