Ravens activate Dez Bryant ahead of Week 11

His second game on the active roster since being signed

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday afternoon, the Ravens activated WR Dez Bryant off of the practice squad for Sunday’s game against the Titans.

This will be Bryant’s second game on the active roster since being signed in October. The 31-year-old veteran saw two snaps, running one route, when he was activated against the Indianapolis Colts in the Ravens Week 9 victory.

Bryant has stayed on track since then, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman:

Bryant becoming a factor as an outside wide receiver would be a welcome sight, as the Ravens current logjam of slot-type receivers have struggled to generate production outside. Bryant, the Cowboys franchise leader in touchdowns, has been actively positive on social media while working his way into the lineup.

With Nick Boyle suffering a season ending injury and being placed on the IR, Bryant will certainly have an opportunity to work his way into the offense over the next few weeks.

Only four Ravens wide receivers have caught a pass in 2020. Bryant has an opportunity to add to a group only averaging only 9.4 receptions by wide receivers per game. Marquise Brown is the only receiver with over 30 receptions (32).
