CB Jimmy Smith – Lisfranc Injury – Level of concern: Medium
Smith suffered a Lisfranc injury way back in November of 2014 and has been dealing with it ever since. A Lisfranc injury is when one or more of the metatarsals in the foot is either dislocated or fractured. There is a lengthy recovery period, as Smith still did not look healthy through the first half of the 2015 season, however he played much better in the second half of the season.
Smith recently had surgery to remove the screws in his foot, and should be back for training camp or at latest at the start of the regular season. His foot will be an issue for him, but removing the screws will help ease a lot of the pain he was feeling before. He was back at Mandatory Minicamp doing some individual work, so it’s a good sign that he will be ready to go for the season.
The Ravens need Smith to be at 100 percent in 2016. The secondary has been the Ravens biggest problem for multiple seasons. This is something to keep an eye on.
