Marcus Smith To Miss Season With Torn Acl

Ravens Notebook

August 15, 2009|By Jamison Hensley | Jamison Hensley,

Ravens wide receiver Marcus Smith is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, his agent confirmed Friday.

Smith, who was vying for one of the top four wide receiver spots, injured his knee in the second quarter of Thursday's 23-0 win over the Washington Redskins.

There is no timetable for Smith's surgery, but it could be performed in the next week if the swelling goes down.

"He was having a good camp and had an opportunity for a lot of reps," said Kevin Omell, Smith's agent. "He was looking to build upon a good rookie season."

No surgery for Beck

It doesn't appear third-string quarterback John Beck will need surgery.

His magnetic resonance imaging didn't reveal any torn ligaments, a league source said.

Beck, who injured his throwing shoulder Thursday, is expected to be rested by the Ravens.
