Four-game National Football League ban for Ravens' Smith over doping violation

Today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Smith tested positive for a still unknown performance enhancing drug, and that the NFL has given the Ravens corner a four-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

Smith and the team were made aware of the pending suspension last week and he chose to withdraw his appeal after suffering his torn Achilles against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

That injury did open the door for rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey to play, and he has lived up to expectations for the Ravens.

It's been a pretty tough couple of days for Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith. "It's different than it has been before", head coach John Harbaugh said.

It's a pragmatic decision, since he suffered a torn Achilles yesterday and was done for the rest of the season anyway.

The Ravens later revealed Smith has been nursing a sore left Achilles for much of 2017. We have a lot of good, young players. While he has technically only made one start in 12 games, he has recorded 25 tackles with two interceptions and eight passes defensed, the takeaways coming over the span of the previous three games. "It's the way we organize the whole program, to play our best in December and January", Harbaugh said. "Our offense needed to step up and they did, and I'm really proud of them for that". Now, the Ravens are riding a three-game win streak — their longest of the season — and holding down the final seed in the AFC playoff picture.
