Brother of Ravens WR Torrey Smith killed on cycle

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 23, 2012
The brother of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been killed in a motorcycle accident. Tevin Chris Jones, 19, died of injuries he sustained in a crash in West Moreland County in northeast Virginia, according to the Ravens. Smith was notified at the team hotel in Baltimore shortly after 1 a.m. and immediately left to be with his family. Smith posted on his Twitter account: ''I can't believe my little brother is gone...be thankful for your loved ones and tell them you love them...this is the hardest thing ever.'' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement: ''This is devastatingly sad, sad news. Torrey and his family are a close, special family, and our hearts and thoughts reach out to all of them. Our hearts ache today. We pray for Tevin, his mother, Torrey and the rest of the family.'' Smith is one of seven children of Monica Chante Jenkins. It was unclear whether Smith would play Sunday night for the Ravens against the New England Patriots. ''Torrey's priority is his family. We understand that completely,'' Harbaugh said. If Smith does not suit up, he will be replaced by Jacoby Jones. Now in his second season with Baltimore, Smith grew up in Virginia before attending the University of Maryland.
