The Baltimore Ravens are one of several 7-5 teams vying for a wild-card spot in the AFC. However, their chances of making it to the postseason just took a crushing blow.

All-Pro defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing policy. This will leave the Ravens without their defensive captain, as well as one of the best defensive lineman in football.

Ngata has moved to defensive tackle this year after playing most of his career at nose tackle. He's also played defensive end during his career, and he can play all three spots at a Pro-Bowl level.

Ngata is already owning up to his mistake, saying that it was Adderall that caused him to fail his drug test.
