Adam Schefter reports that Ravens CB Jimmy Smith is, in fact, out for the season with torn Achilles.

You can expect the Ravens to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was carried off the field during the second quarter of Sunday’s game with an Achilles injury. Baltimore has already ruled him out for the game.

Smith entered today’s game already dealing with an Achilles injury, so the obvious concern here is that he may have suffered a ruptured tendon much like Seahawks CB Richard Sherman did a few weeks ago.

Smith, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. He’s currently in the second year of his five-year, $54.89 million contract that includes $21 million guaranteed and is set to make base salaries of $8.5 million and $9 million over the next two years.

In 2017, Smith has appeared in 11 games and recorded 26 tackles, three interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and nine pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 12 cornerback out of 116 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding Smith’s injury as the news is available.
