Sources: Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. has four broken bones in his back
Ravens veteran wide receiver Steve Smith has four broken bones in his back, according to league sources. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but one source emphasized that Smith may be able to play through the injury given his high tolerance for pain. Smith is one of the toughest players in the league with a legendary ability to play through injuries, but this could sideline him. Smith got hurt against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night during an overtime win at Heinz Field. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
