It appears the concussion Brandon Stokley sustained on Sunday against the Vikings could cost him the remainder of the season.

According to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, Stokley is probably headed to the injured reserve list after getting knocked out of the Ravens' 29-26 win two days ago.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh addressed Stokley's injury during his Monday press conference, to which he seemed concern about his status for the final three games of the regular season.

"We'll have to see how it shakes out," Harbaugh said. "Unfortunately, he's had a number of those in his career, so it could be problematic for us. We'll have to see in the next 24 hours or so."

The Ravens have two receivers on the practice squad in Gerrard Sheppard and Kamar Aiken that could be candidates to fill the spots. There's always the option of bringing back tight end Billy Bajema or running back Bernard Scott, too.

Then there's the chance Baltimore fills the spot with someone else. We'll likely know more in the coming days.
