Smith secured six passes (10 targets) for 53 yards against the Dolphins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Joe Flacco threw the ball 46 times Sunday, with 10 of those going in Smith's direction. Smith's 10 targets were his most since Week 4, though he's remained an effective playmaker throughout the season. The 37-year-old is second on the team in receiving touchdowns (three) and receiving yards (536), behind only speedster Mike Wallace in both categories. Smith will try to keep it going against the Patriots next Monday night.

Smith hauled in all four of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

It was a muted performance from Smith on Sunday as he was held in check by Cincinnati's Dre Kirkpatrick. Smith was blanketed, drawing just four targets from quarterback Joe Flacco, which marks his lowest total in that category in any full game this season. Perhaps the most frustrating part of Smith's four targets is that he was on the field for nearly every offensive snap. He'll have the tough task of solving a Miami defense that ranks eighth in the league in QB rating allowed Sunday.

Smith caught eight of nine targets for 99 yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was the second most-targeted Raven on Sunday and helped keep the game close with a five-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter. He netted his second-highest yardage output of the season and found the end zone for the second straight game after scoring just once in his first six. Smith retains fantasy value as Joe Flacco's go-to option and should be heavily involved again next week against the Bengals.

Smith (ankle) brought in five of seven targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-7 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran receiver tied for second on the Ravens in receptions while also equaling his second-best total in that category on the season. His 11-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter was only his second of the campaign, with both having come in the last four games. Smith will look to play a pivotal role once again in a Week 11 showdown against the Cowboys.

Smith (ankle) was not listed on Monday's practice participation/injury report.

EDGE Analysis

This nugget appears to be a pretty clear indication that Smith avoided any setbacks in his return to action in Sunday's win over the Steelers. The veteran wideout is thus on track to remain in the mix for Thursday night's game against the Browns after seeing action on 58 out of a possible 70 snaps on offense for the Ravens in Week 9.

Smith (ankle) caught four of seven targets for 47 yards, and added a successful two-point conversion in Sunday's 21-14 win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Smith missed the last two games prior to the Week 8 bye due to his ankle injury, but led the team in targets in his return. He has found pay dirt only once all year, as quarterback Joe Flacco has tossed only six touchdowns. Thursday night offers a golden opportunity to add to that total, though, as the winless Browns will be in town.

Smith (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Smith, who last suited up on Oct. 9, will tough it out Sunday and is thus a candidate to see his share of targets in the Ravens' Week 9 offense, in the absence of any setbacks with his balky ankle.

Smith (ankle) is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Smith, who is officially listed as questionable, has missed the last two games due to the injury, and while he will need to show he's healthy enough to play in a pre-game warmup, the team is expecting him to give it a go.

Smith (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith already missed two games prior to a Week 8 bye, and it's not entirely clear that the extra rest will be enough to do the trick. He did manage to increase his practice participation each day this week, going from a DNP on Wednesday to a limited showing Thursday, and then capping things off with a full practice Friday. However, Smith may have been a full participant in name only, as multiple reporters made note of his absence from the portion or Friday's practice that was open to media. His availability may not be known until the Ravens release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoffs.

Smith (ankle) was not on the field for the portion of Friday's practice that was open to the media, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith also missed the open part of Thursday's practice, but he was still listed as a limited participant on the injury report. He'll presumably be listed as limited or absent on the Friday report, with a 'questionable' status likely representing his best-case scenario. If Smith ultimately misses Sunday's game against the Steelers, Mike Wallace will be well positioned to draw double-digit targets for the third time in a span of four games. Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken and Chris Moore would take on Smith's usual snaps, just as they did in the last two games prior to the team's Week 8 bye.
