OWINGS MILLS, Md. — On the same day linebacker Ray Lewis returned to the practice field, the Ravens also saw second-year cornerback Jimmy Smith in action for the first time since undergoing sports hernia surgery.
Smith practiced on a limited basis Wednesday in his first on-field activity since before having the surgical procedure on Nov. 15. Coach John Harbaugh said earlier this week he expected the cornerback to increase his level of activity, but it was unclear whether he meant Smith would be on the practice field.
“Jimmy Smith continues to get better, so he will be moving around a little this week,” Harbaugh said on Monday. “We’ll see how that goes.”
The Ravens were without three starters as linebackers Terrell Suggs and Dannell Ellerbe and tight end Ed Dickson did not partake in Wednesday’s practice. Suggs declared himself a “game-time decision” against the Washington Redskins as he tries to play through a torn right biceps.
Ellerbe and Dickson were both given “a chance” to return to action this week after missing last Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Of the two players, Ellerbe is considered to be further along than the Ravens’ starting tight end.
Since Lewis has not yet been placed back on the 53-man roster, he was not listed on Wednesday’s injury report.
Meanwhile, Washington was missing three starters from its Wednesday workout as top cornerback DeAngelo Hall, middle linebacker London Fletcher, and left tackle Trent Williams all sat out.
Both Hall and Fletcher are dealing with ankle injuries but are expected to be ready to play by Sunday.
