Top Donovan Smith News

  • Buccaneers' Donovan Smith: Out Sunday

    Smith (elbow) is inactive Sunday against the Packers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Smith logged a limited practice Thursday, but followed that up with a DNP on Friday. He'll miss his second consecutive game and work to return in Week 4 against the Chiefs. In his absence, Brandon Walton should get the start left tackle.

  • Buccaneers' Donovan Smith: Not likely for Week 3

    Smith (elbow) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Packers.

  • Buccaneers' Donovan Smith: Missing Week 2 game

    Smith (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

    Smith had been listed as doubtful heading into the weekend after failing to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday, so it comes as little surprise that the left tackle won't be available for the Week 2 matchup. On a more fortunate note, right tackle Tristan Wirfs (abdomen) - who was listed as questionable - will suit up Sunday. Josh Wells is expected to step into the starting lineup to replace Smith and protect quarterback Tom Brady's blind side.

  • Buccaneers' Donovan Smith: Suffers hyperextended elbow

    Smith hyperextended his elbow during Tampa Bay's 19-3 victory at Dallas Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Coach Todd Bowles said Monday that how much pain Smith is able to tolerate will dictate the timetable for his return. It's good news for Tom Brady and the Bucs that Smith didn't suffer any structural damage and only figures to miss a few games, at most. Until he's ready to go again, Josh Wells will likely remain at left tackle, where he finished Sunday's game.
