OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ten games into his NFL career, Torrey Smith has already distinguished himself as the most prolific rookie wide receiver in Baltimore Ravens history.

Were it not for his long dreadlocks, his record-breaking numbers would be even better.

Smith has 590 yards receiving this season, most ever by a Ravens rookie. He's also the first Ravens receiver to have two 150-yard games in a season, and his 165-yard performance last Sunday against Cincinnati was the third-highest in team history.

Smith would have had more yards Sunday if Bengals defensive back Adam Jones didn't pull him down by his dreadlocks at the Cincinnati 41.

Smith said Tuesday he has no intention of trimming his dreadlocks, at least not until a similar play occurs.

Baltimore hosts San Francisco on Thursday.
