 OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -The Baltimore Ravens placed wide receiver Demetrius Williams on injured reserve Wednesday and signed Terrance Copper, who was cut earlier this month by the New Orleans Saints.
Williams has been bothered since June by a bone spur around his left Achilles' tendon. Although he caught a 70-yard touchdown pass Sunday against Oakland, the third-year wideout didn't practice last week and has long been operating at less than 100 percent.
``We hoped it would improve and he could get through the season, but it just isn't getting any better,'' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
Harbaugh said Williams visited a surgeon in Los Angeles who recommended surgery ``immediately.''
Williams has 13 catches for 180 yards this season.
nd five touchdowns. He also had 15 tackles on special teams and was used occasionally to return kickoffs.
``We feel like he's the best guy for us,'' Harbaugh said. ``He's been a return guy pretty much his whole career and in college, and he's been a really solid special teams guy throughout his career. So he will contribute some way.''
Cornerback Chris McAlister has gotten a second opinion on his ailing knee, and Harbaugh acknowledged the two-time Pro Bowler could be headed for injured reserve.
McAlister participated in only eight plays two weeks ago in Miami and was on the inactive list Sunday against Oakland.
``We're really hopeful that he'll play for us this year,'' Harbaugh said. ``We should know by the end of the week.''
Falcons
Wayne Gandy is back for a second stint with the Atlanta.
The Falcons signed Gandy, a former starting offensive tackle, on Wednesday, one day after the team said rookie left tackle Sam Baker will see two specialists for a hip injury and miss Sunday's game at Oakland.
Todd Weiner, who started for Baker at left tackle in last week's loss to Philadelphia before leaving the game with a sore knee, said Wednesday he doesn't know if he'll be able to play at Oakland.

The Falcons also released tight end Jason Rader, released defensive tackle Sean Conover from the practice squad and signed defensive tackle J'Vonne Parker to the practice squad.
