Rookie safety Omar Brown has rejoined the Ravens' practice squad after being cut last week and subsequently trying out for the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound defensive back was released when the Ravens signed quarterback Dennis Dixon to the practice squad prior to a 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Another spot opened up when the Ravens placed safety Christian Thompson on injured reserve with a minor knee injury and elevated safety Anthony Levine to the active roster from the practice squad.

Brown had a strong preseason, intercepting one pass and was constantly around the football despite a lack of ideal stopwatch speed.

Brown ran the 40-yard dash in a relatively pedestrian 4.7 seconds coming out of Marshall.

Brown had 288 career tackles, nine interceptions, 29 pass defelctions, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery as an All-Conference USA selection for the Thundering Herd.
