Smith (neck/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Smith logged a pair of full practices this week after being inactive against the Jets on Sunday. The veteran cornerback is likely a game-day decision at this point, with Gareon Conley and T.J. Carrie seeing more snaps if his is unable to play.

Smith (neck) was able to log a full practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith tallied two tackles in the Raiders season opener, but also came out of the contest with a neck injury. The issue lead him to be limited at practice last week, and ultimately miss Week 2's victory over the Jets. However, the team was likely exercising caution here in order to avoid a lingering injury, and he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, the veteran is on track to take the field Sunday against the Redskins.

Smith (neck) is inactive or Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Smith practiced twice during the week despite the neck injury, but was limited on both occasions and was still hurting heading into Sunday, prompting the Raiders to keep him out. With Smith sidelined, rookie first-round pick Gareon Conley could be pressed into a significant role right away in his NFL debut, while backup cornerback TJ Carrie could also see more snaps at the position.

Smith (neck) returned to practice Friday in a limited role, and is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was sidelined during Thursday's practice due to a neck injury, so his return Friday, albeit limited, is encouraging for his Sunday status. The veteran recorded two tackles in the team's season opening win over the Titans. TJ Carrie and rookie Gareon Conley (shin) are in line to see his snaps should he ultimately be unable to go against the Sunday.

Smith (neck) did not participate in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, so this doesn't bode well regarding his status for Week 2. If the 30-year-old is unable to play Sunday against the Jets, look for TJ Carrie and rookie Gareon Conley (shin) to take on larger roles.

Smith (neck) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith played 48 of 64 defensive snaps for the Raiders in Sunday's victory over the Titans and apparently suffered the injury during the game after not being on the injury report last week. The veteran corner was targeted four times and allowed two catches for four yards, with the Raiders hoping he'll be ready to go and can continue that level of play against the Jets on Sunday.
