Is it just me, or is the high ankle sprain in the NFL the oblique strain or intercostal muscle strain in Major League Baseball?  It sure seems that way.

For Ravens first round draft pick Jimmy Smith, the season didn’t get off on the right foot.  (I’ve got to cut it out with these stupid jokes.)  Smith left the game after the opening kickoff with an ankle sprain, x-rays were negative.

After the game, The Sun’s Jamison Hensley told the 98 Rock postgame show, in between Nickleback songs, that he was informed that Smith’s injury could be a high ankle sprain and that he would likely miss week two.  Hensley posted on twitter that Smith declined to talk about the injury and left the locker room on crutches with a foot brace.

The injury is certainly a bummer for the rookie, though thankfully the Ravens saw good games out of Cary Williams and Lardarius Webb in the secondary against Pittsburgh.
