Smith caught three of five targets for 24 yards during Saturday's 14-10 preseason win over the Rams.
Smith tied for the team lead in targets while finishing second in catches and receiving yards. His long gain went for just 12 yards, but his involvement, beginning on the team's second series, was notable after an explosive preseason debut last week. Smith has impressed as camp has progressed and will look to continue making his case for a roster spot Saturday against the Texans.
Smith signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Smith spent the entire 2018 season as a free agent after being released by the Jets in July. The 2015 second-round pick out of Ohio State has recorded 10 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown across 14 games in his NFL career. A pair of ACL tears have done damage to Smith's former explosiveness, and he likely will need to impress in other areas this offseason for any chance of carving out a depth role.
Smith worked out for the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Smith, a 2015 second-round draft pick out of Ohio State, has been a free agent since getting released by the Jets in July. Houston could be looking for additional depth at wideout in the event Keke Coutee's hamstring injury sidelines him for this week and beyond. Smith has recorded 10 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown over 14 career NFL regular-season games.
The Jets released Smith (knee) on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
A 2015 second-round pick, Smith suited up in just 14 games during his three seasons with the Jets, with only four of those appearances coming in the last two years. A pair of ACL tears were the main culprits in Smith's demise, as the knee injuries robbed him of some of the explosiveness that made him a dangerous downfield threat during his college days at Ohio State. The 26-year-old is still working his way back from April 2017 knee surgery and will probably need to impress in workouts before another team signs him to a contract.
Coach Todd Bowles indicated Tuesday that he doesn't anticipate Smith (knee) practicing until training camp, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Smith continues to work his way back from a torn ACL that landed him on injured reserve for all of the 2017 campaign. A second-round selection in 2015, he's never been close to living up to the billing, totaling 10 total catches over the first two seasons of his career. It's unclear how stable his roster spot is with the Jets entering 2018, but a good training camp showing would certainly help his cause.
Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Smith was waived with an injury designation last week and after going unclaimed, was placed on the Jets injured reserve list. It marks Smith's second ACL tear in three seasons, putting his NFL career into serious question.
Smith (knee) was waived with an injury designation by the Jets on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Smith underwent surgery on a torn ACL in April and was ruled out for all of the 2017 season. It's possible that the team moves him to injured reserve if he clears waivers.
Smith has been ruled out for the season after undergoing surgery on a torn ACL suffered earlier this month, ESPN.com reports.
Smith missed most of last season because of a serious knee injury, and he was only able to appear in nine games during his rookie year because of a rib issue. His absence is certainly a blow to a Jets receiving corps that lost Brandon Marshall in the offseason, though they drafted two wideouts in this year's draft to start filling the void.
Head coach Todd Bowles expects Smith to be in the mix for playing time at wide receiver, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
A 2015 second-round selection, Smith only has 10 catches in 14 games through two injury-plagued professional seasons. Despite the slow start to his career, he should have the chance to earn a key role on offense during training camp, as the Jets already traded Brandon Marshall and could part ways with Eric Decker. Other candidates for key roles out wide include Quinton Patton, Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall (suspension) and Charone Peake. The Jets hope Smith can at least emerge as a big-play threat, even if he doesn't earn an every-down role. He produced 30 touchdowns and 20.7 yards per reception on 121 catches during his college career at Ohio State.
Smith is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, according to Eric Allen of the team's official website.
Smith did not see the field for last Monday's game against the Colts despite not being on the injury report, but he is apparently ready to make his season debut after recovering from a torn ACL suffered last December. His return is certainly a boost to the Jets' receiving corps, though any kind of breakout performance is unlikely.
Smith (illness) was removed from the Jets' injury report Saturday and is set to play Monday night against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Smith -- who hasn't played this season since coming off the PUP list in early November -- was out sick Friday, but returned to practice in full form Saturday. As such, he's ready to see his first game action of the 2016 campaign Monday night against the Colts when he'll provide struggling QB Ryan Fitzpatrick with a much-needed vertical threat in the passing game.
Smith missed Friday's practice due to illness, The Star-Ledger reports.
It isn't clear what sort of illness Smith is dealing with, but he isn't expected to miss Monday night's matchup with the Colts. His participation in the Jets' final practice of the week Saturday ought to clarify his game status.
Smith (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Smith was activated from the PUP list earlier in the week, but isn't quite ready to return to game action. He'll have a chance to make his 2016 debut in Week 12 against the Patriots.
Smith (knee) has been activated from the Jets' PUP list.
Smith, who was a second-round choice in the 2015 NFL draft, sustained a torn ACL this past December, so he'll need to re-prove his health in order to make a run at a key role in the Jets' offense. In time, Smith could provide the Jets with the downfield threat they envisioned him to be when the team selected him last April, but a wait-and-see approach is in order with the second-year wideout from a fantasy perspective.
Smith (knee) will remain on the PUP list heading into Week 7, the New York Daily News reports.
Smith has yet to play this year, as he continues rehabbing from an ACL tear he suffered last season. However, he saw his individual workload increase on Wednesday. Head coach Todd Bowles is optimistic the 24-year-old can return to practice next week.
Smith (knee) was officially placed on the Jets' Reserve PUP List Sunday, which means he will not be able to practice or play for the team for the first six weeks of the season.
Smith tore his ACL back in December and was always a strong candidate to be placed on the PUP list. His absence shouldn't shake up the depth chart too much, especially with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker expected to dominate the wideout targets this season.
Smith (knee) hasn't been able to go full speed in training camp to date, NJ.com reports.
Smith's rookie season was a muddled mess, as he suffered fractured ribs and a punctured lung in training camp that wiped away all game action until Week 3. Thereafter, he found little chemistry with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, corralling nine of 28 passes for 115 yards and one touchdown, including no catches on three targets in the fateful Week 14 game in which he tore an ACL. Smith has been rehabbing in the interim, but considering the injury occurred on Dec. 13, it's no surprise that the PUP list is his current home.
The Jets placed Smith (knee) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Smith had torn his ACL last December and was not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The team has yet to detail any sort of timeline for his return, but he is considered doubtful to play come Week 1. Entering his second season in the league, the Ohio State product is expected to assume a larger role on offense in 2016 due to his open-field speed and ability to stretch the field in the passing game.
Smith (knee) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, making him "doubtful" to play in Week 1 against the Bengals, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.
The recovery timetable for an ACL tear has dwindled in recent years, but such injuries need to be explored on a case-by-case basis. Considering Smith's rookie campaign came to a close in Week 14, it's no surprise that the final stages of his rehabilitation will extend into training camp, at least, and potentially into the regular season. Once healthy, though, he'll have a prime opportunity to succeed in a receiving corps that's unproven behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Smith (knee) probably won't be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN.com reports.
Given that he tore an ACL in December, Smith is highly unlikely to be ready for camp. The real question is whether he'll be ready for Week 1, as it's possible he'll open his season on the PUP list, which would require him to miss the first six weeks. The 2015 second-rounder could still have a key role in the Jets' wideout-dependent offense once he's healthy.
