Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who was released by the team last week, will start the final seven games of the regular season in his hometown of Indianapolis.
Marshall will take on the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Colts’ home field, on Oct. 5, according to ESPN.
The Ravens released Marshall earlier this week.
The 30-year-old Marshall caught 81 passes for 1,003 yards and eight touchdowns last season, including an NFL-best 10 touchdowns on the ground.
He played the past three seasons for the Houston Texans, who traded for Marshall last month.
“I was excited to see him start the last eight games,” said Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh.
“We’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.
It’s really good to have him back.”
Marshall was one of three rookies to make the 53-man roster for the Ravens.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith is expected to make his debut for the team, and wide receiver Kyle Williams is expected in his second preseason game.
The Colts released Williams after the 2015 season.
The team also announced the release of safety Malik Hooker, cornerback Jerraud Powers and linebacker Zach Kerr.
Harbaugh said the team is evaluating all its options, including drafting a new quarterback.
“It’s all about building a great team, we want to be better than we were last year,” Harbaugh said.
“And we know that if we want the chance to be a playoff team next year, we have to be at the forefront of doing that.
So we’re going to make sure that we’ve got a great year in front of us.”
