Torrey Smith Injury Updates

The Eagles added CB Jalen Mills to the injury report Thursday, when a hamstring issue limited his participation. HC Doug Pederson told reporters Friday morning that he expects Mills to be fine to face Carolina on Sunday, though. That should keep Mills at his usual level of IDP consideration. His hamstring could add upside to Carolina outside WRs Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith, though.

49ers WR Torrey Smith (back) is "unlikely" to play against the Patriots today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Smith has been battling through this back injury for multiple weeks now and hasn't topped 26 yards since Week 6. His absence should mean a few extra targets for Quinton Patton and Jeremy Kerley.

49ers WR Torrey Smtih dealt with a back injury throughout Sunday's loss to the Saints. He played 45 of 60 snaps but was unable to finish the game. “I’m hurting,” Smith conceded afterward. We'll see if Smith continues trying to play through the issue, but he's not worth carrying on redraft rosters. He's topped 6.5 PPR points just twice all season.

49ers WR Torrey Smith (back) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Bucs. He popped up on the injury report on Thursday and was limited in the week's final 2 practices. We haven't heard anything to suggest that Smith won't play on Sunday, but the back issue only makes him a riskier fantasy option.

The 49ers have placed WR Bruce Ellington on IR with the hamstring injury he suffered in the 3rd preseason game. Ellington built sleeper buzz all offseason as San Francisco's projected slot receiver. Now he'll miss his entire 3rd NFL season after a pair of disappointing campaigns to open his career. The 49ers' WR corps, meanwhile, gets even weaker. Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton are expected to start on the outside. Newly-acquired Jeremy Kerley might be the favorite for slot duties. The biggest winner, though, might be TE Vance McDonald. He and Smith are the only 49ers pass-catchers worth drafting.

Per beat writer Matt Barrows, 49ers WR Bruce Ellington was one of the standouts from spring practices. Ellington struggled with injuries over his first 2 seasons. But Barrows believes the 5’9 WR is positioned to be the “break-out player” on this offense. Ellington’s reportedly built chemistry with likely Week 1 starter Blaine Gabbert, whose conservative approach matches the WR’s short-range game. And there’s certainly a need for someone to step up behind Torrey Smith. The winner of the #2 job will at least carry some deep league appeal.

The Ravens left WR Torrey Smith off their initial Week 16 injury report Wednesday. That's noteworthy, because Smith barely played at Miami last week after his injured knee swelled up in pregame warm-ups. We'll watch for further reports on his health this week, because it's tough to believe he's already back near 100%. If he's anywhere in that neighborhood, though, Smith would make for a high-upside fantasy football play against the Texans.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday.  It's time to start worrying about his status for this weekend's game against Miami.  The Ravens have been mum on Smith's injury, but it's clearly more than a minor scrape.  We'll see if he can get on the practice field tomorrow, but fantasy owners need to have a backup plan in place.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.  HC John Harbaugh didn't sound concerned about Smith's status on Monday, but we still don't know much about his injury.  Fantasy owners shouldn't consider him a lock to play against the Dolphins this weekend.  Check back tomorrow for another update.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh expects WR Torrey Smith (knee) to play against the Dolphins this weekend.  "Torrey really didn't have anything too serious," Harbaugh said on Monday. "I don't even know how to describe it right now. He'll just be getting ready for Miami. I guess I'd call him day-to-day."  Smith was unable to finish yesterday's game and was limping around the locker room afterward.  But we still don't have any details on the injury.  We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith missed Baltimore's final possession in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, and's Jamison Hensley reports that the wideout was "favoring his right knee" in the locker room afterward. "That's something that coach [John Harbaugh] and I will have to address," Smith reportedly said, regarding the knee. "I don't know when I'm supposed to be going and and when I am not supposed to be going. I'll let Coach handle it." Harbaugh declined to comment on Smith's injury. We'll keep an eye on the situation for a guy who has scored 4 TDs over his past 4 games, including 2 Sunday vs. San Diego.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith knows he's being counted on more than ever before in 2013.  But he's staying cool following the trade of WR Anquan Boldin and the season-ending injury to TE Dennis Pitta.  “No, I never feel pressure at all,” Smith told the Baltimore Sun.  “My job doesn't change.  Obviously, I expect more out of myself performance-wise whether they were there or not."  Smith was already poised for a possible breakout season before Pitta went down.  He'll have to overcome lots of increased coverage, but the 3rd-year man looks like a capable fantasy WR2 as the team's primary pass-catcher.

The Baltimore Sun confirms that Ravens WR Torrey Smith sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.  He never returned after slamming his head on the turf in the 3rd quarter.  He reportedly "seemed fine" afterwards, joking that he couldn't remember the game.  It looks like Smith avoided a serious head injury, but he's still in a race to get cleared ahead of this coming Sunday's game against the Giants.  WR Jacoby Jones would move into the starting lineup if Smith can't go.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith suffered a head injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s game against the Broncos. His head slammed against the turf after going up for a high pass. Smith was obviously woozy as he walked off the field. He went back to the locker room – presumably for concussion testing – and appears to be done for the day.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith is back at practice after tweaking his ankle in last Thursday's preseason opener.  The injury obviously isn't a concern, and Smith's fantasy stock in unaffected.  He caught 3 balls for 43 yards before leaving Thursday's game.  The speedster is an ideal WR3 with upside in fantasy this year.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith says he's "fully recovered" from February sports hernia surgery.  Smith played through the groin injury for much of the 2011 season but still finished with an impressive 16.8 yards-per-catch average.  It's a number he's capable of repeating this coming season.  The fact that he'll be able to participate in OTAs is good news for his development.
