Even though he was cut at the end of the preseason, the Ravens have decided to bring back Toussaint to the 53-man roster, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. Earlier on Saturday, the Ravens announced that cornerback Derek Cox had been released.

Linebacker Josh Bynes seemed to be a realistic option to bring back up, making Toussaint's addition a bit of a surprise. The Ravens already have Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro available for the game. He had 103 yards on 17 carries in that Week 4 preseason game against the Saints.
The Ravens could be planning a run-heavy attack. But Toussaint may also be someone the Ravens could look at for special teams. However, it's unknown if he'll be active on the 46-man roster at this time.
