Smith is recovering from minor surgery after suffering a weight-room mishap earlier this month. It's unclear when he'll return, but all signs point toward Smith being ready for training camp.

Raiders DT Antonio Smith needed minor surgery following a recent weight room mishap.

The team did not provide any details on what the surgery entailed or exactly how Smith got hurt. All they said is that he's "fine." Smith will be an interior rusher for the Raiders' revamped defensive line this season.
May 9 - 5:36 PM

ESPN's Paul Gutierrez confirms the Raiders plan to use Antonio Smith at defensive tackle this season.

Smith was a 3-4 end with the Texans, but will move inside in Oakland's base 4-3. The Raiders are expected to use Smith in a Lamarr Houston role, allowing him to focus on creating pressure as an interior pass rusher. Smith has 27 sacks over the last five seasons, but is a liability against the run.

Raiders signed DL Antonio Smith, formerly of the Texans, to a two-year, $9 million contract.

Smith racked up 27 sacks over the last five seasons playing right end in Houston's 3-4 scheme, but may have to move inside in the Raiders' base 4-3 defense. Even at 32, Smith is an above average interior pass rusher and, along with new additions LaMarr Woodley and Justin Tuck, should improve an Oakland pass-rushing unit that struggled to get to the quarterback in 2013.

Free agent DE Antonio Smith will visit the Redskins before also making trips to St. Louis, Tennessee, and Oakland.

Washington gets the first crack at the 32-year-old. He can play in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense but has spent the past five seasons in Houston's 3-4 scheme as the right end. The Redskins could stand to upgrade over Stephen Bowen and Jarvis Jenkins. The Titans are implementing a 3-4.
Mar 11 - 6:23 PM

Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 Phoenix reports free agent DL Antonio Smith is drawing interest from the Falcons, Panthers, and Bucs.

The NFC South is hot after Smith, who also hasn't closed the door on a return to Houston. Smith, 32, can play in both 4-3 and 3-4 defenses as an interior pass rusher. He's racked up a respectable 27 sacks over the last five seasons.
Mar 11 - 10:52 AM

Free agent DE Antonio Smith reportedly has two visits lined up and four teams interested.

Smith's market has been nothing but crickets so far, so his agent is stirring the pot on the eve of free agency. Still, we're not surprised there's significant interest. Although Smith is 32 years old, he's missed a total of two games over the last five seasons while picking up 27 sacks during that span. He's an asset as an interior pass rusher in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. The Titans are expected to be in the mix.

Texans RE Antonio Smith suffered a sprained knee in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

The severity of Smith's injury is unclear. For now, he should be considered day to day. Smith is having a fine season opposite J.J. Watt, notching five sacks while grading out as the No. 13 3-4 end in Pro Football Focus' ratings.

The NFL has denied the appeal of Texans RE Antonio Smith's suspension.

The "suspension" is for two preseason games and the season opener, though only the latter is meaningful. Preseason suspensions are a joke. Smith, 31, will be back in Week 2. Although Smith is an effective player, the Texans shouldn't miss a beat with Jared Crick or Tim Jamison starting against the Chargers.

Texans RE Antonio Smith will have his suspension appeal heard Thursday.

The NFL will rule on Smith's appeal before Sunday's preseason matchup with the Saints. Smith was suspended for the remainder of August and the Week 1 opener for ripping off Dolphins LG Richie Incognito's helmet and swinging it at Incognito's face. We highly doubt Smith will win his appeal.

NFL suspended Texans RE Antonio Smith for Week 1.

Smith has also been banned for the remainder of preseason for his attack on Dolphins LG Richie Incognito in Saturday's exhibition game. The Texans open the season on Monday Night Football against the Chargers. The Bolts' swinging gate offensive line means Smith's absence shouldn't be too large a factor for Houston. Either Jared Crick or Tim will start in Smith's absence.

Updating a previous item, ESPN's Ed Werder reports the NFL is considering a "substantial" fine and "regular season suspension" for Antonio Smith following Saturday's helmet-strike incident with Richie Incognito.

A previous report claimed the league was only considering "up to" a two-week preseason suspension, which would be a true belly laugher. Preseason games are meaningless, and a 32-year-old defensive lineman missing some of them might actually serve to help the Texans and Smith. Smith's act versus Incognito was malicious, violent, and a non-football act with the sole intent of inflicting potentially severe bodily harm. Had Smith connected and drawn blood or fractured Incognito's skull, the NFL would have an enormous problem on its hands. A preseason suspension would be an embarrassment to "The Shield."

Texans RE Antonio Smith will be suspended up to two preseason games for Saturday's incident with Dolphins LG Richie Incognito.

While trying a bull-rush, Smith ripped off Incognito's helmet and swung it at the veteran guard's face. Somehow, no penalty was called despite an official positioned just a few yards away. It's the second time these two have tangled in an ugly fashion. Last year, Smith was fined for kicking Incognito. He said the notoriously dirty Incognito intentionally twisted his ankle. The suspension of Smith for two preseason games is still a laugher. Preseason games? The Texans and Smith are probably making jokes about the "suspension" privately.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer released a video Monday of Texans RE Antonio Smith ripping off Dolphins LG Richie Incognito's helmet in last week's preseason game and striking Incognito in the face with it.

Glazer, arguably the most plugged-in of all NFL reporters, suspects Smith will face a "severe" penalty and quite possibly a multi-game suspension. "I think it'll be more than a fine," stated Glazer. "I think we're looking at a suspension." Ex-NFL official and current FOX officiating analyst Mike Pereira agreed. It's a non-football act, and the intent was malicious. Per Glazer, the NFL has been made aware of the video and is currently debating its penalty.
