Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith lost for season

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury.

Smith hurt his left foot in the first quarter of a game against Cincinnati on Oct. 26. The injury was initially diagnosed as a sprain.

But coach John Harbaugh said an examination of the foot Thursday revealed the need for surgery.

Harbaugh says, ''Jimmy is finished for the season, but will recover for our offseason program.''

Smith started all eight games before the injury. He had one interception and 28 tackles.

With Smith out last week for the first time, Baltimore gave up 340 yards passing and six touchdown passes to Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger in a 43-23 defeat.

Now in his fourth season, Smith started all 16 games last year for the first time.
