Kevin Smith RB DET Oct 14 '12
Beat writer Anwar Richardson believes Kevin Smith will be released if Jahvid Best (concussions) gets cleared.
Smith is a healthy scratch in Week 6. Per Richardson, the coaches "believe he didn't hit the hole hard enough, and lacked a burst of speed" during his short-lived stint as the starter this season. Smith is now clearly behind Mikel Leshoure, Joique Bell and Keiland Williams on the depth chart.
