Torrey Smith Injury: Updates on Ravens WR's Possible Concussion

A rough start for the Baltimore Ravens against the Denver Broncos got a bit rougher just after the half, when wide receiver Torrey Smith was taken into the locker room to be tested for a concussion.

UPDATE: Sunday, December 23 at 3:00 p.m. ET

The Ravens' frustrating offense will get a jolt for Sunday's game against the Giants from big-play threat Smith, according to the team

Smith's concussion, along with the potential return of Ray Lewis that didn't come to be, were the two big stories in Ravens practice this week. Getting him back for this game will be a huge emotional lift for a team that needs to do something to stop a three-game losing streak.

While it cannot be fully confirmed until he passes independent neurological tests, it's looking like Smith will play on Sunday. According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the breakout wide receiver was in practice for the second straight day on Friday:

Meanwhile, offensive guard Marshal Yanda and wide receiver Torrey Smith practiced for the second day in a row on a limited basis. Yanda has a sprained right ankle and Smith is recovering from a concussion. Both are questionable, but expected to play Sunday

Though the Ravens have a playoff berth locked up, a win on Sunday would lock up the AFC North a week early. With a matchup against the Giants upcoming, having Smith in the lineup will be critical.

Great news for Ravens fans and fantasy owners as Torrey Smith (concussion) has returned to practice, according to NBC's Mike Florio.

Ravens receiver Torrey Smith suffered a concussion on Sunday.  The good news, for now, is that he has been cleared to return to practice.

Per multiple reports, Smith is back on the practice field with his teammates today, on four days after suffering a brain injury against the Broncos.

His presence at practice doesn’t mean he’ll play.  Ultimately, he’ll be required to be cleared by an independent neurologist.

Torrey Smith's afternoon is over, according to the team's official Twitter account:

This is obviously a tough break for the Ravens, especially on an afternoon when so much else went wrong.

From CBS Fantasy Football:

The team's official Twitter account verified the report:

One promising sign for the team is that he did report back to the sidelines, though it remains unknown if he'll re-enter the game. From Michelle Beisner of NFL Network:

Hopefully, Smith will be concussion-free and able to return.

At the time of this publication, the Ravens were trailing the Broncos 24-3, and the potential loss of Smith promised to make the comeback attempt all the more difficult.

Before being injured, Smith had one reception for 14 yards.

In an up-and-down season for the Ravens, Smith has been a bright spot, with 44 receptions for 767 yards and seven touchdowns. Though predominately a field-stretching deep threat for the squad, Smith has shown growth as a complete receiver in Baltimore's offense and a reliable target for Joe Flacco.

Be sure to keep it here as more updates become available on his injury status.
