Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Kamar Aiken has gone from a journeyman wide receiver to one of the more consistent ones in the league recently.

Since stepping into the Ravens' No. 1 receiver role, Aiken has had at least five receptions and 50 yards in each of his last four games. Only Julio Jones (11 games) and Allen Robinson (seven) have longer active streaks.

"It definitely shows that all the hard work pays off," quarterback Matt Schaub said. "All these years, he has just kept coming to practice, kept coming to work and just continuing to strive to do the best that he can and be perfect on his routes and understand what the quarterback is thinking, coverages and his subtle route adjustment. Kamar does run crisp routes, and he doesn’t confuse the quarterback with his breaks, and he has shown the ability to have strong hands and go attack the football and not wait on the football. You’ve got to love that as quarterback.”

Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 13. It appears that Seferian-Jenkins will finally make his return in Week 13. It’s a tasty matchup against the Falcons (#30 in TE aFPA), but we’re always leery about starting players coming off of long absences. He’s been practicing for a while, so his timing and conditioning should be fine.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (right quadricep, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. Shayne Graham will continue to fill-in for Bryant.

The Atlanta Falcons activated wide receiver/return specialist Devin Hester from injured reserve Friday and placed wide receiver Leonard Hankerson on season-ending IR.

The move with Hester was expected, as he is set to make his season debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He missed the first 11 games after tearing two ligaments in his right big toe during the preseason.

As for Hankerson, he had been battling a hamstring strain for a while and aggravated it two games ago against the Indianapolis Colts. He had missed three games because of the injury.
