Wide receiver Brandon Stokley didn't catch any passes, but he saw some time in the slot with the Ravens' first-team offense against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday night, less than a week after signing with Baltimore.
The Ravens signed Stokley last weekend to add competition for playing time in the slot.
Stokley said he felt rusty earlier this week, but he looks to be in good shape, looks to be moving well and made some plays out of the slot with the first-team during practice Monday and Tuesday.
He was on the field for seven plays Thursday night, according to Pro Football Focus.
"The idea was to get him five to eight plays, mostly in third-down situations," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. "He might've had a few more than that, I'm not sure. But, that was the idea going in. He's in great shape. He's really smart. He picks things up quickly. So, [I'm] looking forward to seeing the tape and seeing how he did."
Stokley is 37, but he had 45 catches for 544 yards and five touchdowns out of the slot for the Denver Broncos last season.
The slot position is an area of concern for the Ravens with Anquan Boldin now in San Francisco and Dennis Pitta sidelined for the foreseeable future by a serious hip injury.
