The entire Ravens Flock just let out one collective sigh of relief.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback, Jimmy Smith, left the field early in yesterday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. Smith was involved in a collision with another teammate, and after the incident, he immediately reached for his knee. Smith wobbled as he was escorted off the field by trainers.
Last night, Ravens head coach, John Harbaugh, stated that Smith’s injury was not going to be season-ending and that he was awaiting the results of an MRI on Monday.
The results are now in, and Jimmy Smith has been diagnosed with an MCL sprain, a nonserious injury.

There is no timetable currently in place for the return of Jimmy Smith, but the veteran cornerback is not expected to miss much time.
This is very good news, as Jimmy Smith has dealt with many, more serious, injuries in his past. Yesterday’s incident was a scary moment for Baltimore, but the good news is that Smith will be back to good health soon.
Update: 2:36 PM
Ravens head coach, John Harbaugh announced that Smith’s sprain is a grade 2 MCL sprain. He is set to miss multiple weeks. There is a possibility Smith could be placed on the injured reserve, but Harbaugh says it is not probable.
