Ravens receiver Torrey Smith, a rookie who made quite an impact in 2011, could have made an even greater impact if he hadn’t played the entire season with a groin problem that turned out to be a hernia.
Appearing on Tuesday’s PFT Live, Smith said that he has fully recovered from February hernia surgery. He also explained that it wasn’t a “double hernia” (as coach John Harbaugh has said), but one hernia with multiple tears in the groin muscle.
Smith said he’s ready for the offseason program, and that he was able to play last month in a charity basketball game presented in part his foundation.
Smith gives the Ravens something they need — a true deep threat who can stretch the field deep. Given the way he played with a hernia, the sky could be the limit when he’s healthy.
