Cornerback Jimmy Smith has been ruled out for the Ravens' game against the Arizona Cardinals Sept. 15, no surprise since head coach John Harbaugh announced earlier this week that Smith would miss "multiple weeks" after being injured in the season opener Sept. 8.
Smith is the only Ravens player expected to miss the game. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey (back) missed one practice earlier in the week and is listed as questionable but is expected to play. Tight end Mark Andrews (foot) and wide receiver Marquise Brown (hip) also missed practice Sept. 13, but Harbaugh said he has "no concern" about them.
Smith suffered what Harbaugh called a Grade 2 sprain in his right knee when linebacker Patrick Onwuasor rolled into him trying to make a tackle.
It marks the latest injury for Smith, who has played all 16 games just twice in his nine-year career. Last season, Smith played in 12 games after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season.
The Ravens' secondary depth has been thinned considerably already this year. In addition to Smith's injury, top slot cornerback Tavon Young (neck) and rookie cornerback Iman Marshall are both on injured reserve.
Facing the Arizona Cardinals' 'Air Raid' offense led by rookie quarterback Kyler Murray that frequently utilitizes four- and even five-receiver sets, the Ravens could make a roster move to bolster the secondary, Harbaugh said.
The most logical move would be adding cornerback Maurice Canady from the practice squad. Canady played in seven games last season, but the fourth-year veteran did not make the 53-man roster at the end of training camp and was re-signed to the practice squad. In order to be active for the Cardinals game, Canady would need to be activated by 4 p.m. Sept. 14.
Here is the full, final injury report for the Ravens' Week 2 game:
OUT: CB Jimmy Smith (knee)
QUESTIONABLE: CB Marlon Humphrey (back), TE Mark Andrews (foot), LB Tyus Bowser (groin), WR Marquise Brown (hip), RB Mark Ingram (shoulder), LB Pernell McPhee (NIR)
OUT: OL Lamont Gaillard (knee)
