Steve Smith is recovering from a November Achilles tear, but the Ravens expect him to participate in camp.

Summary

Steve Smith enters this season coming off a torn Achilles' tendon that he suffered in Week 8 last season. It's an injury from which not many players have recovered, meaning that the 37 year-old Smith has yet another uphill climb, which he typically treats as opportunities to prove doubters incorrect. However, as of June 13, Smith has not participated in OTAs and has no timetable for his return. He says he'll need to get some activity in training camp in order to be ready to play Week 1. If Smith can get back to health for the regular season, he's unlikely to be the downfield threat due to his age and a potential loss of speed from the injury. Smith will likely be tasked with being more of a possession receiver and working intermediate parts of the field. When Baltimore needs a big third down play, Smith will be the guy targeted by Joe Flacco. His tight-area quickness can still be an asset if his recovery is successful. His progress throughout the offseason program will be one of the biggest stories in Baltimore. (June 13)

Ravens | Steve Smith won't play much (Thu Jun 16, 07:33 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') probably won't play much in the preseason, if at all, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Our View: As we've said before, this is expected. They don't want to risk a guy who is a big part of their offense in the most meaningless part of the season. Smith should be a solid WR4 this year, but we don't expect the eye-popping numbers he was putting up last season.

Ravens | Steve Smith day-to-day (Wed Jun 15, 06:02 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') said he is day-to-day and is being smart with his rehabilitation. He is not concerned with playing the preseason if it does not happen.

Our View: He shouldn't be, and the team and fans shouldn't be either. At 4,000 years old (or 37), Smith is clearly on the downside of a nice career. He had a great season last year before his injury, but it's hard to comfortably predict a 37-year old receiver is going to pick up where he left off after an Achilles injury. We have him as a WR4 or WR5 right now, though that could climb. At this point you're hoping to get him at value (his ADP is currently 113 overall and he's WR46) and then see him recapture some of the 2015 magic.
