Ravens Promote Cornerback Khalil Dorsey to 53-Man Roster


The Ravens' 16-year streak of having an undrafted rookie make the initial 53-man roster ended this year, but cornerback Khalil Dorsey cracked the squad in Week 5.

The Ravens moved cornerback Dorsey from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Friday afternoon, filling the empty spot from the release of rookie seventh-round safety Geno Stone. Stone returned to the Ravens' practice squad after clearing waivers.

The Ravens had used the practice squad exemption to bring Dorsey up to the gameday roster the past two weeks, exhausting his eligibility for such a move. They had to make room on the 53-man roster for him. Baltimore needed another cornerback after the season-ending injury to Tavon Young in Week 2.

Dorsey is a 5-foot-9 cornerback from Northern Arizona who played four defensive snaps against Washington and made one tackle. He has also played on special teams the past two weeks. Stone had yet to be activated to the gameday roster.

"Geno is definitely going to play. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll play," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "This is a unique year that way. We'll continue to prepare Geno to play."
