Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Jacksonville, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has been plagued by injuries this season, making just three appearances to date. The setbacks have resulted in just five catches (on five targets) for 75 yards and a TD, all of them coming in Weeks 1 and 2. With Smith sidelined, Ted Ginn will remain the unquestioned second wide receiver in the Saints offense behind Michael Thomas.

Smith (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's absence for the second straight day sheds doubt on his availability for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars. If the second-year receiver does sit out, Tedd Ginn and Deonte Harris figure to see an increased share of targets from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Smith (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has been managing a lingering ankle issue since Week 2. He was cleared for Sunday's win over the Buccaneers after having missed the previous two contests, but he was ultimately forced off the field due to an apparent aggravation of the injury. Before exiting, Smith played 19 snaps on offense but didn't make a mark in the box score.

Smith left Sunday's contest versus the Buccaneers with an ankle injury, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith didn't impact the box score before his departure, when he was deemed doubtful to return with just minutes left in the game. Considering he was playing for the first time since suffering an ankle issue Week 2, the Saints may be forced to consider another stretch of rehab and recovery for the second-year wide receiver.

Smith (ankle) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Smith will return from a two-week absence, joining Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn in three-wideout formations. The second-year receiver was a full practice participant Friday, following limited sessions the previous two days. Smith was far more interesting for fantasy purposes before Drew Brees suffered a thumb injury.

Smith (ankle) was limited at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was active back-to-back days for the first time since injuring his ankle during a Week 2 loss to the Rams. While he's trending in the right direction, his availability for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers won't be clarified until the Saints release their final Week 5 injury report Friday.

Smith (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

A lingering ankle injury caused Smith to miss the last two weeks of practice, but he's now made tangible progress in his recovery and is participating in a limited capacity. It's certainly a step in the right direction for the 2018 third-round pick, and if Smith is able to progress to full participation in practice before the end of he week he'll likely suit up for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers.

Smith (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith has missed two straight games due to his ankle injury, but he appears to be progressing in his recovery. As long as the second-year wideout is unable to go, expect Austin Carr to fill in as the No. 3 receiver in New Orleans. If Smith is able to upgrade to a full practice Thursday or Friday, it'll bode well for his chances of suiting up Week 5 versus the Buccaneers.

Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas, Rod Walker of The Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Austin Carr filled in as the No. 3 receiver for last week's win over Seattle, finishing without a target on 25 snaps. Smith is out for a second straight week and still hasn't returned to practice.

Smith (ankle) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

A spectator for the second practice in a row, Smith isn't looking especially likely to make it back in action Sunday against Dallas. While Smith sat out the Week 3 win over Seattle with the injury, Austin Carr earned the most noticeable bump in playing time of the Saints' depth wideouts but didn't draw a single target across his 27 offensive snaps.
