Just two days after signing his rookie contract, Cincinnati Bengals rookie tackle Andre Smith went down in practice Tuesday with a foot injury.
According to a statement, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis expects Smith to miss at least the season opener against the Denver Broncos.
"Andre suffered a small fracture in his left foot during a non-contact drill," Lewis said. "Our medical staff tells me the injury will not require surgery. It’s too soon to closely predict how long it will be before he can return to practice, but it looks like he’s going to miss a few weeks."
We will have more reaction on Smith's injury a little later.
