Smith (knee) was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The fact that he was able to get in any degree of activity represents an improvement for Smith, considering he had missed every practice since exiting the Week 10 contest against the Bears with his knee injury. If he's able to suit up Sunday against the Saints, he'll resume his customary role backing up starter Joe Hawley.

Smith was forced out of Sunday's win over the Bears with a knee injury that has since been confirmed as a grade-2 MCL Sprain, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was starting in place of the injured Joe Hawley who was out with a knee injury himself. He was then replaced by Ben Gottschalk who had just been promoted from the practice squad on Saturday. Grade-2 MCL sprains typically keep players sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks. Hawley's status for Week 11 is unknown at this time, but Gottschalk will presumably get the start if he cannot go.
