Smith (back) made six tackles (five solo) to go with one pass breakup in his return to action Sunday against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

After missing two games due to a back injury, Smith returned to the fold Sunday and was busier than usual, recording a season-high six tackles. Smith is Baltimore's best corner, but that doesn't mean he won't be tested once again when the Ravens head up to Foxborough to take on the Tom Brady led Patriots on Monday.

Smith (back) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Smith hasn't suited up for the team's last two games, but will give it a go Sunday afternoon. The veteran corner will take the field against Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins in search of his first interception of the season. Smith's presence should help the Baltimore secondary contain the likes of Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker, the latter of which is active despite a back injury of his own.

Smith (back) is inactive for Sunday's Week 12 matchup with the Ravens, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Ravens will be without their top corner for a second straight game after Smith was unable to see any involvement in practice this week. Jerraud Powers and Tavon Young picked up most of the snaps in the Week 11 loss to the Cowboys in Smith's absence, but neither player turned in the sort of high-tackle totals necessary to create any intrigue in IDP leagues.

Smith (back) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith missed every practice this week with a back issue. If he is ultimately ruled out, the Ravens will look to Shareece Wright, Tavon Young and Jerraud Powers as their primary cornerbacks.

Smith (leg, back) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith suffered a leg injury in Week 10 against the Browns and has yet to return to game action. If he is unable to go Sunday against the Bengals, expect Jerraud Powers and Tavon Young to see increased snaps at cornerback for the Ravens.

Smith (leg) has been ruled out for the Ravens' Week 11 matchup with the Cowboys on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith only logged a limited session during Friday's practice this week and still seems to be feeling the effects of the leg injury, which he picked up in last Thursday's win over the Browns. Despite the longer recovery time and coach John Harbaugh's initial optimism that Smith would play, the Ravens will have to lean more heavily on backup corners Jerraud Powers, Tavon Young and Chris Lewis-Harris in the secondary.
