Mellette has been cleared by his doctors to run following a knee injury.

After a productive preseason, rookie receiver Aaron Mellette was forced to sit out the 2013 regular season after tearing cartilage in his knee.

Following the first week of the regular season, the seventh-round draft pick out of Elon spent the rest of the year on injured reserve and was forced to watch the offense from afar. However, Mellette received some good news this week as he looks to enter next season's rotation at the position.



In four preseason games this past year, Mellette caught nine passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns. He and Marlon Brown became quick friends in the locker room and seemed poised to help this team early on. Brown was able to do so, but the knee injury slowed Mellette down.

Now that he can work on football related activities, Mellette will look to get back on track to help this Ravens offense in 2014.
