Draft Scout *Haloti Ngata News
01/05/15 - DT Haloti Ngata returned from his four-game suspension and made an immediate impact. Ngata had a sack and knocked down a key pass on third down. With rookie Timmy Jernigan out with a foot/ankle injury, the Ravens desperately needed Ngata to have a big game and he responded.
"I did make a mistake," Ngata said about the suspension. "I'm glad the team was able to get us in the playoffs, and hopefully I can help them with this playoff run. I'm just excited and thankful the team was able to get us into the playoffs so I can play again."
01/02/15 - DT Haloti Ngata had his exemption lifted by the Ravens Friday (Jan. 2) and will play in Saturday's playoff game against the Steelers.
12/29/14 - DT Haloti Ngata is set to be reinstated for the playoffs after being suspended for the final four games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy after testing positive for Adderall. With an injury to fellow defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, Ngata's return could not have come at a better time. "He's good. He's ready to go. We'll just figure out who else we've got and be ready to play," fellow defensive tackle Brandon Williams said about Ngata. Coach John Harbaugh expects Ngata to make an immediate impact in his return to the lineup.
12/04/14 - DL Haloti Ngata has been suspended for the remainder of the regular season by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
The league does not release the details of the failed test that triggered the suspension, but Ngata said he took Adderall, which requires a prescription on record with the NFL because it is on the league's banned substances list.
"I made a mistake, and I own this. I took Adderall and take full responsibility for doing this," Ngata said in a statement released by the Ravens. "I am deeply sorry and broken up over this. I let down my family, my teammates, Ravens fans and myself. My hope is that the Ravens make the playoffs, and I believe they can do this. And, then I can come back and help us win."
The Ravens (7-5) play at Miami on Sunday and have a difficult road to the postseason in a packed playoff race in the AFC.
"This is disappointing news for the Ravens. We are disappointed with Haloti, but no more than he is with himself," general manager Ozzie Newsome said.
Ngata is eligible to return to the roster Dec. 29, the day after the regular season ends. He will be available for the playoffs should the Ravens qualify.
11/17/14 - DT Haloti Ngata has managed to avoid many of the long-term nagging injuries that have hampered him in the past. As a result, he has re-established himself as one of the most dominant defensive tackles in the league. Ngata has started all 10 games this season and has 18 tackles, two interceptions and forced two fumbles. He also has two sacks. "Haloti is having a really standout year," defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. "I know sacks pretty much is usually kind of the outside guys a little more than the inside guys. But, part of the sack thing is because he gets a great push in the pocket.
