  • Bengals' D'Ante Smith: Back in full Saturday

    Smith (back) played all 61 of the Bengals' offensive snaps during Saturday's preseason finale.

    Smith has been dealing with a minor back injury since early August, but this didn't seem to limit him as he filled in at left tackle for the entirety of Cincinnati's preseason game against the Rams. The 24-year-old should slot in behind 2019 first-rounder Jonah Williams on the Bengals' offensive line this regular season.

  • Bengals' D'Ante Smith: Dealing with back injury

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Monday that Smith is dealing with a back issue and is considered day-to-day, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Smith was carted off the field Friday after suffering an apparent lower-body injury, and he's since been diagnosed with a minor back issue. Once healthy, the 24-year-old will likely operate as the Bengals' backup left tackle behind Jonah Williams.

  • Bengals' D'Ante Smith: Carted off with injury

    Smith (lower leg) was carted off the practice field Friday after suffering an apparent right leg injury, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Smith injured his right leg during warmups Friday, and after trying to walk it off, was ultimately carted back to the locker room. The 24-year-old offensive lineman currently profiles as the Bengals' No. 2 left tackle behind starter Jonah Williams. Though the severity of the injury is not clear, losing depth along the offensive line would be unfortunate to say the least for a unit that has struggled to protect quarterback Joe Burrow in his first two seasons.

  • Bengals' D'Ante Smith: Returns to active roster

    Smith (knee) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    Smith began practicing again at the earliest possible opportunity last week and had a 21-day window to return to the active roster before being ruled out for the remainder of the season. The rookie, who has yet to make his NFL debut, was out on injured reserve while dealing with a meniscus injury. He should provide additional depth along the interior of the Bengals' offensive line.
