Another productive season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-23

Smith stacked up 48 tackles (28 solo), 8.0 sacks, four pass deflections and two fumble recoveries over 17 games in the 2023 season.

Smith played a little less than he did in 2022, but he still started every game and recorded at least 8.0 sacks for the fourth time in his five years with the Packers. Green Bay could decide to move on from Smith over the offseason, but they also could choose to retain the proven pass rusher.

Ready to go for divisional round

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Smith (ankle) does not carry an injury designation into Saturday's divisional round contest versus the 49ers, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers official website reports.

Smith was considered a limited participant at the Packers' walk-through Wednesday and he followed it up with a limited practice session Thursday, apparently doing enough to shed an injury designation for Saturday's game. The linebacker recorded a sack and a pass deflection in Green Bay's 48-32 win over the Cowboys in the wild-card round.

Limited Wednesday

Smith (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Smith has been dealing with the ankle issue for a couple weeks but was able to play through it in the wild-card upset of the Cowboys last weekend. After being estimated as DNP Tuesday, Wednesday's limited session is a good sign for his Saturday availability against the 49ers.

Doesn't practice Tuesday

Smith (ankle) did not participate at practice Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Smith played through his ankle injury during Sunday's win at Dallas, so it's possible the Packers are just giving him extra rest. If he can manage a full practice Wednesday or Thursday, he could potentially shed his injury designation prior to Saturday.

Ready for Sunday

Smith (ankle) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Wes Hodklewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Smith has been hindered by an ankle injury over the last week or so, but it seems as if that issue won't stop him from suiting up in the Packers' wild-card affair. The veteran pass rusher has logged 41.5 sacks in his five-year tenure with Green Bay, and he'll look to cause problems for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys' offense Sunday.

Begins week estimated as limited

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-10

Smith (ankle) was estimated as limited at Wednesday's practice walkthrough.

Smith sat out a pair of practice sessions last week but was ultimately able to suit up for Sunday's win against Chicago. Barring any setbacks, it seems likely that he'll be able to take the field against Dallas in Sunday's wild-card contest. Smith recorded 2.5 sacks over the final three weeks of the campaign and finished with 8.0 sacks overall this season.

Will play in key Week 18 game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Smith (ankle) is active for Sunday's clash against Chicago.

Smith entered the weekend deemed questionable after sitting out the first two days of Week 18 prep before logging a limited session Friday. However, he'll be able to suit up against the Bears in a game Green Bay may need to win in order to qualify for the postseason. Smith's ability to play is a boost to the Packers' pass rush, as he ranks second on the team with 8.0 sacks on the campaign entering Sunday.

Questionable for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Smith (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Smith could be trending towards playing in Sunday's affair, as he's gone from opening the Packers' week of practice with back-to-back DNPs to a limited session Friday. If the ninth-year pro is unable to suit up in Week 18, 2023 first-round pick Lukas Van Ness would likely shoulder an increased workload in Green Bay's outside linebacker corps.

No go Thursday

Smith (ankle) did not participate at the Packers' practice Thursday.

Smith has now opened the week with back-to-back absences, first at Wednesday's walkthrough and now at the team's first actual practice session Thursday due to an ankle injury. The linebacker will look to return to practice in some capacity Friday, after which he'll receive an official injury designation for Sunday's regular season finale versus Chicago.
