Jimmy Smith DB BAL 2 Days

Smith had two tackles (both solo) and two passes defensed in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Falcons.

One of the passes defensed will haunt him, as Smith dropped a potential pick-six that couldn't have been an easier catch. Outside of his eight passes defensed, Smith hasn't done much from a statistical standpoint this season, as opposing quarterbacks have wisely decided to test Baltimore's other defensive backs. If fellow cornerback Lardarius Webb can get back to his past form, Smith might see a few more looks in his own direction.

Smith (chest) is set to play Sunday against the Bengals, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Smith suffered a chest contusion against the Cowboys back on Aug.16, but he noted Wednesday that he is "absolutely fine" at this stage, a notion supported by the fact that he is not listed on the Ravens' first injury report in advance of Week 1.

Smith (chest) returned to practice on a limited basis Saturday, The Baltimore Sun reports.

The same goes for fellow starting cornerback Lardarius Webb (back), who seems to be in more danger than Smith when it comes to potentially missing Week 1. Projected No. 3 corner Asa Jackson (ankle) also returned from an injury to practice Saturday, as the Ravens are quite banged up at a position where they lack depth. Should any of the aforementioned three corners miss Week 1, Chykie Brown, Dominique Franks and/or Derek Cox could be asked to step into bigger roles. There isn't much IDP appeal here, but Smith and Webb could both be worth a look if they're healthy to start the season.

Smith (chest) will not play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Redskins, the Baltimore Post reports.

Smith bruised his chest during last weekend's exhibition outing and will sit out Saturday's game, as the Ravens look to preserve their starting cornerback for the regular season. With Lardarius Webb (back) and Asa Jackson (ankle) also banged-up, Baltimore has no reason to risk further damage by playing Smith in a relatively meaningless game.

Smith (chest) will likely play in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins, The Ravens' official website reports.

Though he coughed up blood after getting hurt during the last exhibition game, Smith seems to have avoided a serious injury. Of the Ravens' starting cornerbacks, Lardarius Webb (back) is in much greater danger of missing Week 1 against the Bengals.

Smith (chest) did not practice Monday, ESPN.com reports.

Smith bruised his chest after landing hard on his back during Saturday's preseason game in Dallas. Following that spill, the cornerback was seen spitting blood on the field. Fortunately, X-rays on Smith's chest returned negative and his injury is not considered serious. Locked in as a starter, Smith is afforded the luxury of resting until he's back to full health. As such, it wouldn't be surprising if Smith missed Saturday's next exhibition outing to ensure he's in top shape as the regular season approaches.

Smith's chest injury is not considered serious, the Ravens' official website reports.

That's good news for the Ravens, who were already thin at cornerback before accounting for injuries to top corner Lardarius Webb (back) and likely nickelback Asa Jackson (ankle). While the team has generally been optimistic about all the injuries, Webb has been dealing with his issue for nearly a month, and Jackson was seen in a walking boot Saturday night. Smith, who is locked in as a starter, seems to be in the least danger of the trio. Though he doesn't have the best ball skills and isn't a major presence defending the run, Smith figures to be an every-down player, and could thus be a useful IDP.

Smith left Saturday's preseason game with a chest injury, and X-rays came back negative, The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports.

After landing awkwardly while trying to break up a pass, Smith went to the locker room for X-rays. The Ravens are already thin at cornerback, as the team lacks proven depth behind Smith and Lardarius Webb (back), the latter of whom has yet to play this preseason. Smith's negative X-ray is an excellent sign for the Ravens, but the team is still in a precarious position at cornerback. In addition to Webb and Smith, projected No. 3 corner Asa Jackson missed Saturday's game with a foot injury.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith is not expected to face discipline from the NFL following his Saturday night arrest.

Smith reportedly refused to back away from a woman who was overdosing at a bar and was charged with a misdemeanor peace disturbance. It may not even count as an offense against the personal conduct policy. Smith will line up across from Lardarius Webb when the Ravens host the Bengals Week 1.

Towson (MD) police allege Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was attending to a woman who had overdosed on cocaine before his Saturday night arrest.

Smith was "trying to help" the woman, who ODed at a Towson bar. He "disobeyed orders" when medics arrived. After numerous expletives, Smith "played the 'I'm Jimmy Smith. I play for the Ravens' card," and told police "You're only doing this so you can get on the news," according to Baltimore reporter Paul Gessler. Smith has only been charged with a misdemeanor peace disturbance.
