    Report: Ravens WR Steve Smith has four broken bones in back

    An MRI revealed Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith has four broken bones in his back, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Smith is currently being considered day to day with the injury, as it may be an ailment the veteran wideout can play through, depending on his level of pain tolerance. Smith is undoubtedly one of the toughest players in the NFL, but at 36 years old he may find it difficult to suit up while dealing with such a highly painful injury. Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown, and new addition Chris Givens are in line to receive additional targets if Smith is forced to miss any time.

    Ravens WR Michael Campanaro hits injured reserve with back injury

    Ravens wide receiver Michael Campanaro hits injured reserve with back injury Campanaro (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.Campanaro's initial prognosis was that he was week to week with a herniated disc, so the Ravens either opted for surgery or wanted to conceal yet another blow to an already shallow group of receivers while they negotiated a trade for Chris Givens.With Campanaro out, Steve Smith still nursing a back injury, and first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman (knee) requiring surgery, it looks like Givens, Kamar Aiken, and Marlon Brown will receive the majority of Joe Flacco's receiver targets in the near future.

    Ravens WR Marlon Brown has quiet night in Week 4 win

    Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown caught two passes for nine yards on four targets in Thursday's 23-20 overtime win over the Steelers.Baltimore entered the game without much of a receiving corps, then watched Steve Smith and Michael Campanaro exit with lower-back injuries. Brown still couldn't get anything going, whereas Kamar Aiken caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.Although he has trouble getting open and hasn't done much this season, Brown could be forced into something close to an every-snap role, if Smith (back) misses any time. Should that happen, Aiken would be the more attractive option, but the Baltimore receiving corps would mostly just be a difficult mess to predict.

    Ravens WR Marlon Brown catches just two passes in Week 3 loss

    Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown caught two passes for 29 yards on five targets in Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Bengals. Although Kamar Aiken again got the starting nod over Brown, the two wideouts have been on approximately equal footing in terms of both snaps and targets through three weeks. Neither has made any kind of case to be more involved in the offense, with both showing an inability to separate from defensive backs. If Breshad Perriman (knee) ever gets healthy, he might step right into a starting role.

    Ravens WR Marlon Brown back at practice Tuesday

    Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown was back at practice Tuesday for only the fourth time since training camp began, according to The Baltumore Sun. He had been sidelined since Aug. 2 due to back and hamstring injuries. Brown said the injuries were "nothing major," as he participated in individual drills Tuesday. "It's just a process [coming back], but if you get over that hump, you're good," Brown said. "I like practicing, and I just wasn't practicing. It was definitely difficult." Brown underwent an MRI on his back, which revealed no disc damage, coach John Harbaugh said. It is still uncertain if Brown will be ready for Thursday's preseason opener against the Saints. "We haven't talked about that yet," Brown said. "It's my first day today. We're just going to see how it goes, day-by-day."
