The difficult task of slowing down Antonio Brown will be even tougher for the Ravens on Sunday with their best cornerback sidelined with an ankle injury. Sunday will mark Smith's second consecutive missed game as a result of the injury. Shareece Wright will likely start opposite rookie Tavon Young on the outside Sunday and Jerraud Powers could see added snaps as well.
Smith (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Thursday marked Smith's second consecutive missed practice as a result of his sprained right ankle. Smith will have a chance to return to practice Friday, but it remains uncertain whether he'll be able to suit up Sunday. If he's unable to take the field against the Steelers, Shareece Wright will likely get another start at right corner for the Ravens.
Smith has been battling a sprained ankle, which he initially sustained against the Patriots back on Dec. 12. The cornerback was held out of Sunday's win over the Eagles, and at this point he appears to be trending toward another absence in Week 16 against Pittsburgh. If that's indeed the case, Shareece Wright, who's allowed six touchdowns in 10 games, will serve as the replacement.
