Ravens WR Smith a game-time call


Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith will be a game-time decision on Sunday when the Ravens play the Jacksonville Jaguars, coach John Harbaugh said Friday.

Smith, who is dealing with a sprained right knee suffered in Week 13, did not catch a pass in limited playing time against the Miami Dolphins last Sunday.

Smith returned to practice Friday after missing the first two days.

“I think sometimes it is better for coach to save me from myself,” Smith told the Baltimore Sun. “I’ve never had to make a call like that. I can play through pain, but it’s a matter of weighing: Is it worth lingering for a few weeks? Is it going to be ready on Sunday? I don’t know the answer yet. It will be resolved here soon, hopefully tomorrow. I’d love to be out there Sunday, but we’ll see what happens.”

Smith has played all 61 games since being drafted by the Ravens in the second round in 2011. This season, he has 38 catches for 609 yards and eight touchdowns.
