Donte' Stallworth got on his Twitter account last night to update all his fans on his health status, and revealed that his surgery to repair his broken left foot went well.
"The surgery was successful, thank you all for your prayers," Stallworth wrote. "Love you much... Now back on the grind, I'll be back SOON!!!"
The veteran wide receiver had a screw put into the foot during the procedure. He's expected to be out around two months.
With Stallworth sidelined, the Ravens will now have a difficult decision to make regarding the number of wide receivers they keep on their 53-man roster.
Stallworth cannot be placed on the reserve Physically Unable to Perform list (a player must start training camp on active PUP and remain on that list throughout up until roster cuts to qualify for reserve PUP), so the Ravens will have to carry him on the roster even though he will miss about half the season.
The thinking originally was that the Ravens would carry five receivers, but could Stallworth's injury force them to reconsider that strategy? Is keeping six receivers now a possibility?
"I think it's a possibility," Harbaugh said. "I think we have to sit down and figure that out over the next five days - exactly how many players we want to carry at certain positions. Does that mean we carry another wide receiver? Do we feel like we have enough wide receivers and tight ends to go ahead and keep it at the same number?"
"Obviously, Donte' is going to be out for a number of weeks. He will be back, so he will be on our team. We'll get him back, and he'll have a great year when he gets back, I'm sure. That's something we've got to figure out."
Anquan Boldin, Derrick Mason, Mark Clayton and Stallworth are locks for roster spots at this point.
If the Ravens do opt to keep six wide receivers, they would pick two out of a group of Demetrius Williams, Marcus Smith and David Reed.
If they stick with the previous plan and decide to only keep five wideouts, two of those three would be left looking for work elsewhere.
