Smith (groin) saw action for 19 offensive snaps during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Browns.
Smith had been dealing with a groin injury since July 31 but was able to come back healthy. The Auburn product is coming off a season in which he started 13 of 15 games for an improved offensive line, and now that he's healthy, he's expected to regain his role as the starting right tackle protecting Andrew Luck.
Smith was absent from Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Smith was taken by the Colts with the 37th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He proceeded to start 13 of the 15 games for which he suited up and played his part to help improve a previously poor offensive line. While there is no reason to consider his groin injury anything but minor at this time, expect the team to exercise caution before adding him back into practice in order to avoid an unnecessary setback.
