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.

Australian MP proposes to partner in parliament
The bill was introduced by Liberal MP Warren Entsch, a long-time advocate for same-sex marriage. An Australian MP has proposed to his partner in parliament amid a debate on marriage equality.

"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.

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.

USC to Take on Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl
While making the actual four team playoff would have been nice, this is still a solid way for both teams to end their season. Sam Darnold and the USC Trojans have landed in the Cotton Bowl 2017 and will face off against the Ohio State Buckeyes.
