Smith signed with the Eagles' practice squad Wednesday. Smith was waived by the Packers on Monday and made it through waivers unclaimed. The 23-year-old worked as Green Bay's return man before being let go, and he figures to provide depth for that position in Philadelphia.
Smith was waived by the Packers on Monday, Jim Owczarski of PackerNews.com reports. The Packers remarkably have accrued a negative total of punt return yardage through 11 games. Smith was brought in last month to help resolve the issue, but things have remained the same. Thus, the team has opted to move on and give Tyler Ervin a chance.
Smith has cleared the league's concussion protocol, Olivia Reiner of The Journal Sentinel reports. A full participant all week at practice, Smith is officially out of the league's concussion protocol and appears set to take the field Sunday against the 49ers. The 23-year-old cornerback will feature primarily on special teams and therefore carries very little fantasy value in IDP formats.
Smith (concussion) was a full practice participant Wednesday. Smith suffered the concussion Week 10 versus the Panthers but appears good to go coming out of the bye week. It's not clear if the 23-year-old has fully cleared the concussion protocol, but he seems to be on the right track.
The Packers promoted Smith to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The Packers tried out Chandon Sullivan as a kick returner in this past Sunday's win over the Chiefs, but they apparently weren't thrilled about his production and will retry Smith. Despite playing in just two games with the Packers, he has the team's best kick return (25 yards) this year. Look for him to field kicks immediately in Week 9 against the Chargers.
