EDGE Analysis

Smith was on the field for every single Raiders defensive snap Week 2 (64), as the team struggled to stop both the Falcons' rushing and passing attacks en route to giving up 35 points. The starting outside linebacker's next test will come Week 3 against an improved Titans squad.

Smith racked up eight tackles (four solo) and one tackle for loss Sunday against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Smith tied for the lead in tackles for the Raiders during their Week 1 victory, and the linebacker figures to continue putting up similar numbers moving forward. His next test will come Week 2 against the Falcons at home as Oakland looks to improve to 2-0.

Smith notched 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

The Raiders' middle linebacker was all over the field again on Sunday as he led all defensive players with 10 tackles. Smith has recorded 96 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception across 13 games this year, and he'll continue to be a very strong IDP option at the linebacker position.

Smith notched 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's win over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Smith led the team in tackles which has become a regular occurrence as of late. He made a huge impact on the game as he made plays all over the field, including two batted passes in coverage. Smith is sitting on 83 tackles, four sacks and an interception in 2015, and he holds solid IDP value at the linebacker position.

Smith agreed to a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Best known for his 2013 Super Bowl MVP heroics, Smith was unable to secure a starting job in Seattle's crowded linebacking corps. He'll have no such problems in Oakland, where he joins Khalil Mack and Sio Moore to form a group that's fast, young and talented. As the new starting inside linebacker for a defense that still has plenty of holes, Smith is a candidate to provide top-notch IDP production in 2015.

Smith (groin) is probable for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

Smith is ready to return to the lineup, though he might lose some snaps to rookie Kevin Pierre-Louis. He's probably a risky IDP consideration in his first game back, though he has shown the ability to pile up tackles when he gets the snaps.

Smith (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Smith will take another week to rest the injury, but a return next Sunday at Kansas City seems like a reasonable possibility.

Smith will likely miss another week, according to coach Pete Carroll, the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports.

Smith, who did not play Sunday against the Raiders, will continue to be evaluated throughout the week, but it appears he's doubtful to take the field against the Giants on Sunday. Smith has 27 tackles and two forced fumbles in seven games this season.

Smith (non-injury) is out for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Smith's absence is a disruptive one for the Seahawks, as he was already stepping in as a replacement for Bobby Wagner (toe) in one of Seattle's three-down linebacker roles. Bruce Irvin seems to be the next man in line, but any one of a handful of Seattle backups could get auditions in Smith's place Sunday, too.
