Smith (knee) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 10 tilt versus the Jets.
Smith failed to practice in either of the first two sessions of the week, so Friday's participation level did represent an upgrade. However, he appears to be a true game-time call at present. Kevin Pamphile would likely get the call in Smith's stead if the latter is ultimately unable to suit up against the Jets.
Smith, who exited last Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints with a knee injury, did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
The 24-year-old tackle joined Demar Dotson (hamstring) and J.R. Sweezy (knee) as members of the offensive line who either missed or were limited in the opening session of Week 10 prep. If Dotson is ultimately unable to suit up against the Jets this coming Sunday, Leonard Wester or Kevin Pamphile would presumably fill in to help protect quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Smith injured his knee Sunday against the Saints and is questionable to return.
For the time being, Leonard Wester will slot in at left tackle.
