Eagles first-round draft pick Devonta Smith will be out for a while after a training camp injury.

The Eagles announced today that Smith has a knee sprain, and the team referred to his status as “week to week.”

The regular season is six weeks away, and the Eagles’ statement would seem to suggest Smith should be ready by then, but they likely won’t put him on the field for the August 12 preseason opener against the Steelers, and whether we’ll see him in the preseason at all remains to be seen.

A Heisman Trophy-winning wide receiver at Alabama last year, Smith went to the Eagles with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, and the Eagles are counting on him to emerge as their No. 1 receiver as a rookie.

  1. This will be the start of it. His stilts are like kindling and he’a going to get killed over the middle.

  2. Obviously his size was a question mark coming in and unfortunately we might getting an answer to that question . Hoping he has a quick full recovery and can stay healthy going forward .

  3. DeVonta Smith reminds me physically of former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison…Marvin was listed at 6’0 185 Ibs. I think it turned out pretty well for Harrison and the career that he had. I’m pulling for this kid to succeed.
