Ravens S Tom Zbikowski will be not be suspended from boxing after he passed a drug test earlier this week, his manager told the National Football Post.

Zbikowski had allegedly failed a drug test for marijuana after winning a bout on Saturday night, leading to a 45-day suspension from the Chickasaw Nation Gaming Commission. He re-took the test, which came back negative, according to his manager Mike Joyce.

"Tommy is very relieved," Joyce said. "Tommy works too hard and puts his body through too much to risk his NFL and boxing career by putting anything illegal in his body. Tommy has never used illegal or banned substances. He's a clean-living guy."
