Smith, and the team likely, as well, were already aware of the pending suspension, as Gilbert and the Steelers were before it was announced, but it came out at that time because the cornerback chose to drop his appeal.

He has a chance to become the sixth Sooner Heisman victor and the first Heisman victor to begin his career as a "walk-on" athlete. He now leads the nation in passing efficiency rating, completion percentage, yards per pass and multiple other categories.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has confirmed that Smith tore his Achilles tendon during their 44-20 win over the Detroit Lions this past Sunday and he has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Smith planned to file an appeal after the Ravens were informed of the pending suspension last week, but he's now dropping his appeal because he's expected to end the season on the injured reserve list anyway. "He has played, I think, at an All-Pro level this year", Harbaugh said.

Smith is now the second important cornerback that the Ravens, however, have lost for the season, even if they have sought to rebuild the unit. Second-year running back Kenneth Dixon was suspended for the first four games of the season, but suffered a season-ending meniscus injury before the season began. He's a very instinctive player, so I see him playing a lot in the upcoming games. "It's the way we organize the whole program, to play our best in December and January", Harbaugh said. "I'm really confident in that".
Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey replaced Smith and was beaten for two deep passes, which were basically jump balls with Lions receiver Marvin Jones Jr. Smith will miss a total of 17 games over the past four seasons.
