Davis: Mock Draft 4.0
"There were multiple [tissue] tears," Smith said. "It was one of those injuries where you could play with it or get it fixed. But it wasn't one of those injuries where I wasn't able to run, period, so I kept playing with it."
Despite the injury, Smith set Ravens rookie records in receptions (50), receiving yards (841) and touchdowns (seven). He also had four catches for 91 yards and a touchdown during the postseason.
In February, the team confirmed Smith's surgery. Two weeks ago, he played in his charity basketball game in Virginia, and is expected to be in attendance Monday when the Ravens begin their offseason program.
