Doss rejoins the team, Oher returns to practice

The Ravens placed rookie wide receiver Aaron Mellette on injured reserve Wednesday with a knee injury.

Mellette is a seventh-round pick from Elon. He had a strong preseason and made the team, but Mellette did not dress for the season opener in Denver. With Jacoby Jones (knee injury) expected to miss four-to-six weeks, the Ravens may only dress four wide receivers again for Sunday’s game against the Browns – Marlon Brown, Tandon Doss, Brandon Stokley, and Torrey Smith. Deonte Thompson is still recovering from an ankle injury, while Gerrard Sheppard is on the practice squad.
