Baltimore Ravens Lose Cornerback Jimmy Smith for Season

Cornerback Jimmy Smith of the Baltimore Ravens suffered a season-ending torn Achilles

Smith was having a Pro Bowl-caliber season so far, leading the league with a 37.0 passer rating on balls thrown his way.

According to the report, Smith withdrew his appeal and will begin serving the ban immediately.

While Smith isn't on injured reserve, he can technically serve his suspension this season at a time he wouldn't have been playing anyway. The suspension will ultimately cost him $182,352, though it's less than the $2 million he would have lost had he restructured his deal with Baltimore in August.

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith is helped off the field during Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. He has been dealing with an Achilles injury for most of the season and rested it by practicing only once or twice a week.

Smith, a first-round draft pick in 2011, has been hampered by injuries throughout his career. He has only played two full 16-game seasons in seven years.

In relief of Smith, Humphrey saw a number of snaps in the game. Rookie Marlon Humphrey, a first-round pick out of Alabama, is expected to start opposite Brandon Carr when the Ravens visit the Steelers on Sunday.

The Baltimore Sun reported Smith and the team were made aware of the pending suspension last week.

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.
