The NFL has suspended Ravens CB Cary Williams two games for violating its personal-conduct policy, multiple media outlets, including the club's official Web site, reported Thursday.

Williams, 25, played five games for Baltimore last season, starting one. He notched eight tackles. The Ravens signed him off the Titans' practice squad on Nov. 24.

Williams' agent, Brett Lillibridge, told the National Football Post that the suspension stems from an incident that occurred before he joined the Ravens.

"Over a year ago while Cary was a member of the Tennessee Titans, he was involved in an incident that fell under the NFL conduct policy," Lillibridge said, according to the Post. "Through the appeals process with the NFL and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's office, Cary was suspended for two games. Although we're disappointed we did not win the appeal, we respect the league office's decision. Cary just wants to focus on the training camp with the Ravens and the remaining games in the regular season."

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team was "aware" of Williams' situation when he signed, according to the club's official Web site.  

Williams is expected to compete for one of the Ravens' reserve CB roles.
