Smith spent time in the offseason working on his footwork, throwing motion and decision-making, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Smith completed 65 percent or his passes last season, ranking 10th in the league in that category. While he's never really had problems in the turnover department (throwing just 6 interceptions last season), the veteran quarterback doesn't throw deep balls very often, leading to defenders creeping down into the box. Smith should benefit from the offseason addition of Jeremy Maclin, and stretching the field more would benefit the running game as well.

Smith (spleen) has been cleared for football activities, reports.

Smith missed the Chiefs' regular season finale due to a lacerated spleen, but after a few months off, the signal-caller has been given the green light to resume playing. As a result, Smith was able to throw to receivers during Monday's opening voluntary offseason workout and should be fine heading into the upcoming campaign.

Smith - who missed Sunday's regular season finale against the Chargers due to a lacerated spleen - finished the 2014 season with 3,265 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. He added 254 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Smith posted another efficient season under center, but numbers that aren't eye-popping enough to make him a prime fantasy candidate. The deep ball isn't his specialty, leading to few big plays and ineffectiveness for most of the receivers. The Chiefs didn't have much for him among the wideouts this season, however, with Donnie Avery, Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins all suffering injuries and leaving the corps depleted. The late emergence of Albert Wilson could be beneficial in 2015, as he appears to be the favorite to take on the no. 2 receiver spot and gives the team a threat to stretch the field. Still, Smith doesn't figure to do much more than he has done over the past couple season with the Chiefs, and the rushing game with Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis still figures to be the primary form of offensive production for the Chiefs.

Smith has lacerated spleen and will not play in Sunday's game against the Chargers, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.

As a result, Chase Daniel is in line to start Sunday's game, and beyond -- should the Chiefs qualify for the postseason -- with team trainer Rick Burkholder indicating that the type of injury that Smith is dealing with typically takes about six week to recover from.

Smith completed 31-of-45 passes for 311 yards against the Steelers, adding two carries for 14 yards.

While Smith didn't finish the day with a bad statline, he and the Chiefs were unable to finish off drives and failed to score a touchdown on the day. Smith was also under constant duress in the pocket Sunday, as he was sacked six times and hit eight. He will look for a turnaround next Sunday when he faces a Chargers defense that allowed 35 points to a previously struggling 49ers offense Saturday.
