Torrey Smith “all right” after limping off field in fourth quarter

While the Ravens were holding on to beat the Browns 23-16 in the fourth quarter on Thursday night, they watched one of their best offensive players limp off the field.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith, who had six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown, left the field under his own power but with a pronounced hitch in his step late in Thursday’s win. He didn’t reappear after leaving the game, although there wasn’t much offensive work left for the Ravens at that point in the proceedings. Tandon Doss replaced Smith in the lineup.

After the game, Smith was asked about the injury. According to Jason Butt of CBSSports.com, Smith passed on an opportunity to discuss what was wrong with his leg. All Smith would say was that he was “all right,” which is probably enough to quiet any fears right now.

By playing on Thursday night, the Ravens will have extra time to prepare for their game against the Chiefs in Week Five. Unless further examination discovers something more serious wrong in Smith’s leg, it seems like a good bet that Smith will be on the field to continue what’s been a very strong start to the 2012 season.

    He got rolled up on at the end of a running play, looked like an ankle thing

    4 games in 17 days. What could possibly go wrong?

    I can’t wait for the 40 game season and 8 game playoff that runs year ’round. Can’t get enough football!

    Funny the attention a winning team brings.

    I see zero mention of how Cribbs got destroyed by a Ravens player (and how the helmet to helmet hit wasn’t called). How about an update on his health status?

    You clearly don’t know the rules. Helmet-to-helmet hits are only illegal on defenseless players. Those include receivers in the act of catching the ball, and QBs in the pocket or passing outside of the pocket.

    This hit on Cribbs was as he returned a punt. He was not defenseless, so the hit was legal.

    Also – don’t pretent to be a fan, because if you were you would know that he walked off the field, and has since been diagnosed with a concussion. This involves him sitting out until he is cleared by medical personell.

    This young man is special…on and off the football field. Smith overcame a lot of adversity, yet went to college and is now an up-and coming receiver in the NFL. But, even more importantly…while he was a child himself, Smith stepped up and helped take care of his siblings.
    Watching Smith go through the heartbreak of losing his brother was painful, but how he handled it was amazing. Smith played less than 24 hours after his brother died. And proceeded to have the best game of his career. I don’t think the Ravens would have won without him.

    I saw this a lot in the comments section about the hit in question and can’t for the life of me figure out how people who frequent this site don’t understand the basic premise of these rules. Helmet or shoulder to the head or neck area is only a penalty on a defenseless player. A returner is not defenseless and its the exact reason the kickoff was moved back to the 35; the kickoff is very dangerus. I don’t known if blind fandom led to people making bogus claims or what.
