Smith told reporters on Friday that he's "never felt better" entering Saturday's game. Welp. Smith has spent his entire career with the Lions after being selected in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. After a solid rookie season with just under 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns, injuries have consistently followed the running back including injuries to his right ankle.
Smith, who missed several games during the 2011 NFL season with an injury to the same ankle, was obviously unhappy with the injury and was seen punching the bench in frustration. He left the game with zero yards rushing, despite three carries.
