"We're going to get him more involved," Gray said per ESPN. "He'll be blitzing some. He'll be covering some. He'll be in the middle of the field. The thing that we're trying to do right now is, figure out what he's best at, and then put him in that position. Can he be one of the better safeties in the league, doing what we're teaching him here?"
Smith missed half of last season with a turf toe injury but still had 58 total tackles and a pair of interceptions.
Greenway was able to practice in full all week despite a wrist injury. Smith was limited with a toe injury that sidelined him for eight straight games before he returned last week.
Smith appeared in five games prior to the injury, recorded 34 tackles and two interceptions.
"There is a possibility that it could require surgery," Smith said, per the Star Tribune. "Hopefully it won’t and I’ll be able to come back."
