When the Ravens reached an injury settlement with wide receiver Michael Campanaro a little over a month ago, the hope was that the former River Hill standout would get healthy and potentially re-sign with the team for the second half of the season.
There's still a chance that occurs, but both the player and team must wait.
Per league rules, a player that reaches an injury settlement with a team cannot re-sign with that team until after nine weeks. That means Campanaro, who played eight games with the Ravens over the previous two seasons, isn't eligible to return until Nov. 7, the day after the Ravens face the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Campanaro continues to rehabilitate a calf injury that he sustained in the team's offseason workout program. He returned to participate in training camp, but he was never completely healthy, and the team put him on injured reserve as part of the final roster cut down.
Campanaro is currently free to sign with any team, and 15 organizations, including the Steelers, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots, have expressed interest in working him out.
The receiver could fill a need for the Ravens, who have struggled in their return game. Veteran Devin Hester Sr. fumbled in back-to-back weeks, losing one of them, and he missed Sunday's lost to the New York Giants with a thigh injury.
