The Ravens are expected to have cornerback Jimmy Smith back when they face the Broncos on Sunday. Smith has missed the past month with a sports hernia.

The Baltimore Ravens are expected to have the services of cornerback Jimmy Smith when they face the Denver Broncos today, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. Smith, who played in college at the University of Colorado, hasn't played since Nov. 4 because of a sports hernia, but was a full participant in practice this past week.

Smith has yet to bring in an interception this season, and has 28 tackles. He has 48 tackles and two interceptions for his career. He was the 27th overall pick by the Ravens in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The once-mighty Baltimore defense has struggled this season. The unit is 23rd in the league in passing yardage allowed, and 24th in total defense. Those numbers indicate a favorable matchup for Peyton Manning and the Broncos passing attack.

The Broncos and Ravens kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Broncos are a three-point favorite, according to Oddsshark.com.
