The Sports Xchange

The Baltimore Ravens elevated wide receiver and return specialist Jeremy Ross from their practice squad to the 53-man roster on Saturday.

To make room for Ross, the Ravens waived defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi.

Ross has played in 34 games (15 starts) in his four-year NFL career. The 6-foot, 215-pounder has 30 receptions for 381 yards and two touchdowns. He also owns 650 yards and one touchdown on 53 punt returns, and 1,184 yards and one touchdown on 47 kickoff returns.

While playing for the Detroit Lions in 2013, Ross was the NFL’s only player to score a touchdown by reception, punt return and kickoff return that season.

Ross originally signed with New England as an undrafted free agent in 2011. He also played for Indianapolis (2011-12), Green Bay (2012-13) and Detroit (2013-14) prior to joining Baltimore’s practice squad on Sept. 8.
