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.
The Baltimore Sun reported Smith and the team were made aware of the pending suspension last week. 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.
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.
It's a double black eye for Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith.

Smith was having the best season of his career, notching three interceptions and nine pass breakups while constantly covering the opponent's top wide receiver. He's appeared in all 16 regular season games only twice; past year, he was placed on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 14.
"He has played at an All-Pro level this year", Harbaugh said.
That injury did open the door for rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey to play, and he has lived up to expectations for the Ravens.
"I'm really not well versed on that". 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. They have given up the third-fewest passing touchdowns while recording the most interceptions-20-by a margin of four compared to the next-closest team.
