The surging Baltimore Ravens will play the final quarter of the regular season without cornerback Jimmy Smith, who will be on injured reserve while serving a suspension for violating the National Football League policy on performance enhancing substances.
Due to the fact that he will miss the rest of the 2017-18 season and the Ravens only have four regular-season games left, Smith will withdraw his appeal and begin serving his four-game suspension immediately.
Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in Baltimore's 44-20 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. First-rounder Marlon Humphrey should take over for Smith in the starting lineup.
