The Baltimore Ravens have seen their defensive back room be absolutely decimated by injuries over the course of the 2021 season. Now, COVID-19 is making it’s way through the position. It was announced by the team that cornerback Jimmy Smith was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday morning, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reporting that Smith tested positive for the virus.

With Smith out, the Ravens activated defensive back Mazzi Wilkins from the practice squad as a replacement for him. Wilkins originally signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2019.

Wilkins only has three total tackles in his limited NFL career, but Baltimore needs every player they can to fill out their defensive back lineup for their game in Week 15.

Aside from Smith, the Ravens will be without cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters and Chris Westry, as well as safeties DeShon Elliott and Chuck Clark.
