Sean Smith: Clear from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had his suspension lifted by the NFL on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Smith spent time in jail for felony assault in March 2018 and was subsequently released by the Raiders. He remained unsigned before being suspended for the remainder of the season in November. The 31-year-old has started 122 games since being drafted during the second round by the Dolphins in 2009.

Sean Smith: Gets hit with suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has been suspended for the remainder of the 2018 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith spent time in jail for felony assault earlier this year, though he was never formally disciplined until now. He was released by the Raiders in the offseason after spending the previous two seasons with the club.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Released Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was released by the Raiders on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The 30-year-old cornerback has 123 NFL starts to his name, but the Raiders were never going to pay his $8.25 million salary for 2018 after he was benched for part of last season. In addition to his declining play, Smith is expected to plead guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of assault with great bodily injury, and he'll be sentenced to one year in jail with three years of probation, per Nathan Fenno of The Los Angeles Times. Even if the sentence is suspended or shortened, it's safe to assume Smith will face a suspension from the NFL. He may struggle to attract interest as a free agent.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Tallies two picks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded his first two interceptions of the season in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Smith added three solo tackles to go along with his pair of picks. The 30-year-old cornerback had logged only two passes defended prior to his big day Sunday. He did his damage across 59 defensive snaps (91.0 percent).

Raiders' Sean Smith: Active for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck/shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Smith was able to log two full practice sessions and was trending towards playing in Sunday's game all week. He will draw the start at cornerback opposite T.J. Carrie.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Smith logged a pair of full practices this week after being inactive against the Jets on Sunday. The veteran cornerback is likely a game-day decision at this point, with Gareon Conley and T.J. Carrie set to see more snaps if he's unable to play.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) was able to log a full practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Smith tallied two tackles in the Raiders season opener, but also came out of the contest with a neck injury. The issue lead him to be limited at practice last week and miss Week 2's victory over the Jets. However, the team likely was exercising caution here in order to avoid a lingering injury, and he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, the veteran is on track to take the field Sunday against the Redskins.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Unavailable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Smith practiced twice during the week despite the neck injury but was limited on both occasions and was still hurting heading into Sunday, prompting the Raiders to keep him out. With Smith sidelined, rookie first-round pick Gareon Conley could be immediately pressed into a significant role in his NFL debut, while backup cornerback T.J. Carrie also could see more snaps at the position.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Limited at Friday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) returned to practice Friday in a limited role and is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Jets.

Smith was sidelined during Thursday's practice due to a neck injury, so his return Friday, albeit limited, is encouraging for his Sunday status. The veteran recorded two tackles in the team's season-opening win over the Titans. TJ Carrie and rookie Gareon Conley (shin) are in line to see increased snaps should Smith ultimately be unable to go Sunday.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Sits out practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) did not participate in Thursday's practice.

Smith was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, so this doesn't bode well regarding his status for Week 2. If the 30-year-old is unable to play Sunday against the Jets, look for TJ Carrie and rookie Gareon Conley (shin) to take on larger roles.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (neck) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Smith played 48 of 64 defensive snaps for the Raiders in Sunday's victory over the Titans and apparently suffered the injury during the game after not being on the injury report last week. The veteran corner was targeted four times and allowed two catches for four yards last week. The Raiders hope he'll be ready to go and can continue that level of play against the Jets on Sunday.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Charged with assault
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was charged with assault on Thursday, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports.

It's unclear exactly how the charges against Smith will impact his ability to play this season. At this point, his status is merely in question, since it isn't clear yet how things will pan out.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Healthy after shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has recovered from offseason shoulder surgery, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Smith tore his labrum last October when diving for a pass in a game against the Buccaneers and underwent corrective surgery in January. Now healthy, Smith should open training camp without limitations.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith underwent surgery on his shoulder, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Smith played through his shoulder injury late in the 2016 season but it turned out he was unable to make a full recovery without surgery. He's expected to be healthy and able to participate by the time offseason practices begin.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) is absent from the Raiders' inactive list for Monday night's game against the Texans.

Smith was deemed questionable for Monday's contest after being limited in practice throughout the week. However, the shoulder injury that kept him out of Week 9's win over the Broncos will not keep him sidelined Monday. He will presumably take on his usual role starting at cornerback.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) is questionable to play Monday night against the Texans, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Smith was limited in every practice this week, but is still expected to play. However, if he's ultimately ruled out, look for both D.J. Hayden and TJ Carrie to see a significant uptick in snaps.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with Denver, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Smith was limited in practice due to a shoulder injury, and the team decided not to put him at risk of worsening the issue. T.J. Carrie and D.J. Hayden figure to see extra reps while Smith is sidelined.

November 4, 2016 09:41 PM
Raiders' Sean Smith: Questionable for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Denver.

Smith was originally expected to miss at least a week after injuring his shoulder in last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. After participating in practice Thursday and Friday on a limited basis, there's reason to be optimistic about his game status. If he's eventually ruled out, look for TJ Carrie to fill in at cornerback.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Limited on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) was limited at practice Thursday.

Smith's limited participation in practice is a bit of a surprise after the team indicated he was expected to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers. If he's able to notch another limited participation on Friday he may be able to give it a go come Sunday.

Raiders' Sean Smith: Expected to miss a week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders are optimistic that Smith will only miss a week of action after he injured his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Smith has not officially been ruled out of Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, but it does not sound like the Raiders plan on having him available at this point. However, the team sounds hopeful he will not miss an extended period of time. TJ Carrie will presumably fill in for Smith at cornerback if he indeed cannot play.
