  • Report: Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Suspended Four Games for PED Violation

Smith is the Ravens' third player to test positive for a banned substance this season.

It is an attempt to cope with a failing national economy and circumvent US sanctions. Venezuela is now lacking in fundamental needs such as medicine and food.

Smith has been dealing with an Achilles injury for most of the season. He's appeared in all 16 regular season games only twice; previous year, he was placed on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 14. Harbaugh said Maurice Canady will be one of the guys in the rotation filling in.

"I know the work he's put in this year, the expectations he had and the season he's been having", Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr said of Smith. "It's different than it has been before", head coach John Harbaugh said. If they want to play, they're going be very vigilant about it and do a good job it.

Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey will replace Smith in the starting lineup this week when the Ravens (7-5) travel to play the AFC North-leading Pittsburgh Steelers (9-2) in a Sunday night game. The defense forced three turnovers, the offense padded the lead in the second half and contributed field goals from 38, 46 and 51 yards. Smith will miss a total of 17 games over the past four seasons. "It's the way we organize the whole program, to play our best in December and January", Harbaugh said. "The guys are very vigilant for the most part on that, and sometimes they make mistakes. I'm really confident in that". "[But] we have a lot of depth. He'll probably be inside and outside as we go, by package and by need".
