He had an injury last year and came back with that great performance against the Pats in the AFC championship. Hopefully it happens like that again.

Man we need to make sure we have our corners are prepared for some of the top passers in the league. Jimmy Smith was our nickel. Webb injured, Smith started, Chykie Brown was nickel. Smith injured and now who knows what John Harbaugh will do i just hope they dont get picked on.

Best wishes Jimmy. You weren't drafted in the 1st round for no reason. Take this time to get it all together. Then, come back swinging. Go Ravens!!! :)

The injury bug is often a result of poor conditioning, which is hard to understand when Jimmy spent the entire summer in Owings Mills.

One or two injuries per season is to be expected in football, but Jimmy has been struggling since his days in Colorado and I think it's been affecting him sincfe day 1 in his NFL career

Ya, he's starting to have that "Kindle" feel to him.
I hope he heals and comes back stronger than ever. We need CB's!

Jimmy has shown glimpses of greatness. Last years post season he looked like he was turning a corner and then slumped this year. Not all great players become great over night. Even losing teams in the NLF have WR's that are better than what he saw in college.
I have complete faith in Jimmy to become a shutdown corner someday.

The good thing, arguably, is that our next three games are against teams that have difficulty throwing the football (Pittsburgh without Big Ben and San Diego). You could argue Washington falls into that class too, as they don't really have any true top receivers.

But make no mistake, playing teams like the Giants and Broncos without our top two corners is going to be tough sledding.

Of course, the frequency with which Jimmy was on the field coupled with his play this season and you could argue it doesn't really change much either.

Anyway, godspeed on the healing Jimmy.
Thankfully, none of our fans are GMs, so you wont get cut while you're away and have to go to PIT or CIN to make us pay for it.

I wonder if the haters stopped to consider the possibility that Jimmy's play this season has been affected by his groin injury for quite awhile? It's likely that he's been injured all along, tried to play through it, but it got so bad that it required surgery now.

Graham and Cary start sunday while Johnson learns the Defense and probly rotates at nickel with Chykie.
After a couple weeks or so, Graham probly goes back to nickel and Johnson starts (because i think he's a better corner, contributed more at Oakland than Graham did at Chicago)

easy.

I think the defense did something to offend a Gypsy. This has not been their year. I hope everybody recovers.

Honestly.. I think It's time to bring up Asa Jackson and give the boy some reps!!! he has Speed and 1 on 1 coverage Ability.. get him his reps now and get him acclimated to the NFL way of Life. All our other Rookies we drafted have gotten at least a chance outside of Tommy Streeter.. give Asa Jackson a Chance Already!!!

Get well jimmy. Ignore all these haters, I know your gonna be a great player.
[/quote]

I love how people gave you negatives for this, it just shows you that they are haters. Anyway when he gets back, I am very confident that he will do good and will one day be a great CB. People expect Jimmy to be a star already just because he was a 1st round pick last year. It doesn't work out that way, especially for CB's. I can't name one CB in the league right not that is playing, or did play at a pro bowl level there second year in the NFL; let alone even start. But that is just thinking off the top of my head.
