Ravens placed CB Asa Jackson (toe) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Ravens CB Asa Jackson was forced from Baltimore's Week 2 game against the Steelers with a concussion, and will not return.

It's bad news for a team already missing RCB Lardarius Webb (back). The Ravens now have precious little depth behind Jimmy Smith and Chykie Brown.

Asa Jackson has emerged as the favorite for the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback job.

Chykie Brown is Jackson's main competition. Jackson picked off Blaine Gabbert in Thursday night's preseason opener and has been the better player in training camp. He just needs to stay on the field; Jackson has been suspended in each of his first two NFL seasons. Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb are the starters.

Ravens CB Asa Jackson's eight-game suspension has ended.

Jackson, a 2012 fifth-round pick out of Cal Poly, has been suspended twice due to unauthorized use of Adderall. He'll contribute on special teams.

NFL suspended Ravens CB Asa Jackson eight games for violating the NFL's policy against performance enhancing substances.

The Ravens may have to cut the cord on Jackson after this one. He was banned four games late last season for the same violation of PED policy. Jackson was a fifth-round pick in 2012. He's a slot corner and special-teams type.

Ravens CB Asa Jackson has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

The Baltimore Sun hears it's an Adderall-related suspension. The fifth-round rookie had been active as a special teamer the past three weeks. He won't be eligible to return until the second week of the playoffs, provided the Ravens make it that far.

Ravens agreed to terms with No. 169 overall pick CB Asa Jackson on a four-year contract.

Baltimore is deep at cornerback with Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, and Cary Williams. Jackson's biggest contribution will come on special teams, where he's expected to compete for both kickoff and punt-return duties. Jackson averaged 14.7 yards on punt returns and 25.1 yards on kickoffs at Cal Poly.

Ravens selected Cal Poly CB Asa Jackson with the No. 169 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Jackson played plenty of off zone coverage in college and lacks a real physical nature to fight through blocks on the edge when facing the run. He has some wasted movements in coverage but has a great vertical and ball skills to make interceptions. Perhaps most of all, Jackson is a solid special teams returner with break away speed and plays to his timed 4.49 forty. He offers potential in the slot.
