Torrey Smith WR BAL 9 Days

Smith is day-to-day with a knee sprain.

The status of Smith, whose knee flared up before Sunday's game against the Dolphins, thus remains cloudy as this weekend's tilt against the Jaguars approaches. With Smith hampered in Week 14, Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown both saw added work in the Baltimore passing offense, a scenario that could well be repeated this weekend if Smith's knee fails to respond as hoped.

Smith, whose right knee swelled up during pre-game warmups, did not see a target in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, ESPN.com reports.

Per the Baltimore Sun, the wideout -- who saw limited snaps Sunday, ended up being more of a decoy than a target, which led to added opportunities for teammates Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken. Given that Smith's knee issue flared up Sunday, his status for this coming weekend's game against the Jaguars will be worth monitoring closely once the Ravens' practice slate resumes.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said after Sunday's win over the Dolphins that Smith's knee swelled up during pregame warmups, but the team had already activated him, which is why was not ruled out, according to Clifton Brown of CSN Mid-Atlantic.

With Smith's knee keeping him on the sideline, Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken both got plenty of targets from quarterback Joe Flacco, catching a combined 13 passes on 18 targets for 135 yards and two touchdowns. Smith suffered the injury last Sunday against the Chargers, and practiced fully Friday, though he reportedly did not look comfortable in warmups, which was then confirmed by Harbaugh. It was a very tough hit for fantasy owners, who at least expected him to be on the field after not being made inactive. Up next is a Week 15 matchup against a Jaguars defense allowing the ninth-most receiving yards per game this season, though the health of Smith's knee is of more importance.

Though Smith (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun suggests that the wideout didn't look comfortable in pre-game warmups.

While Smith is evidently in line to give it a go Sunday, ESPN's Jamison Hensley notes, along with Zrebiec, that the wideout had a noticeable limp during warmups. If Smith ends up being limited at all Sunday, Hensley suggests that Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken could potentially see added work in the Ravens' offense.

Smith (right knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Smith, who is in uniform, as expected, after returning to practice Friday, should see his share of targets Sunday, assuming no setbacks with his knee. The wideout has notched at least one touchdown in five of his past seven games, including two last weekend in the Ravens' loss to the Chargers, while catching six passes for 65 yards.

Smith (right knee) practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN.com reports.

Smith sat out practice both Thursday and Friday, but the probable designation appears to leave little doubt with regard to the wideout's availability for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

Smith (knee) returned to practice Friday, the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports.

Smith has been confident all week that he'll be fine for Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins, and Friday's return to practice seems to confirm that optimism. We'll update you again once Baltimore releases the official injury designations for the game.

Smith indicated Thursday that his right knee has improved with rest and treatment over the past few days, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Moreover, in his words, Smith suggested that the the only way he won't play Sunday against the Dolphins "is if I need crutches." While his optimism is encouraging, a return to practice Friday -- in any capacity -- would provide us with more concrete confidence with regard to the wideout's status for Sunday's 1:00 ET tilt.

Smith (right knee) did not practice Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Smith's level of practice participation Friday will thus be telling with regard to his Week 14 status, though if the wideout enters the weekend with any sort of uncertainty surrounding his availability, fortunately the Ravens kick off against the Dolphins at 1:00 ET on Sunday.

Smith (right knee) missed practice Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Coach John Harbaugh suggested Monday that Smith isn't dealing with a serious injury, but the wideout's absence from practice Wednesday makes his status worth following as Sunday's game against the Dolphins approaches. We'll revisit Smith's status no later than Thursday, once the Ravens return to practice.
