Steve Smith just secured a place on the top 10 all-time career receiving yardage list today against the Chargers, then went down with this gruesome injury to what appears to be his right Achilles later in the game on a seemingly routine tackle. He left the field with his head covered in a towel.
If he follows through on his insistence that this will be his last year, we may have seen Smith’s impressive career come to an end today, right after achieving a milestone.
We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
Update (4:37 p.m.): The Ravens report it’s a torn Achilles.
