Buccaneers' Jacquies Smith: Out for rest of 2016 season with torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Smith (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee and will be placed on injured reserve, ending his 2016 season, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 26-year-old's season disappointingly comes to an end in less than a full game, with Smith having suffered the injury while working on the punt coverage unit on Sunday versus the Falcons. The talented defensive end entered the 2016 campaign with high expectations after tallying 13.5 sacks over the first 27 games of his pro career in a part-time role. Smith was expected to see his playing time expand this season as part of a burgeoning defensive line rotation that also includes 2016 second-round pick Noah Spence, offseason acquisition Robert Ayers and perennial Pro Bowl tackle Gerald McCoy. His absence for the balance of the season could spell extended opportunity for the talented Spence and undrafted rookie Channing Ward.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Smith suffered a knee injury in the Buccaneers' regular season opener against the Falcons and will not return, ESPN's Jenna Laine reports.

Smith went down in punt coverage, but the specifics of his injury are unclear at this point in time. The setback comes at a poor time for Smith as he's coming off an impressive preseason in which he logged four sacks, the most by a Buccaneer since 2000.

Buccaneers' Jacquies Smith: Shines in Friday preseason victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith totaled four tackles (all solo), two tackles for loss and two sacks in Friday's 30-13 preseason victory over the Browns.

The third-year pro put together a standout performance, often hounding the Browns' Robert Griffin III and even drawing a holding penalty on his first of two quarterback takedowns. Even if incumbent starter William Gholston retains the top left defensive end job, Smith figures to receive a heavy dose of playing time throughout the season in a variety of personnel packages. Smith has proven highly capable of making the most of his opportunities over this first pair of Bucs seasons, garnering 13.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, and three passes defensed in 27 games. Given the aggressive nature of new defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme, the Missouri product could be in line for his best numbers yet in 2016.

Buccaneers' Jacquies Smith: Full participant in opening camp practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Smith was a full participant in Thursday's opening training camp session after recovering from shoulder surgery throughout the offseason, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The third-year defensive end was excited about his return to on-field work and the opportunity to start building on a productive 2015 campaign that saw him tally 37 tackles (including two for loss), seven sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and a pass defensed in 12 games. "It feels good," Smith said of his first day back on the field. "Obviously I missed OTAs and stuff, and I've been missing being out their with the guys and doing my part. It's a great time to be back. The energy level, the vibe, I'm happy to be back." The 26-year-old slots into a defensive end rotation that packs plenty of pass-rushing potential, given that it will also include free-agent acquisition Robert Ayers and 2016 second-round pick Noah Spence.
