The Ravens suffered a big loss early in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cornerback Jimmy Smith left the game after injuring his left foot on the game's opening series. Smith initially limped off the field after going down, but he was then carted into the locker room to have the foot examined.

The injury was announced as a sprained foot, and Smith is doubtful to return.

Having Smith go down is a significant blow for the Ravens, as he's arguably been the team's top defender through the first seven games of the season. Smith has garnered Pro Bowl talk for his impressive play this season.

The Ravens are also short-handed in the secondary. Lardarius Webb and Dominique Franks are the only other cornerbacks active Sunday, as Chykie Brown was a healthy scratch. The Ravens have seven safeties active, so they will have to use one* *of them in a cornerback role. 

The Ravens are also dealing with injuries on the offensive side of the ball. Starting right guard Marshal Yanda (knee), Kelechi Osemele (eye) and Eugene Monroe all left the game temporarily but returned. An injury was not announced for Monroe, but he missed the last four games after having knee surgery. 

Wide receivers Torrey Smith (concussion) and Michael Campanaro (hamstring) also left the game. Smith suffered the injury early in the third quarter after taking a hit to the head when he was the intended target on a pass that ended up getting intercepted.
