Ravens CB Smith suspended 4 games for PED violation

Four-game NFL ban for Ravens' Smith over doping violation

National Football League suspended Ravens CB Jimmy Smith four games for violating the policy on performance enhancing drugs.

Smith, and the team likely, as well, were already aware of the pending suspension, as Gilbert and the Steelers were before it was announced, but it came out at that time because the cornerback chose to drop his appeal.

The Ravens later revealed Smith has been nursing a sore left Achilles for much of 2017.

Smith also suffered a season-ending injury late previous year, but the team feels more comfortable in their depth this time around.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the news, noting Smith was appealing the suspension but will now withdraw the appeal following his injury.

Smith had to deal with a sore Achilles for much of the season and it has led many to wonder if it had contributed to the tear. Smith started the Ravens' first 12 games this season and was tied for second on the team with three interceptions. He has only played two full 16-game seasons in seven years.

Smith's injury tainted an otherwise impressive afternoon for the Ravens (7-5), who played their most complete game of the year. "It's different than it has been before", head coach John Harbaugh said.

On the season, the Ravens rank third in total passing yardage allowed and eighth in yards per attempt.

Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey will replace Smith in the starting lineup when Baltimore plays at AFC North-leading Pittsburgh this Sunday night. "I'm really confident in that". "He's a guy we've always had a lot of hope for. he's a very instinctive player, I see him playing a lot in the upcoming games".
