Smith (shoulder) is absent from the Raiders' inactive list for Monday night's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was deemed questionable for Monday's contest after being limited in practice throughout the week. However, the shoulder injury that kept him out of Week 9's win over the Broncos will not keep him sidelined Monday. He will presumably take on his usual role starting at cornerback.

Smith (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was originally expected to miss at least a week after injuring his shoulder in last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. After participating in practice Thursday and Friday on a limited basis there's reason to be optimistic about his game status.

The Raiders are optimistic that Smith will only miss a week of action after he injured his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has not officially been ruled out of Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, but it does not sound like the Raiders plan on having him available at this point. However, the team sounds hopeful he will not miss an extended period of time. TJ Carrie will presumably fill in for Smith at cornerback if he indeed cannot play.

Smith is currently dealing with a shoulder injury, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was forced out of Sunday's win over the Buccaneers and unable to return. Head coach Jack Del Rio was unable to provide an update on his condition Wednesday, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the week. TJ Carrie would likely fill in for Smith if he is forced to miss any time.

Smith suffered a shoulder injury in Week 8's matchup against the Buccaneers and is questionable to return, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith is the Raiders' top cornerback, so if this injury is significant it could really shake things up for Oakland's pass defense. Travis Carrie and D.J. Hayden are in line to see additional snaps Smith as long as Smith is out.
