Smith (foot) expects to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.
Smith enters the 2016 campaign coming off right foot surgery, but it appears he'll be full-go at training camp prior to the regular season. He currently slates in as the top cornerback for the Ravens on the outside with Shareece Wright across from him.
Jimmy Smith will have the screws removed from his surgically repaired right foot this week, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Smith will need four to six weeks to recover from the procedure but will reportedly be ready for the start of training camp in late July. Smith underwent Lisfranc surgery back in November 2014, but returned healthy last season to start in all 16 games.
Jimmy Smith finished the 2015 season with 54 tackles (48 solo), three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and a sack in 16 games.
Smith bounced back from Lisfranc surgery to start all 16 games, albeit with mixed results. He did play better toward the end of the season, and his contract ensures that he'll be back in Baltimore as the starting right cornerback in 2016. Smith has mostly been an effective cover corner throughout his career, but he's never been much of an IDP option.
