Would you have cooked this pork roast? I'm worried it's bad.

I bought a pork roast at the grocery store Friday, haven't gotten around to cooking it until today. It has a "sell by" date of Feb 25 (tomorrow). When I took it out, it didn't smell BAD, but it smelled a little more, well...porky than usual. I washed it and smelled it close and it no longer did, so I figured it was fine. But I'm doing the Marcella Hazan pork loin braised in milk recipe and I think I may smell a teensy bit of an off smell. Honestly, probably not because I think I'm being paranoid. What do you think? I seriously don't want to chuck it, but also don't want to risk food poisoning. What would you do if you were me?
