Jimmy Smith suffers groin injury at Ravens practice

Ravens rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith was removed from practice today after suffering a groin injury.

Smith, the Ravens’ first-round draft pick in the draft in April, tweaked his groin while covering rookie wide receiver LaQuan Williams on a crossing route.

Smith didn’t return to the field and was spotted with a bag of ice in his pants. (Or maybe he’s just happy to be in the NFL.)

In other Ravens injury news, center Matt Birk was held out of practice to rest his knee, while guard Ben Grubbs was activated off the physically unable to perform list.

UPDATE: Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth told our friend Aaron Wilson, “Jimmy didn’t tear anything. He should be fine.”

    can we keep posts about training camp injuries to something a little more than tweaking a groin weeks before the season starts?

    “Smith didn’t return to the field and was spotted with a bag of ice in his pants. (Or maybe he’s just happy to be in the NFL.)”

    What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    A lot like Packers Fans, who have been consistently pulling their groins after the Superbowl, they will now have to sit down with a bag of ice in their pants.

    Tweaked a groin covering a rookie WR? Whats going to happen when Mike Wallace comes ripping at him?

    Jimmy Smith already hurt? He is making excuses when Wallace is buring him in week 1 for 2 long td’s in a Steeler’s blowout win over the SOFT RAVENS!

    cromartie wishes he would have pulled his groin muscle.

    According to PFT readers, does this mean Smith has an attitude problem like Michael Crabtree? He got hurt working out, so he’s a diva right?

    I hope Williams makes that team as a starter someday just so the starting WRs can be Anquan and LaQuan
