The Ravens reached an injury settlement with third-year wide receiver Michael Campanaro, which potentially could result in the former River Hill standout returning to the team in the second half of the season, according to a source.
Campanaro, a 2014 seventh-round pick out of Wake Forest, sustained a significant calf injury late in training camp that resulted in the Ravens placing him on injured reserve as part of their moves to get down to a 53-man roster.
The injury settlement is for six weeks, and then Campanaro would have to wait an additional three weeks to rejoin the Ravens, according to NFL rules. He would be eligible to return to the Ravens following Week 9.
Campanaro, 25, is expected to be sidelined with the injury for an extended period. An injury to his calf also knocked him out for much of the Ravens' offseason workout program.
The 5-foot-9 and 191-pound receiver and kick returner has been limited to eight games with the team over his first two NFL seasons because of myriad injuries.
After putting Campanaro on injured reserve and cutting rookie Keenan Reynolds, the Ravens signed veteran Devin Hester to be their primary return man.
