Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith‘s knee injury was about the only thing that went wrong for the Ravens in Sunday’s 59-10 rout of the Dolphins and the impact of that injury will be felt for a while.

Smith went for an MRI on Monday and the tests showed a fairly significant injury for the veteran corner. Raven head coach John Harbaugh said that Smith suffered a Grade 2 sprain and that he will miss “multiple weeks” while recovering from the injury.

Harbaugh added that he does not believe putting Smith on injured reserve with the possibility of bringing him back later is a likely turn of events.

The Ravens were already without Tavon Young, which leaves Brandon Carr, Marlon Humphrey, Anthony Averett, Cyrus Jones and Justin Bethel as their available corners.

  1. Not saying the Ravens won’t miss him, but again this is a blow they can absorb in the short term for certain. Humphrey is a rising star, Carr has certainly been better in Baltimore than in Dallas, Averett looked solid once he got his feet under him Sunday, and they have additional young safeties with speed like Elliot and Clark that they like to throw in with their mixed coverages. Hopefully Jones can step it up for them as well, he has potential but was shaky as their nickel in preseason.
