OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As if the Ravens weren’t banged up enough over the first 10 days of training camp, cornerback Jimmy Smith became the latest addition to the list of walking wounded during Thursday’s practice.

Smith was covering wide receiver Jacoby Jones in a team drill when he went down in pain. It initially appeared to be some form of a leg injury, but defensive coordinator Dean Pees said after practice the second-year corner may have been dealing with a back injury.

“I don’t know,” defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. “I’d have to go in and find out afterwards. He just went down. I know he grabbed his back. That’s all I saw. I don’t even know any extent of it.”

The 2011 first-round pick missed four games last season with a left ankle injury he suffered in the season-opening win over Pittsburgh. The injury prevented Smith from firmly establishing himself in the secondary as Cary Williams and Lardarius Webb emerged as the starting cornerbacks.

The Colorado product left Saturday’s practice early due to a shoulder bruise but returned to the practice field on Monday after the team was given the day off on Sunday.
