Ravens’ Jimmy Smith To Miss Rest Of Season
The Baltimore Ravens will be without cornerback Jimmy Smith for the rest of the season, a crushing blow to the Ravens’ defense.
Smith suffered a season-ending left Achilles injury in Sunday’s 44-20 win over the Detroit Lions.
“That’s tough,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said (h/t ESPN). “He will be out for the rest of the year.”
“The secondary is the strength of our team,” Baltimore safety Eric Weddle said. “So, we’re not going to sit back and be sorry for ourselves.”
“He has played at an All-Pro level this year,” Harbaugh said. “[But] we have a lot of depth. We have a lot of good, young players. We’ll step up, and we’ll still play at a really high level in the secondary. I’m really confident in that.”
Ravens first-round pick Marlon Humphrey replaced Smith and struggled, giving up two touchdowns. Despite the bad game, Humphrey is expected to take on a bigger role in Smith’s absence.
