Ravens' corner back Jimmy Smith suspended four games for PED use

Jimmy Smith

Smith would have lost $2 million if he hadn't restructured his deal in August.

Smith was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions and will miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury. Like Smith, he was able to serve his suspension while on IR. Dixon had an additional two games tacked onto his suspension in September for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

According to Schefter, Smith chose to drop his appeal of his suspension after tearing his Achilles' tendon in the second quarter of Sunday's win. In 12 games played this season, Smith collected three interceptions to go with 26 tackles and nine passes defended.

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

Smith, the Ravens' first-round pick in 2011, matched his career high with three interceptions this season.

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. 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.

Rookie Marlon Humphrey replaced Smith on Sunday and is expected to take over the starting role.

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

The loss of Smith is a big hit to the Ravens (7-5), who control their playoff fate heading into the final four weeks of the regular season.
