Jimmy Smith, Asa Jackson ruled out for Ravens

The Ravens are going to be light on cornerbacks when they play the Redskins on Saturday.

Coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that neither Jimmy Smith nor Asa Jackson would play, although he said that Smith, who injured his chest against the Cowboys last week, could probably play if it were a regular season contest. He and Jackson, who is battling an ankle injury, join Lardarius Webb on the inactive list.

Chykie Brown and Dominique Franks will get the start for the Ravens with Terrence Brooks handling slot duties with the first team. Harbaugh sees an upside to the situation for the players and the team.

“It’s going to be an opportunity for those guys to go against the best for a long period of time,” Harbaugh said, via ESPN.com. “It’s going to be a good chance to evaluate where we’re at and give those guys an opportunity to prove they can play with the best.”

All three of the injured corners are expected to be healthy in time for the start of the regular season, although they may be a bit rusty if the injuries keep them off the field much longer.

    Chykie is horrible

    Robert Griffin will throw for 6 touchdowns in the 1st half now.

    I have a feeling Wk 2 will be like that Monday night game where Ben put up 5 scores on the secondary – in the first half.

    Redskins would be wise to hold RG3 out of this matchup.

    Quarterbacks get injured against the Ravens in preseason. Vick twice. RG3 already once before. Do the right thing!

    Enjoy the preseason Skins fans, because it’s all over for you once the regular season comes along.

    “I have a feeling Wk 2 will be like that Monday night game where Ben put up 5 scores on the secondary – in the first half.”

    After the performance last night the only feeling I’d have about week 2 as a Steeler fan is nausea.
