Smith (knee) signed a contract with the Dolphins on Sunday.
Smith suffered a torn ACL in October of 2018, though he appears to have returned to health and will join Miami to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster. He's spent the last three seasons with Kansas City, playing in 31 games while registering 36 tackles over that stretch.
Smith suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's game against the Bengals and will undergo surgery for the injury, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
The Chiefs placed Smith on injured reserve Monday, preceding the announcement of his ACL tear. With his 2018 season now at its end, Smith is slated to undergo a procedure before firing up the rehabilitation process with the hopes of retaking the field in 2019. He's on just a one-year contract with the Chiefs, however, so there is no guarantee the third-year linebacker will be in Kansas City next season.
Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve by the Chiefs on Tuesday.
Smith suffered a knee injury in Week 7 against the Bengals and now heads to IR for a minimum of eight weeks. The 25-year-old linebacker had been solid for the Chiefs this season, racking up 22 tackles (13 solo) and one sack.

Head coach Andy Reid said Smith sustained a sprained right knee during Sunday's victory over the Bengals, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Smith recorded three tackles in Saturday's preseason loss to Chicago.
Smith recorded two of his tackles on defense and another on special teams. He appears to be over the ankle injury that forced him to exit the team's second preseason game early. He's on pace to enter the season as a backup linebacker for the Chiefs.
Smith injured his ankle and is questionable to return to Friday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Smith injured his ankle in the second quarter of Friday's game. He'll have halftime to rest before deciding if he'll give it a go again in the contest.

Look for Dorian O'Daniel and Raymond Davison to see some extra reps as long as Smith is out.
Smith has decided to re-sign with the Chiefs.
Smith spent the majority of 2017 as a special teams player, seeing only 65 defensive snaps during the campaign. Following the signing of Anthony Hitchens, Smith should be slated for a similar role with the Chiefs in 2018.

Smith was promoted to the Chiefs' active roster Wednesday, The Kansas City Star reports.
Smith, an undrafted rookie out of Florida State, will help replace Sam Barrington and Sio Moore (both of whom were released Tuesday). He projects as the Chiefs' No. 4 inside linebacker.
