As a rookie on the opening kickoff of his first NFL game, Jimmy Smith was nothing but excited. Unfortunately for him, the game ended without ever starting. While rushing down the field in an attempt to cover the kick, Jimmy Smith sprained his ankle. Trainers helped him off the field and he did not return.
Hopefully he’s a quick healer, but that was a tough one. The first kickoff, he runs down there, is fighting like crazy and gets caught up in a pile. – Head Coach John Harbaugh
Smith will miss a few weeks due to the injury. He is now wearing a protective boot while he recovers.
