Ravens CB Jimmy Smith suffered a bruised chest in Saturday night's preseason game.

Smith was shaken up on a pass intended for Dez Bryant in the first quarter. It's another blow to a Ravens secondary that's already without Lardarius Webb (back) and Asa Jackson (ankle). Even if the injury isn't serious, Baltimore could hold Smith out for the rest of the preseason.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley named CB Jimmy Smith the most impressive defensive player at training camp.

Smith was arrested for disorderly conduct before camp opened. He hasn't let it sidetrack him. Coming off a breakout 2013, Smith is poised to lock down one side of the field yet again. He's "repeatedly won" in one-on-one drills at camp. The Ravens need Lardarius Webb (back) to get healthy.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith is not expected to face discipline from the NFL following his Saturday night arrest.

Smith reportedly refused to back away from a woman who was overdosing at a bar and was charged with a misdemeanor peace disturbance. It may not even count as an offense against the personal conduct policy. Smith will line up across from Lardarius Webb when the Ravens host the Bengals Week 1.

Towson (MD) police allege Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was attending to a woman who had overdosed on cocaine before his Saturday night arrest.

Smith was "trying to help" the woman, who ODed at a Towson bar. He "disobeyed orders" when medics arrived. After numerous expletives, Smith "played the 'I'm Jimmy Smith. I play for the Ravens' card," and told police "You're only doing this so you can get on the news," according to Baltimore reporter Paul Gessler. Smith has only been charged with a misdemeanor peace disturbance.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was arrested for disorderly conduct Saturday night.

Police responded to a call about an unconscious woman in a bathroom at a bar, and Smith was cited for failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer. Smith was reportedly trying to assist the woman but wouldn't move away from her after police repeatedly asked him to do so. Smith was released from custody at 11:15 PM Saturday night and faces a misdemeanor charge. He's the fifth Raven to be arrested since last season ended. Off-field issues led to Smith falling to the 27th pick in the 2011 draft. Smith will celebrate his 26th birthday later this month.

Ravens exercised RCB Jimmy Smith's team option for 2015.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Smith's option year is worth $6.898 million. Since Smith was not chosen in the first 10 picks, his option year is worth the average salary of the third- through 25th-highest paid players at his position. Smith broke out in 2013, starting all 16 games as he racked up 58 tackles, 15 pass breakups, two picks and two forced fumbles.

Coach John Harbaugh confirmed the Ravens plan to exercise RCB Jimmy Smith's fifth-year option for 2015.

"We are hopeful that we can sign Jimmy long-term," Harbaugh said. "That will be our goal." A 2011 first-rounder, Smith is coming off his best season as a pro, and is still only 26 (in July). The Ravens have until May 3 to exercise Smith's option.

The Ravens are expected to exercise RCB Jimmy Smith's club option for 2015.

The cost of the option is not yet clear, but the Ravens want to keep Smith long term after a breakout 2013 season. Smith set career highs in starts (16), tackles (58), pass breakups (15), interceptions (2), and forced fumbles (2). He's still ascending after a slow start to his career. Smith turns 26 in July.

Jimmy Smith shadowed Calvin Johnson whenever he lined up outside on Monday night.

The Ravens typically just play sides with their corners, but they installed a new strategy to face Megatron. Smith, the No. 27 overall pick in 2011, played a very strong game. Johnson dropped two wide-open passes and finished with six catches for 98 yards, but Smith was step-for-step with him on a majority of the plays. It's a notch in the belt for a guy that had already graded out as a top-25 corner in Pro Football Focus' rankings coming into Week 15.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (concussion) has been cleared to practice, as expected.

Smith has been medically cleared following his Thanksgiving night helmet-to-helmet collision with Le'Veon Bell. PFF's No. 28 corner will be in line for his normal every-down role as the Ravens host the Vikings Sunday.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (concussion) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 14 game against the Vikings.

Smith and Le'Veon Bell both sustained concussions when their heads collided at the goal line late in the Thanksgiving night game. Smith apparently emerged in better shape. "Everything looks really, really good for Jimmy. He should be fine," Harbaugh said. "You never know with that, but it looks like he'll be able to practice Wednesday." Smith has graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 28 corner on the season while playing virtually every snap.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith left Sunday's loss at Cleveland with a groin injury and did not return.

It's a concern because Smith underwent sports hernia surgery last year. He was replaced in nickel packages by Chykie Brown.

The Ravens' official depth chart lists Jimmy Smith as the starting right cornerback over Corey Graham.

Graham officially started in Week 1, but the Ravens played three corners for the majority of their blowout loss to the Broncos. Graham was benched for Smith on Sunday, but still saw 38 snaps as the Ravens' nickel corner. A 2011 first-round pick, Smith has made only seven career starts thanks in part to injuries.

According to, third-year CB Jimmy Smith has "become more of a professional" this offseason.

The No. 27 pick of the 2011 draft, Smith was banged up the majority of his first two NFL campaigns, but came on during the Ravens' Super Bowl run. He's also lost 10 pounds this offseason, prompting DBs coach Teryl Austin to say he looks like a "different guy." Smith is competing for No. 2 duties with Corey Graham opposite Lardarius Webb, but all three players are expected to play a healthy dose of snaps.
