Thompson was charged with having more than 20 grams of marijuana and drug equipment after a car he was a passenger in was pulled over for driving without headlights.

Deonte Thompson had two catches for 11 yards in Week 5 against Miami.

Thompson played both the slot and on the outside in three-wide sets and finished behind only Torrey Smith with seven targets. He was mostly limited to a situational deep threat role, but managed to a 38-yard pass interference call in the third quarter. Thompson handled kickoff duties and will likely be reduced to special teams when Marlon Brown (hamstring) and Jacoby Jones (knee) return.

Marlon Brown will start opposite Torrey Smith in Week 2, but Thompson could be in line for an expanded role as both a kick returner and situational deep threat.

Ravens WR Deonte Thompson has been diagnosed with a sprained left foot, and will miss Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Coach John Harbaugh insists the injury isn't serious. "We're going to hold him out this game and re-evaluate him on Friday and see where he's at." Thompson had been making a push at No. 3 receiver duties, but this obviously severely hampers his odds. The Ravens are dangerously thin on pass catchers.
