Steve Smith: 'You can ask my wife about my stamina'

Sunday December 14th, 2014

After being sick throughout the week, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver was asked following Sunday's game against the Jaguars about his stamina. His answer?

Smith was listed as probable for the game with an illness, and he missed practice Friday. He was targeted five times during the Ravens' 20-12 win, catching all five passes for 37 yards.

Smith is the Ravens' leading receiver by a wide margin, entering the weekend with 61 receptions for 889 yards and six touchdowns. That yardage total ranks 18th in the NFL, while the 61 receptions rank 25th.

The Ravens' win Sunday was their second straight, moving them to 9-5, tied for second in the AFC North with the Pittsburgh Steelers and slightly behind the Cincinnati Bengals (9-4-1).
