Jimmy Smith: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)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.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)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 were returned negative, and his injury is not considered serious. Locked in as a starter, he's 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.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)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.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Smith's first two years have mostly been a major disappointment, but he came up with two huge plays in the final minutes of the Super Bowl and will try to build off that momentum. He'll compete against Corey Graham for a starting job in training camp, and Graham is probably the favorite, despite not having Smith's first-round pedgiree.
Smith has premier talent, and has been manning one of the starting corner spots in training camp as a rookie. As long as he keeps his head straight, he could hold onto the spot all season.
