The NFL veteran spent the first 13 years of his career with the Carolina Panthers, before signing a three-year contract with the Ravens in March 2014. The five-time Pro Bowl selection will enter the final year of his contract with the Ravens in 2016.
In 15 NFL seasons, Smith has accumulated 13,932 receiving yards and 76 touchdowns.
Before sustaining his torn Achilles, Smith had 46 receptions for 670 yards and three touchdowns through seven games this season.
