Adding insult to injury, just after the Baltimore Ravens lost their top cornerback, Jimmy Smith, for the remainder of the season to a torn Achilles, it was also announced that he is facing a four-game suspension related to the use of performance-enhancing substances, the same type of suspension now being served by Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert.
Smith reportedly knew of his suspension last week and was planning to appeal, but will withdraw that appeal and serve the suspension while he is out for the year with an injury.
The suspension will ultimately cost him $182,352, which would've been $2 million if had not just restructured his deal with Baltimore in August.
Canady has played in eight games as a Raven.
As Schefter mentioned, Smith will not try to appeal the suspension, a practical move since he'll be able to undergo the punishment right away even while he's recuperating from the injury.Читайте также: Dialog says not losing Apple power chip business in 2018
Smith, a first-round draft pick in 2011, has been hampered by injuries throughout his career.
It's been a pretty tough couple of days for Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith.
But it does clear the decks for him next year, allowing him to get the time served the rest of this season.
The loss of Smith is a big hit to the Ravens (7-5), who control their playoff fate heading into the final four weeks of the regular season.
He was replaced in the lineup by Marlon Humphrey, a rookie cornerback, who was burned twice in the game on long passes.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
