Smith (ankle) is listed as active Sunday in Philadelphia, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Smith will likely usurp Howard Jones for one of the starting defensive end spots, from which the second-year pro has totaled five sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and one touchdown this season.
Smith (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. If Smith misses a third straight game, Howard Jones will likely get another start. The two defensive ends have eight combined sacks this season, but neither is a viable IDP.
Smith (ankle) turned in a limited practice Wednesday, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Smith is trending in a better direction injury-wise than this time last week, when he missed that practice session entirely. Despite missing the Week 10 victory over the Cowboys, the second-year pro remains the Bucs sack leader with five. Smith's status for Week 11 will be further clarified after Thursday's practice session.
Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Smith didn't practice this week as he's been rehabbing a lingering ankle injury, so this decision shouldn't come as a shock. Smith has been a productive rusher this season, recording five sacks in seven games, so the Bucs will be forced to try and replace his production elsewhere against the Cowboys.
Smith missed practice Wednesday, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. The second-year pro did not get the new practice week off to an ideal start with respect to trying to retake the field in Week 10. Smith has been able to get good pressure on the quarterback to the tune of 5 sacks so far this season, and his presence was missed in a Week 9 loss where the Bucs failed to bring down Eli Manning. Smith's status will gain another measure of clarity following Thursday's practice session.
