Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is "day to day" after landing on his right knee while trying to catch a pass in the end zone late in Sunday's game.

Although Smith grabbed his right knee and didn't return for the Ravens' final series of a 34-33 loss to the San Diego Chargers, coach John Harbaugh downplayed the severity of the injury Monday and predicted that the former Maryland standout will be preparing for next Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Smith declined to comment on the injury after the game, but he was limping.

"Torrey really didn't have anything too serious," Harbaugh said Monday. "I don't even know how to describe it right now. He'll just be getting ready for Miami. I guess I'd call him day to day."

Smith caught six passes for 65 yards and two touchdowns against the Chargers. He has seven touchdowns in the past seven games.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Marlon Brown is still undergoing the NFL concussion testing protocol. Brown's symptoms subsided Monday after he landed hard on his head Sunday and left the game.

Rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro has missed the past four games with a pulled hamstring, but the River Hill graduate is expected to be available to play against the Dolphins.

Campanaro practiced on a limited basis last week, but his recovery has been slow enough that Harbaugh discussed the injury at length Monday.

"Campanaro, he just has a hamstring [issue], and it has just been slow," Harbaugh said. "It was supposed to be two weeks ago. Now you're just at the point where it's, 'Let me know when you're ready.' Hamstrings are like that; that's just a fact of it.

"He's working really hard, and I think there's a chance for this week. But now you get to the point where I'm just not going to count on him until he's back. Availability and ability, durability goes with it. If you're not out there, you're not out there, but it's not his fault. He's killing himself trying to get back."

The Ravens are hoping to get cornerback Asa Jackson back from a toe injury this week. He has been practicing but remains on injured reserve-designated to return.

"We just have to see he's moving and he's bursting and then the next day, [see if the foot] feels good the next day and go back out and do it again the next day," Harbaugh said. "He had a good week last week and I'm very optimistic, but you don't know it until you see it."
