Sean Smith DB KC 2 Days

Smith (groin) is active for Sunday's game in San Diego, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Smith's groin concern emerged for the first time since Week 4, but the cornerback has yet to take a seat this season. With 20 solo tackles, seven passes defended, and one interception through five contests, he's a decent option for those in dire need of DB output in IDP leagues.

Smith (groin) is active for Monday's game versus the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Smith's groin injury contained the cornerback to limited showings in practice this week. No matter, he's facing the Patriots for the first time since donning a Dolphins uniform as a divisional foe in his first four NFL seasons, during which he didn't pick off Tom Brady but tallied 10 tackles (seven solo) across four tilts.

Smith ran primarily with the Chiefs' first-team defense at the right cornerback slot during Wednesday's practice, the Kansas City Star reports.

Meanwhile, Ron Parker, who had been seeing first-team duty at the position, split work on the left side Wednesday with starter Marcus Cooper. While Smith has yet to officially reclaim a starting job, Chiefs defensive backs coach Emmitt Thomas noted that the cornerback is "having a pretty good camp," with the report suggesting that it may just be a matter of time before Smith overtakes Parker.

After replacing Ron Parker late in the first quarter of Thursday's preseason opener, Smith recorded a pick-six, ESPN.com reports.

Smith has been working with the Chiefs' second-team defense during camp, but he made a strong statement with his first play Thursday night and it wouldn't surprise us if he was reinstated as a starter in the team's defense sooner rather than later.

The Chiefs have continued to use CB Sean Smith with their second-team defense in training camp.

Smith's OTAs demotion wasn't the result of his June DUI arrest. He's in serious danger of losing his starting job to journeyman Ron Parker, with sophomore Marcus Cooper locked in at the other corner. Kansas City's secondary is quite suspect, with deficiencies they'll hope to mask via a dynamic front seven.

The Chiefs have demoted Sean Smith to the second-team defense at OTAs.

The coaching staff is presumably trying to send a message to Smith, who was recently arrested for DUI. With Brandon Flowers also away from workouts, Ron Parker and Marcus Cooper are working as Kansas City's starting corners. Pro Football Focus graded Smith as its No. 50 corner out of 110 qualifiers last year.

Updating a previous item, Chiefs RCB Sean Smith's three-year contract is worth just $16.5 million in base value.

The cornerback market was a huge disappointment this year. Smith got paid more than anyone, and his lowly $5.5 million annual average doesn't even put him among the league's top-12 corners. Smith received $7.465 million in fully guaranteed money. He can push the deal's max value to $18 million via incentives. Smith will be able to reenter the free-agent market at age 28.
