The Ravens continue to get positive reports on top cornerback Jimmy Smith’s rehabilitation from the torn left Achilles tendon he sustained in a game last December against the Detroit Lions. Smith has been at the team facility on a regular basis rehabbing the injury, which could jeopardize his readiness for the start of the 2018 season. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said he spoke at the NFL scouting combine with Smith’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and Rosenhaus confirmed that the 29-year-old cornerback is making good progress. “I see Jimmy. He’s there because he’s rehabbing. I see him in the building. He’s telling me he’s doing very well,” Newsome said. “I spoke with Drew earlier in the week and Drew indicated that he just spent some time with Jimmy and Jimmy was doing well.” Newsome acknowledged that Smith’s tenuous status, coupled with Jaylen Hill’s recovery from a torn ACL that occurred in late December, might complicate the team’s offseason decision-making at cornerback.
