Ravens CB Jimmy Smith suspended 4 games for PED violation

Jimmy Smith

The 29-year-old will forfeit game checks for the Ravens' final four games of the regular season.

Now, he won't be getting paid for the first month of his absence.

Adding insult to injury, just after the Baltimore Ravens lost their top cornerback, Jimmy Smith, for the remainder of the season to a torn Achilles, it was also announced that he is facing a four-game suspension related to the use of performance-enhancing substances, the same type of suspension now being served by Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert.

Smith suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Sunday's 44-20 win over the Lions and is expected to be placed on injured reserve this week. Second-year running back Kenneth Dixon was suspended for the first four games of the season, but suffered a season-ending meniscus injury before the season began. "I think the league, the trainers, they bring people in to talk them about what the rules are and educate the guys", Harbaugh said.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed Monday that Smith will go on IR, and said the team knew of the pending suspension before Sunday's game. I didn't like it, and I was happy to sneak by with my C. To me, it's the players' responsibility to do it.

It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract. Ohtani was put up for bid Friday by the Pacific League's Nippon Ham Fighters for the maximum $20 million posting fee.

His silent protest has morphed into a commentary by many across the country against President Trump. Dreamers include nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as young children.

Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey will replace Smith in the starting lineup this week when the Ravens (7-5) travel to play the AFC North-leading Pittsburgh Steelers (9-2) in a Sunday night game.

In 12 games this season, Smith has recorded 28 tackles, three interceptions and nine passes defended.

Second-year cornerback Maurice Canady, who has largely played in the slot, could slide to the outside as a backup to Carr and Humphrey. We'll step up, and we'll still play at a really high level in the secondary.

"Maurice is a versatile guy", Harbaugh said. "I'm really confident in that".
