Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith participated in Wednesday's practice, approximately six months removed from tearing his Achilles.
Smith sustained the injury while attempting to cover a deep route during the Ravens' 44-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Dec. 3.
The 29-year-old participated in individual drills on Wednesday for the Ravens, who are hoping to have him ready for the regular-season opener on Sept. 9.
Smith matched his career high with three interceptions last season while playing through a sore Achilles. He also had 26 tackles and nine passes defensed in 12 games.
