Humphrey is no longer facing felony robbery charges, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.
Humphrey was arrested in January after he was accused of stealing a phone charger from an Uber driver. The charges predictably were dropped, allowing the 2017 first-round pick to move along with his offseason without distraction. Humphrey finished his rookie year with 34 tackles, two interceptions and 11 passes defensed in 16 games, making five starts after Jimmy Smith suffered a torn Achilles in November. If Smith is ready for the start of the season, Humphrey might need to compete with Brandon Carr for a starting job. The Ravens ideally would like to see Smith and Humphrey lining up outside Week 1.
Humphrey was arrested Thursday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on a felony third-degree robbery charge, Michael Casagrande of AL.com reports.
According to a report of the incident, which occurred back on Jan. 13, Humphrey, the Ravens' first-round pick out of Alabama in 2017, was accused of harassment and being under the influence after allegedly stealing a phone charger valued at $15. The Ravens addressed the matter in a statement Thursday, acknowledging that Humphrey is cooperating with police and that the 21-year-old informed the team his arrest was a "misunderstanding." A resolution on Humphrey's legal situation is expected to come before the 2018 season begins.
Humphrey is expected to retain a starting role at cornerback the rest of the season after Jimmy Smith suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's 44-20 win over the Lions, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Smith, who is also scheduled to begin serving a four-game suspension Week 14 against the Steelers, is expected to undergo season-ending surgery and head to injured reserve later this week. Humphrey, a rookie first-round pick out of Alabama, replaced the veteran in Sunday's contest, finishing with a career-high seven tackles and his second interception of the season in the victory.
Humphrey (thigh) is active for Sunday's matchup with Detroit.
Humphrey was limited in practice throughout the week due to his thigh injury, leading to his questionable tag entering Sunday's game. He's played in 36 percent of the team's defensive snaps to this point of the season and will likely continue to see a similar role.
