Kevin Smith RB DET Oct 14 '1211 Comments

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.

albeit im an eagles fan, the lions have completely screwed smith... im 100% sure he would have put up better numbers then lackshore

Yeah, they are real idiots. I can't believe what they did the week that Leshoure first came back. Smith had been playing well, and many sites projected him to score 10+ Fantasy Points that week... Instead, he gets 0 touches and they just go completely with Leshoure. Still irked by that. Maybe this is why they struggle, even when they have a good team overall.

Good release him so he can get a shot elsewhere.

no one else will touch him. he was released before for most of a season by the lions. hes a great back but injuries have plauged him since rookie year.

Cardinals will pick him up. They are desperate for a good back.
