The Ravens will be without cornerback Jimmy Smith for the remainder of the 2014 season.

The organization announced that Smith had surgery on his foot and will be unable to come back this year. This is a huge blow to a secondary that has had some major issues in the past few weeks. Smith is someone that can match up with just about any team's No. 1 receiver. Without him, the Ravens could continue to be susceptible to the pass.

With Smith out for the year, Danny Gorrer is expected to step in and be the starter opposite of Lardarius Webb for the short term. When Asa Jackson comes off of the injured reserve-designated to return list, he'll certainly factor into the mix as a potential starter.

For the year, Smith had 28 total tackles and one interception.

The Ravens previously picked up Smith's fifth-year option on his rookie contract. He'll be back next season, with his future beyond that with the Ravens uncertain at this time.
