The Ravens are planning Monday to re-sign wide receiver/kick returner Michael Campanaro, who was waived from the team with an injury settlement on Sept. 13.
Per league rules, the Ravens had to wait eight weeks before re-signing a player who they let go via an injury settlement. Monday is the first day they're able to sign Campanaro. Now healthy, Campanaro could play Thursday against the Cleveland Browns depending on how practice goes early this week.
The former River Hill standout hurt his quadriceps during the Ravens' offseason workout program. He returned in time for training camp, but he aggravated the injury late in the preseason and was put on injured reserve.
Campanaro rehabbed the injury and feels ready to contribute to the Ravens, who could use the wide receiver's route-running ability and his sure hands both on offense and in the return game. A seventh-round pick by the Ravens in 2014, Campanaro has 12 catches for 137 yards and a touchdown and two rushes for 17 yards and a score while playing eight games for the Ravens in parts of two injury-plagued seasons.
Several teams, including the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos, offered Campanaro an opportunity to work out for them.
