Smith (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Bears' Week 1 injury report Wednesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Smith has been limited for about three weeks due to a tight left hamstring, missing the final three games of the exhibition slate in the process. With a full practice finally under his belt, he's trending toward an appearance Week 1, but it remains to be seen if he'll be inserted into the starting lineup immediately to begin his career.
Smith (hamstring) is being held out of Saturday's preseason contest against the Chiefs, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Smith has yet to see action this preseason due to a holdout earlier in training camp and now a hamstring injury. The 2018 first-round pick will hope to get some snaps in the Bears' final preseason game against the Bills to avoid entering his first NFL campaign with no prior professional experience.
Smith (hamstring) is not expected to play in Saturday's game against the Chiefs, Rich Campbell of The Chicago Tribune reports. Smith has only practiced with Chicago six times since his training camp holdout ended, and he's been limited due to his hamstring injury the past couple days. The team hasn't officially ruled him out for Saturday's contest, but it would be a surprise to see him suit up. He'll have his eyes on the team's preseason finale against the Bills next Thursday for his Bears debut.
Smith left Tuesday's practice due to tightness in his left hamstring, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. After missing all of training camp while holding out, Smith has only practiced with the Bears four times since signing his rookie deal last week, including two sessions in pads. He recently acknowledged that he still needs to work his way into football shape, and the injury suggests he isn't quite there yet. Head coach Matt Nagy doesn't believe the hamstring issue is serious, even saying that Smith could return to practice as soon as Wednesday. The eighth overall pick is hoping to lock down a starting job at inside linebacker next to Danny Trevathan.
