Report: Jimmy Smith Suffered Low Ankle Sprain At Practice Friday

Owings Mills, MD (WJZ)- The Ravens may have lost one of their defensive backs for some time after reports indicate that corner Jimmy Smith had to be carted off the field with 30 minutes left in practice on Friday morning. According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, Smith got injured during team drills when he got "tangled up" with tight end Mark Andrews while defending a pass.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec then reported after practice that according to a source, the injury was a low ankle sprain, which, while it could keep him out of practice for some time, is not as serious as the carting off would have suggested.


Smith has been snake bitten by injuries over the course of his career. In the last two seasons, he's played just 19 games total for the team missing time with an MCL sprain, groin strain, ankle sprain and shoulder injury.

Smith has also suffered an Achilles tear, multiple other ankle sprains and a sports hernia over the course of his 10-year career with the Ravens.

The veteran returned to the team on a one-year $2.5 million deal this season. In his time with the Ravens, he has collected 14 interceptions. The Ravens selected Smith with the 27th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
