Maintains prominent role in 2022

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-25

Smith posted 85 tackles (66 solo), 10 pass breakups and five interceptions,over 14 appearances during the 2022 regular season.

Smith continued his do-it-all role on the back end of Minnesota's defense despite playing in fewer than 15 regular-season games for the first time since 2016. While his tackling production took a dip following his career-best 114-tackle campaign in 2021, the 33-year-old safety still maintained a prominent role in pass coverage, matching his career high for interceptions while also posting double-digit passes defensed for the fifth time. Smith is set to incur a $19.4 million cap hit next season, so it's unclear if the Vikings may look to restructure his deal or move on from him in order to alleviate their difficult cap situation heading into 2023.

Playing Sunday

Smith (knee) is active Sunday against the Giants.

Smith's active status Sunday doesn't come as a surprise as it was reported earlier by Tom Pelissero of NFL Network that he would play. However, this makes the veteran safety's return to action official.

Should return Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-15

Smith (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Smith was a limited participant in practice throughout the week after he sat out the team's regular-season finale. Assuming he does take the field for the wild-card round, it'll certainly be a boost for the Vikings secondary.

Listed as questionable

Smith (knee) is questionable for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Giants, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Smith, who didn't play in the regular-season finale due to a knee injury, was limited at practice Wednesday through Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday. The veteran safety is a key part of Minnesota's defense, so his potential absence would be a significant blow.

Limited participant Wednesday

Smith (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

Smith sat out the Vikings' regular-season finale due to knee soreness and remains limited to start prep ahead of the wild-card weekend. The veteran safety is an integral part of Minnesota's defense and likely won't need to participate much in practice to be cleared for Sunday's matchup against the Giants. Either way, he'll have two more opportunities to log a full session before the team needs to make a decision on his status for the playoff matchup.

Out for regular-season finale

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-07

Smith (knee) will not play in Sunday's game against the Bears, Kevin Seifert of reports.

Smith developed what the Vikings believe to be some knee soreness following the team's practice Friday, per Seifert, and it appears Minnesota is taking the precautious route heading into the playoffs. The 33-year-old safety has recorded 85 tackles and 10 passes defended, including five interceptions, this season. No matter the outcome of this Week 18 contest, Minnesota is guaranteed to host a home playoff game during the wild-card round of the playoffs, so it will be worth keeping an eye on Smith's practice activity early on next week.
