Ravens' Smith misses scheduled start vs. Rams with illness
Smith, the former Heisman Trophy winner, had been set to play as much as three quarters in Baltimore's third preseason game. Smith was back at the team hotel, the Ravens said. He's battling incumbent Kyle Boller for the starting spot.
Third-stringer Joe Flacco, a rookie from Delaware, got the start instead.
