Smith recorded 13 tackles (six solo) in Chicago's 31-28 loss to the Dolphins.
Smith led the Bears in tackles by posting the best fantasy performance of his rookie season. Coming into this contest, he had just 18 tackles in four games, but his production will likely ensure that he'll be added to many fantasy rosters in the upcoming week. Playing in the middle of a loaded defense certainly could provide Smith with the potential to become a weekly IDP starter.
Smith is listed as a starter for Monday's game against the Seahawks, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio reports.
Smith recorded one sack and three tackles in his first regular season game against the Packers despite playing limited snaps. The rookie first-round pick looks poised to establish himself as a key cog in a Bears defense that boasts tremendous talent up front.
Smith collected a sack and three tackles in Sunday's loss to the Packers.
Smith is still working his way into game shape after missing time with a hamstring injury, but he was able to post the first sack of his career. With Khalil Mack in the fold, Smith may be able to add a solid number of sacks to what should be strong tackle numbers, especially as defenses will be forced to game plan around Mack.
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) participated in position group drills during practice Wednesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Smith exited Tuesday's practice with left hamstring tightness, so it's good to see a quick return to the field , even if he isn't a full participant. The 21-year-old must continue to work his way into football shape after not practicing until last week due to his holdout. Smith appears to be trending in the right direction for Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, but expect the Bears to remain cautious if there is any real concern.
