The Ravens are re-signing veteran cornerback Dominique Franks, according to a source.
The Ravens need depth at the position with Asa Jackson sidelined for several weeks with a severely sprained toe injury. Jackson could be out for six to eight weeks, according to a source.
Jackson remains on the roster at this time, but coach John Harbaugh said the team is considering whether to place him on the short-term injured reserve. If the Ravens do that, Jackson will miss at least eight games.
Franks was released by the Ravens in the final major roster cutdown before the season.
Franks was on his way to try out for the Detroit Lions, who are working out cornerbacks Curtis Marsh and Ellis Lankster today, when the Ravens called. Franks arrived in Baltimore on Monday night.
