Ravens S Earl Thomas (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Steelers. It's no surprise, given that Baltimore has made clear it's resting key players in a meaningless contest (for them). CB Marcus Peters (chest) and CB Jimmy Smith (groin) are active, but don't expect full playing time for them. Even so, Steelers QB Devlin Hodges keeps the Ravens' defense in play for fantasy.
The NFL on Tuesday confirmed that it has suspended Ravens CB Jimmy Smith for the 1st 4 games under the personal-conduct policy. Per multiple reports, Smith has been suspended for "emotional abuse" of an ex-girlfriend. We'll see if further details emerge on the situation.
Ravens DT Michael Pierce (illness) is active for today's game against the Titans. Teammates CB Lardarius Webb and CB Jimmy Smith are also playing through "questionable" tags. None is a meaningful IDP option this week.
Ravens CB Shareece Wright (thigh), LB C.J. Mosley (thigh) and DL Timmy Jernigan (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Cowboys. Use them as you normally would in IDP situations. Wright returns from 3 games lost to injury and has played in just 1 of Baltimore's past 5 contests. He has only delivered 2 quality fantasy outings for the year. Baltimore will be without top CB Jimmy Smith (back) and OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot).
The Ravens will likely miss at least CB Jimmy Smith (back) and OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot) Sunday against Dallas. Both players are doubtful. Smith put in just a limited practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Dumervil put in full workouts Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday. HC John Harbaugh told The Baltimore Sun that Dumervil looked good in practice this week but that his status would be up to the doctors. DE Timmy Jernigan (shoulder), LB C.J. Mosley (thigh) and CB Shareece Wright (thigh) are all questionable for the game. Jernigan joined the injury report Thursday and missed the final 2 workouts. He looks like a weak bet to play. Mosley, on the other hand, put in full practices Thursday and Friday, while Wright practiced in full every day. Both appear likely to play.
Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (concussion) is active today against the Jets despite entering the weekend questionable. Baltimore will be without other starting CB Shareece Wright (thigh), however, along with OLB Terrell Suggs (biceps) and ILB C.J. Mosley (thigh), who had already been ruled out.
Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley has been ruled out for Sunday's game agains the Jets, marking the 2nd straight game he'll miss with a thigh injury. He sat out practice all week. LB Albert McClellan started in his place against the Giants, played 79% of the snaps and should get the nod again. But Zachary Orr is the Baltimore LB to play in your IDP leagues. The defense will also likely miss OLB Terrell Suggs, who's doubtful with a torn biceps. CB Shareece Wright is also doubtful with a thigh injury, while CB Jimmy Smith (concussion) is questionable. He had yet to clear the concussion protocol as of Friday. CB Tavon Young, OLB Za'Darius Smith and rookie OLB Matt Judon should see more playing time with all the injuries.
ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports that the Ravens expect CB Jimmy Smith to be ready for training camp and that he might get on the field for June minicamp. Smith is having surgery this week to remove screws from his previously repaired foot, which didn't cost him any games in 2015. We'll see how he looks once he takes the field this summer. Smith can be a marginal IDP contributor.
Ravens CB Jimmy Smith will miss "a few weeks" because of the foot sprain he suffered in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati, according to CSN Baltimore's Clifton Brown. Smith has played well in coverage this year, so his absence can only help the fantasy outlook for a Pittsburgh pass offense that blew up the Colts on Sunday. Smith's no huge IDP option, so feel free to drop him for a fill-in if you've been using him.
