"He's going to be fine," the source said. "Just a little ginger."
Smith was speared in his lower back by Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons late in the third quarter of the Ravens' 23-20 overtime win in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. He did not return to the game, and the Ravens announced the injury as a lower back contusion.
"He does have a back injury," Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne said in a statement Saturday. "It is not a surgical issue. His status is currently week to week."
We likely won't know more about Smith's back and his status for Week 5 until later next week. The Ravens host Cleveland in an early game.
