As Schefter reported, Smith is expected to serve his suspension immediately, after dropping his appeal. Players are allowed to serve their suspensions while on IR, such as Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon did this season, after being suspended four games. Jimmy Smith was already out for the season because of a torn Achilles suffered in the Ravens’ victory over the Lions yesterday. According to reporter Jeff Zrebiec  and multiple other sources, the Ravens and Smith learned about the pending suspension sometime last week.

By serving the suspension this season, Smith will be eligible to return at any time once he is healthy next year.
