Kenneth Dixon suspended another two games, this time, for substance abuse policy

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

Though Kenneth Dixon is on injured reserve, after suffering a meniscus tear, he has received another suspension from the NFL.

Before the injury, Kenneth Dixon received a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s Performance Enhancing Drug Policy. After sustaining the injury, and undergoing surgery to repair the torn meniscus, he’s received yet another suspension; this time, for violating the NFL’s Substance Abuse Policy.

Kenneth Dixon can serve his suspension now, even though he’s on injured reserve. This means his suspensions aren’t hurting the team necessarily, but this is nothing to gloss over. Their young, budding, star tailback has received multiple suspensions and suffered multiple knee injuries. The worry now becomes, how much more will the Ravens deal with before the cost-benefit shifts towards the wrong balance.
