OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have activated running back Danny Woodhead from the injured reserve-designated for return list.

He is eligible to play in Sunday’s game against Green Bay.

Woodhead hasn’t played since suffering a hamstring injury during the opening drive of the season opener against Cincinnati.

The nine-year veteran accounted for 37 yards on that possession, and his return could enhance an offense that has struggled for much of the season.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said: “I think you got a little taste of Danny the first week.”

Baltimore signed Woodhead as a free agent during the offseason, mostly because he provides the team with a quality target out of the backfield.

To make room for Woodhead on the 53-man roster, the Ravens on Saturday waived tight end Gavin Escobar.
