National Football League suspended Ravens CB Jimmy Smith four games for violating the policy on performance enhancing drugs.
The suspension will cost Smith a total of $182,352, but he would have lost $2 million if he had not restructured his deal in August, according to ESPN.
Smith was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions and will miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury.
The Ravens later revealed Smith has been nursing a sore left Achilles for much of 2017.

The automaker invested $500 million in Lyft past year , but Lyft seems to have grown closer to Waymo and GM rival Ford recently. The vehicles are expected to be used as delivery vehicles, and to help transport people.
As Schefter mentioned, Smith will not try to appeal the suspension, a practical move since he'll be able to undergo the punishment right away even while he's recuperating from the injury.
It's a pragmatic decision, since he suffered a torn Achilles yesterday and was done for the rest of the season anyway.
Smith was having the best season of his career, notching three interceptions and nine pass breakups while constantly covering the opponent's top wide receiver. Smith would then have been eligible for the postseason if Baltimore made the playoffs.
The 29-year-old will forfeit game checks for the Ravens' final four games of the regular season. 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 first round pick out of Alabama has played really well all season, but we got a glimpse of what could be after Smith went down.
