Jimmy Smith suspended four games for PED violation

Even if there was a good chance Smith would miss the last four games, the Ravens have been playing great football lately and are suddenly in a prime position to reach the postseason.

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.

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.

The system is very likely to intensify further during next the 24 hours. The ICG personnel reached out to those fishermen for assistance.

According to Schefter's source, Smith is out for the year and will withdraw his appeal of the suspension so he can begin serving the suspension immediately. He had played throughout the campaign despite pain in his Achilles, recording 28 tackles and three interceptions. "When he was out, it probably did make a difference". "[But] we have a lot of depth. We'll step up, and we'll still play [at a] really high level in the secondary".

Smith has played his entire seven-year career with the Ravens after being their first-round pick in 2011.

In relief of Smith, Humphrey saw a number of snaps in the game. Humphrey intercepted Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter. "That's just technique. He normally does better than that with technique", Harbaugh said.
