Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Steve L Smith Sr. has vowed that this season will be the last of his 16-year career as a wide receiver. But fellow wideout Mike Wallace said he would love to continue playing with Smith.

“Sixteen years is a long time, but if anybody can keep playing, it’s him,” Wallace said Sunday. “It’s just an honor to be on the team with him. Every day to see the way he works and see how we carries himself, I just love it. I wish I would have had more time with him.”

Harbaugh admitted that trying to persuade Smith to return “has crossed my mind.”

“If he wants to come back, he’s welcome. Absolutely,” Harbaugh said. “You’d like every good football player you can get. But I don’t want to speak for Steve. He’s had an unbelievably awesome career. He got his 1,000th catch so he should be commended for that. Congratulations to Steve on that accomplishment."

Fantasy Impact:

The oldest receiver in the league at 37 years, Smith ranks second on the team in yards (516) and touchdown catches (threes) and third in receptions (44). In Sunday’s loss, he paced the offense with eight catches for 99 yards and one score and reached the 1,000-reception plateau.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve L Smith went from being questionable on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers to definitely playing against the Cleveland Browns one day later.

The big news from Monday's injury report is Smith wasn't on it. That means the ankle injury, which sidelined him for two games, is no longer an issue heading into Thursday's game against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact:

Smith played 58 of the 70 snaps (83 percent) against the Steelers on Sunday and finished with 47 yards receiving on four catches.

WR Breshad Perriman's learning curve slower than Ravens hoped

Tuesday, October 25, 2016, 8:04pm

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Breshad Perriman, the Ravens' first-round pick in 2015, is currently fifth on the team in receptions (14) and fourth in receiving yards (183). The highlight reel 35-yard catch down the sideline in his first NFL game against the Buffalo Bills, and the 41-yard bomb he went up and caught against the New York Giants provided glimpses of his potential.

But after missing his entire first season with a strained PCL in his right knee, and a chunk of the summer practices with a partially-torn ACL in his left knee, Perriman has spent much of this season struggling to find his place in the offense as he inherited a bigger role because of Steve L Smith's ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Perriman was targeted five times in the Ravens' 24-16 loss to the New York Jets and he finished with just one reception for 11 yards. Two other Joe Flacco passes intended for the wide receiver were intercepted, and another fell incomplete when Perriman didn't recognize that the Jets were blitzing on third down and Flacco had to get rid of the ball early. Flacco and Perriman talked on the sideline and a day later the story said Perriman met with HC John Harbaugh.

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken (thigh, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. Assuming he can get healthy, Aiken should play a lot with Steve L Smith still out with an ankle injury. The Ravens play early on Sunday.
