Smith (knee) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Cardinals.
Considering the Ravens contemplated placing Smith on injured reserve, it's not surprising that he won't play Week 2. The Ravens' secondary is depleted enough with Smith out, and Marlon Humphrey (back) is also listed as questionable. Expect Brandon Carr and Anthony Averett to both have large roles regardless of Humphrey's health.
Smith (knee) could be placed on IR with a designated to return label, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Coach John Harbaugh referred to Smith's chances of hitting IR as possible but not probable. The starting cornerback suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday's win over Miami and appears likely to miss a few weeks, but he's expected to retake the field during the regular season. In any case, Brandon Carr and Anthony Averett both stand to see increased snaps while Smith is sidelined.
Smith's MRI showed he has a sprained MCL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
There was fear Smith may have suffered a serious injury, so a sprain is favorable news. There isn't a timeline for when Smith will be back into game form, but he'll need a quick recovery to be ready for Week 2's game versus the Cardinals. If Smith can't go, Brandon Carr and Anthony Averett are both expected to see an increase in snaps during his absence.
Coach John Harbaugh said Smith doesn't have a season-ending knee injury but will have an MRI on Monday, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Smith left in the first quarter of the season opener and didn't return. Although he's expected to return at some point this season, Monday's MRI will determine when that will be. This could be a major loss for the team's secondary, as Smith is the team's No. 2 corner. Expect Anthony Averett and Brandon Carr to see an uptick in usage if Smith sits out Week 2 versus the Cardinals.
Smith suffered a right knee injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
It's unclear how Smith picked up the injury, but it's forced him to miss plays to seek further attention. As long as he's sidelined, Brandon Carr and Cyrus Jones would be candidates to receive an increase in snaps.
