Ravens receiver Torrey Smith not frustrated by low catch total

Friday September 19th, 2014

Baltimore Ravens receiver Torrey Smith said he is not upset about his low number of catches after two games, The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports.

Smith has four catches for 60 yards on just 10 targets so far this season. He had 65 catches for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Wide receiver Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta lead the team with 13 catches, while Smith's 189 yards and 25 targets lead the team.

"I'm playing my part, and I know the ball is going to come more than it has been," said Smith. "So, I'm not frustrated at all."

Quarterback Joe Flacco said the team is more focused on executing its game plan than who is getting the largest workload. He did add, however, that Smith will be a large part of the offense despite the slow start.

"I don't really worry too much about who the ball is going to on Sunday. If our game plan works out well and we play a good game on offense, then there's going to be pretty good distribution and you're going to see a lot of guys getting into the game."
"Torrey is a great receiver, so he's going to get his touches," Flacco said. "It's not going to be a week-to-week thing where he's not touching the ball a lot."

The Ravens are 1-1 on the season and play the Browns in Cleveland this Sunday.
