Ravens CB Smith a surprise participant in minicamp

Jimmy Smith joined his Baltimore Ravens teammates on the field at mandatory minicamp on Wednesday, just more than six months after tearing his Achilles.

The cornerback was injured on Dec. 3 in a game against the Detroit Lions and was expected to miss up to eight months.

While Smith is only doing individual drills, his return is a good sign that he could be ready to participate when the team opens training camp on July 19 with a goal of playing Week 1.

Smith was suspended by the NFL for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs the day after he was injured. He had initially appealed, but instead served the four-game ban over the final four weeks of the 2017 season while he was injured.

The 29-year-old was having a strong campaign when he was injured. Smith had three interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, 28 tackles and nine passes defended. He also returned a fumble for a touchdown.
