The Ravens officially placed Smith (Achilles) on injured reserve Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Smith will thus finish out the season on IR while simultaneously serving the four-game suspension he was handed Monday for a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. His loss is huge for the Ravens, as Smith was one of the team's best players and will finish the season as Pro Football Focus' 10th-highest graded corner in pass coverage. In fact, Smith's absence was immediately felt once he left Sunday's victory over the Lions, as Marvin Jones -- who previously didn't do much of anything -- then went on to catch two passes of at least 40 yards on rookie Marlon Humphrey. Humphrey will presumably replace Smith in the starting lineup going forward.

Smith (Achilles) will receive a four-game suspension Monday for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Schefter, Smith was apparently aware of the pending suspension prior to Sunday's victory over the Lions, during which he suffered a torn Achilles. With season-ending surgery likely on tap for Smith, he won't appeal the suspension and will begin serving the ban in Week 14. That will allow Smith to open the 2018 campaign in good standing, assuming his recovery from the Achilles injury doesn't keep him off the field for the start of next season. Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey is expected to replace Smith in the starting lineup for the Ravens' final four regular-season contests.

Smith is out for the year after tearing his Achilles in Sunday's game against the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has been playing through an Achilles injury since early October, it seems as though the tendon finally gave way in Sunday's contest. Similar to Richard Sherman, who also played through a chunk of the season with a hurt Achilles before tearing it, the NFL will lose one of its best corners with Smith done for the year. Marlon Humphrey is in line to get extended snaps at corner for the remainder of the 2017 campaign.

Smith will not return to Sunday's game against the Lions after suffering an Achilles injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was carried off the field and ruled out shortly thereafter, with the fear being that he could be done for the season with a torn Achilles. Maurice Canady and Marlon Humphrey are likely to step in at cornerback opposite of Brandon Carr.

Smith (Achilles) is on the active roster for Week 12's showdown against Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was limited in practice all week, as an Achilles issue has kept the cornerback on the injury report since early-October. It hasn't prevented him from playing, however, as Smith will yet again suit up in search of his fourth interception of the season.

Smith (Achlles) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Texans, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has put in limited practice reps since sustaining the injury Week 4, but he has yet to miss a game this season. The 29-year-old should continue that trend this week after putting in a full practice session Saturday.

Smith (Achilles) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Smith sat out the Ravens' practice sessions on Wednesday and Thursday before being limited on Friday. Though he missed some time during the week he has yet to miss a game this season and should see his typical role on the defense.

Smith (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's only practice reps this week came in a limited session Friday, but the injury has bothered him for the better part of the season and still has yet to miss a game. The 29-year-old should be expected to play until the Ravens indicate otherwise, which would see Marlon Humphrey and Maurice Candy see increased snaps at cornerback.
