Kenneth Dixon gets another two games on his suspension

Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon won’t play this season anyway, but he’s facing further NFL discipline.

Dixon has been suspended two games for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Dixon had already been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

It doesn’t really matter, because Dixon has already been ruled out for the entire season with a knee injury.

Dixon was drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round last year and had a solid rookie year, carrying 88 times for 382 yards and adding 30 catches for 162 yards. Now the Ravens will hope he can get himself straightened out and healthy, and back on the field in 2018.

  1. I complained loudly when the Raiders didn’t pick this guy. Even drafted him in the last round of my fantasy football draft cause I thought he was going to be something.

    Aaaaaaand that’s why I’m an accountant……

  2. Man… the NFL is on a roll suspending guys with no chance whatsoever of seeing the football field in 2016.

    I guess the next step is… I dunno… Consistently enforcing the rules and precedents for suspensions for players that may actually impact the game, regardless of what team they play for.

    LOL jk. Dreaming.

  3. Suspending him means he won’t get paid.

    As per games: Apples and Oranges.

    1) He got suspended for PED’s, so 4 game checks gone.

    2) He got suspended for Substance abuse (weed etc), so 2 game checks.

  4. can anyone seriously answer how it is 2 games?

    where is article 46 when you need it, hmmm roger?

    google “banned for substance abuse 4 games nfl” and you will
    see all the players get 4 games after failing the tests numerous times

    so, why does dixon only get 2?


    the cheating from goodell is fascinating

    the media just sits there and lets him do it, too

    you woulfd think article 46 would be used since this guy already
    cheated with roids

    yet, ezekiel elliott gets suspended for no reason because john
    mara wanted it that way to cheat

    i mean, wow

    we are talking mass corruption in the nfl

    umm, except substance abuse failed tests is 4 games, not 3

    just how disingenuous are you people and why does baltimore
    get special privileges?

    bisciotti: hey rog, if you want to keep being my guest at augusta, better make it only 2 games on dixon. woodhead was just lost for 6 weeks. how can we beat the pats or get that higher seed if we lose all of our best runninng backs?

    roger: oh, ok, steve. whatever you say. hopefully, no one notices my cheating ways.

    well, you are not a pats fan

    no real nfl fan would want a cheating commissioner and the league ruined

    i ask again: why is dixon the first nfl player to get 2 games instead of 4 and why does yet another raven seemingly get fewer games for what the cba says?

    so, he barely gives ray rice 2, brady 4 for a lie and framejob and
    elliott a suspension for being a victim of a blackmail scheme/attempt
    by tiffany thompson

    what planet am i on?

  7. just checking

    has anyone explained how dixon only got 2 games for what is
    a 4 game penalty as written in the cba?

    the crickets from the trolls who support goodell’s cheating,
    is deafening

  8. As for 2 vs 4 games. I’m pretty sure alcohol related is 2 games whereas other (i.e., still illegal) substances are four games under the substance abuse policy.

    Second, it doesn’t matter much if he has 2 games or 10. To him he doesn’t get paid. However, he is also on record as a first time offender. The NFL knows he wont’t miss play time but they did it anyway to put him on notice. For someone on IR who tied one on and got caught, I say that is far from cheating, it was fair and within in the policy.
