Ravens Injury Updates After Grudge Match

Posted Nov 28, 2013

Brandon Stokley suffers knee injury, Jimmy Smith should be ‘OK’ and Elvis Dumervil has ankle sprain.


The Ravens are coming out of Thursday’s matchup against the Steelers with a few injuries to monitor.

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley appeared to have the most significant injury, as the veteran wideout left the game with a knee sprain in the first half. Stokley, who had two catches for 27 yards, initially tried to come back in the game but then determined he could not play.

Head Coach John Harbaugh did not provide specifics, but indicated that Stokley would undergo further evaluation.

“We’ll see about it tomorrow,” Harbaugh said.

Stokley has dealt with injuries all season, as a thigh injury forced him to miss seven games. He just returned to the lineup last week against the Jets.

Starting cornerback Jimmy Smith also left the game with an injury, which he suffered at the end of the fourth quarter. He went down in a violent collision between teammate Courtney Upshaw and Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell.

Smith and Upshaw both tried to stop Bell at the goal line, and the collision took off Bell’s helmet and appeared to knock him out. Bell and Smith both laid motionless on the ground for a few moments before getting tended to by the medical staff and ultimately walking off the field on their own.

Harbaugh did not specify if Smith suffered a concussion on the play, but said he “should be OK.”

The other injury concern for Baltimore was outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, who left the game in the first half with an ankle sprain. He was able to return and finish the game.
