The Ravens have claimed Chargers defensive end Lawrence Guy off waivers, according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. To make room, Baltimore has released Deonte Thompson for the second time in five days.
The signing could be a sign that the Ravens don’t feel great about the knee injuries plaguing Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan. Canty didn’t practice Wednesday and Jernigans’ meniscus issue kept him from playing against the Browns over the weekend. Guy, 24, has played in three games this season with no statistics registered. In 10 games last season, the 6’4″, 318-pounder had 16 tackles. A former Arizona State player and Las Vegas native who has also played for the Colts and Packers, Guy has 38 career tackles, one sack, and four pass deflections.
Thompson was inactive for the first two games, then released last prior to the Ravens’ 23-21 win over the Browns. Thompson was re-signed yesterday when the Ravens cut running back Fitzgerald Toussaint but his stay was short-lived.
