|Wallace’s status entering 2012 appears uncertain as the Steelers 4th year wide receiver has thus far refused to sign his restricted free agent tender which would pay him $2.7-million for the upcoming season. With reports indicating that Wallace and his agent have instead asked the team for a long term contract averaging $14-16-million, the gulf between the parties is clearly huge. Wallace is coming off a solid 2011 campaign where he finished the year with 72 receptions (a career-high), for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns. While those are solid numbers, he faded down the stretch and averaged a career-low 16.6 yards per reception. Over the final seven games of the season, he caught just 25 of 50 targets for 325 yards and a pair of scores. Despite that late season swoon, Wallace remains perhaps the most feared big play receiver in the game outside of Calvin Johnson and should be considered a mid-tier WR1 on draft day.
| Steve Smith misses practice Thursday -- Thu Nov 3 11:30 am --|
|Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. didn't practice Thursday, which puts his availability in doubt for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.
Smith hasn't been on the field since injuring his ankle on Oct. 9. He would likely need more than one day of practice to get ready to play a game again. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Smith hasn't played since Week 5 and it appears he will miss this week's game against the Steelers leaving WR duties to Mike Wallace, Kamar Aiken and Breshad Perriman. TE Dennis Pitta gets a slight bump in value with Smith out.
| Flacco expected to start -- Sun Oct 23 3:00 am --|
|Ravens' QB Joe Flacco, listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, is expected to start today vs Jets, per source. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Flacco missed practice time this week but is expected to play although likely at less than 100 percent. A matchup with Jets is certainly good news for the Ravens QB and WR Mike Wallace.
| Steve Smith listed as Doubtful -- Fri Oct 14 1:10 pm --|
|Steve Smith is listed as Doubtful on the injury report. (Baltimore Ravens on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Smith is going to be inactive on Sunday which should increase the opportunities for Kamar Aiken and tight end Dennis Pitta. Mike Wallace is also in play as a Flex option.
| No practice for Steve Smith, Wallace limited -- Thu Oct 13 12:15 pm --|
Ravens banged up at receiver

FF Today's Take: Smith missed practice Wednesday and is a candidate for the inactive list. Wallace has a better chance of playing but we should know more on his status later in the week. Expect Kamar Aiken to see an increased workload against the Giants.
