Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that wide receiver Chris Givens will be included in the Ravens' game plan for the team's Week 5 matchup with the Cleveland Browns , Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Harbaugh did not say exactly how or how much Givens will be involved, but it appears the Ravens will be counting on him in the passing game right off the bat. With Steve Smith (back) and Breshad Perriman (knee) out for Week 5, Givens figures to be either No. 3 or No. 4 on the wide receiver depth chart in his team debut.
An MRI revealed Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith has four broken bones in his back, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Smith is currently being considered day to day with the injury, as it may be an ailment the veteran wideout can play through, depending on his level of pain tolerance.
Smith is undoubtedly one of the toughest players in the NFL, but at 36 years old he may find it difficult to suit up while dealing with such a highly painful injury. Kamar Aiken , Marlon Brown , and new addition Chris Givens are in line to receive additional targets if Smith is forced to miss any time.
St. Louis Rams wide receiver Chris Givens was traded to the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday for a conditional draft pick. Givens clearly wasn't going to see much production with the Rams considering he saw only a single target in the first three games of the season, so his outlook should be much better in Baltimore.
With Steve Smith dealing with a back injury, Michael Campanaro (back) out for the season, and first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman (knee) needing surgery, Givens will compete with Kamar Aiken and Marlon Brown for targets from Joe Flacco .
That's two straight games in which Givens has not been targeted, as he has all but fallen out of the wideout rotation. The Rams did utilize his speed with a rush attempt, but with as many skill players as St. Louis uses, Givens is only going to get one or two chances a game to gain yardage.
They'll all finish the season at Seattle.
