Will Torrey Smith Receive Any Action in Week 15?


The Baltimore Ravens announced that wide receiver Torrey Smith would be active for last week’s game against the Miami Dolphins. However, he was only on the field for 15 snaps in the game. It worked out in the end, but why did the Ravens No. 1 receiver fail to see the field that much in the most important game of the season?

The answer is very simple. Smith was listed as questionable while being hindered by a knee issue. Luckily for Baltimore, he did not tear anything, but according to Head Coach John Harbaugh, he did suffer a sprain.

“He has a sprain,” Harbaugh said. “We’ll just have to monitor that day-to-day and see if he makes it to the game. He made it to the last game and didn’t damage it any further. He just wasn’t able to be at 100 percent. We all appreciated him gutting it out and giving us what he had. It showed a lot of toughness there in that situation.”

  • Smith was quoted saying before the game that the only way he would miss this game is if he were to need crutches. He didn’t need crutches, and he did not miss the entirety of this game, so he kept true to his word.

    Here’s the real question though: What will Smith’s injury status be moving forward?

    Considering that the Ravens are facing the 2-11 Jacksonville Jaguars at home next week, I don’t think it is all that worth it to give Smith a significant amount of playing time and risk him furthering his injury in that game.

    However, the Ravens have two big games to end the season against the Houston Texans and the Cleveland Browns. Both teams are 7-6 and far from pushovers. Baltimore might want to have Torrey Smith healthy for those two games.

    Let’s just hope that this injury isn’t anything serious and Smith can help propel the Ravens into the playoffs for the sixth time in the last seven years.
