Jimmy Smith suspended four games for PED violation

Still, Smith was having what many considered his first Pro Bowl season. Now, Smith's season will end on injured reserve, and ESPN reports that the suspension will cost him $182,352. "It's different than it has been before", head coach John Harbaugh said. "Ozzie told me about it a day or two ago, so we knew about it". He's appeared in all 16 regular season games only twice; a year ago, he was placed on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 14. Still, due to injuries, Smith has only played two full seasons, with the other 16-game campaign coming in 2015-16, when he recorded 54 stops in all, one sack, three interceptions, 10 pass defenses and one defensive score.

Tight end Darren Waller is now serving a season-long suspension for his second violation of the substance abuse policy.

"It's addressed by the league, mostly".

"The guys are very vigilant for the most part on that, and sometimes they make mistakes", Harbaugh said. "I'm really confident in that". To me, it's the players' responsibility. We have a lot of good, young players. Smith started the Ravens' first 12 games this season and was tied for second on the team with three interceptions. The Ravens signed free agent cornerback Brandon Carr over the offseason and used their first-round draft pick to select Marlon Humphrey out of Alabama.

Yes, Humphrey struggled early in the second half against Marvin Jones.

"He'll be in the rotation".

"Maurice is a versatile guy", Harbaugh said. "He has a high, high motor". "[But] we have a lot of depth". "So, we're not going to sit back and be sorry for ourselves".
