Marlon Humphrey's reps increased in Week 13 due to Jimmy Smith injury

Marlon Humphrey's reps increased in Week 13 due to Jimmy Smith injury

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the seven-year veteran will use the time off to serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Smith would then have been eligible for the postseason if Baltimore made the playoffs.

Losing Smith surely will impact the Ravens' stop unit that has been among the best in the National Football League, as it ranks third overall in scoring defense with only 17.2 points surrendered per game.

But they got some bad news on cornerback Jimmy Smith, who is now out for the season with a torn Achilles.

Belichick Apologizes to Bills Coach McDermott for Gronkowski Cheap Shot
It is understood Gronkowski will appeal the suspension , despite apologising for the hit after the game. It was a couple of times in the game and they're calling me for the craziest stuff ever.

"He has played at an All-Pro level this year", Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters.

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.

Yesterday, it was reported that Smith was declared out for the season by the team after tearing his Achilles during Baltimore's 44-20 home thumping of the Detroit Lions. 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.

Bryan Singer reportedly canned from Freddie Mercury biopic
However, this all occurred before Singer failed to show up on set after the Thanksgiving weekend. Bustle has reached out to reps for Singer for comment, but did not immediately hear back.

The Baltimore Ravens picked up their seventh win of the season and look to control the final AFC Wild Card spot. He started the Ravens' first 12 games and also had 26 tackles and nine passes defended. "I'm really confident in that". Smith will miss a total of 17 games over the past four seasons. He's a very instinctive player, so I see him playing a lot in the upcoming games.

Rookie Marlon Humphrey replaced Smith on Sunday and is expected to take over the starting role.
