Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith exits Sunday's loss with foot injury


The most concerning development stemming from the Ravens’ 27-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday may have been the injury to top cornerback Jimmy Smith.
The fourth-year defensive back sustained a sprained left foot on the opening drive of the game and did not return. Smith initially jogged off the field with a pronounced limp before being carted to the locker room for further examination.
The Ravens announced Smith’s return was doubtful late in the first half, but he did not play the rest of the way.
In his absence, the Ravens had only two active cornerbacks in fellow starter Lardarius Webb and veteran Dominique Franks, who was forced into starting duty for the rest of the game. Struggling cornerback Chykie Brown was a healthy inactive for Sunday’s game.
Baltimore will hope Smith is healthy enough to return to action next Sunday as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for an incredible 522 yards and six touchdowns in a win over Indianapolis on Sunday.
Wide receiver Michael Campanaro also left the game with a hamstring injury and didn’t return.
Offensive linemen Eugene Monroe, Kelechi Osemele, and Marshal Yanda and wide receiver Torrey Smith also left the game at various points before returning to action.


  1. I can never tell when Torrey is in the game anyway! He is pretty much worthless (unless they are playing a horrible team like Tampa). Not being a good “route runner” is the definition of lazy, stupid or both. Contrary to Mike Preston’s article, I would not resign him.
