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

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

Smith, a key part of the Ravens defense, was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's game when he crumpled to the turf while trying to cover a deep pass.

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

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith, who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury Sunday, has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Smith tore his left Achilles tendon in Sunday's 44-20 victory over Detroit. Harbaugh said Maurice Canady will be one of the guys in the rotation filling in.

The suspension does include the ramification of a loss of four games' pay, so the decision to drop the appeal is far from inconsequential, but Smith restructured his contract and only has a minimum base salary this year. 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. Smith, who played his collegiate football at the University of Colorado, was originally selected by Baltimore in the first round (27th pick overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. If they want to play, they're going be very vigilant about it and do a good job it. "[But] we have a lot of depth. It's the way we organize the whole program, to play our best in December and January", Harbaugh said. 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. "I think our guys take that very seriously, and that's the goal". "He'll probably be inside and outside as we go, by package and by need". "I'm really confident in that".
