Will Smith exits preseason game with possible knee injury

Smith AP

As the Saints convert Will Smith from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 linebacker, his ability to make the transition hinges in many respects on his ability to play.

At least for right now, he can’t play.

Smith has gone to the locker room after suffering an apparent knee injury during Sunday’s preseason game against the Texans.    The injury happened on a snap that resulted in a sack of Houston quarterback Matt Schaub by Cameron Jordan.

The 2004 first-round pick left the field on his own power and was evaluated by trainers before heading to the locker room, presumably for further examination.

    Either way the saints are annoying, they have a finesse team and their coach covered up the bounty program and when he was suspended last year his team puts a big picture of him in the practice field..”do your job” yeah sean DO YOUR JOB and play by the rules you cheater. I’ll never forget jimmy graham celebration after he thought he’d beat the niners in the playoff game, wish the camera would’ve zoomed in when DAVIS made the catch! ahahaha

    And if you knew anything about football you would know that bounty programs have been going on for many, many years. The Ravens put a bounty on Mendenhall a few years ago and knocked him out of the game. Green Bay had a bounty program too and it got swept under the rug because there really isn’t anyone to penalize cause the majority of the team is owned by the citizens of Green Bay.

    Maybe he was getting a little too jiggy with it.

    And how can you call the Saints annoying ? Re you serious ? The most annoying person in pro sports is right now is your overrated QB Colin Kaepernick. I would take Russell Wilson over him any day. Your an idiot ninerswilldominatelikebefore. probably just a 17 year old teenie-bopper that just jumped on the San Fran bandwagon as soon as they started becoming somewhat relevant again after a decade and a half of mediocrity.

    oh no, how can i get jiggy with it now??

  11. saints12013 says: Aug 25, 2013 6:31 PM

    And the camera did get a close up on Vernon crying like a little sissy. But I guess he deserves to cry, I mean that’s like the only big moment thing he’s ever done in his 7 year career.

    Yet another example of why the Whiner “fans” are the worst on the planet.

    Let me tell you a little story
    all about how
    his tendon got ripped, turned upside-down
    He was tacklin’, reactin’
    3-point-stancin’ all cool
    playing some football inside of the Dome,
    when the O line, which was up to no good
    started protecting Matt Schaub from IRhood
    He got one little sprain and his coach got scared
    said you’re going with the trainers to the locker room

    Not a Saints fan but good luck to him, hate seeing a good player go down, on any team, especially in the preseason.

    Translation: I’m jealous that Saints won a recent Super Bowl, lol..

  21. johnclaytonsponytail says: Aug 26, 2013 9:18 PM

    Saints have won a Superbowl in the last decade whole San Fran has lost one. Don’t mistake our trophy for your unrelenting glee being a season champ

  22. saints12013 says: Aug 27, 2013 8:53 AM

    Wait, wait, wait, did a Bucs fan really even talk ? Since when did Tampa even become relevant again ? We might indeed come limping into week 2 and guess what we’ll still blow you out 41-10 like we always do. Newsflash Succaneers fan, your team is HORRIBLE !!!!!!!!!
