Colts WR Taj Smith exploded for 140 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals in the preseason finale.
If Smith's performance seems like deja vu, it's because he blew up for 91 yards and a touchdown in one of last year's preseason games before a hamstring injury ruined his chances of making the roster. He's on the bubble again this year. QB Kerry Collins had a typical performance, completing 5-of-10 passes for 45 yards and a lost fumble. Fri, Sep 2, 2011 12:58:00 AM

Colts re-signed WR Taj Smith.

Smith had a nice showing in preseason action before tearing his hamstring in early September. His re-signing isn't exactly a boost of confidence for Austin Collie owners, hoping he'd be cleared to play this week.

Colts WR Taj Smith partially tore his hamstring Wednesday.

Smith is expected to miss five weeks, confirming that he'll be one of Saturday's final cuts. He needs to find a home with a thinner receiver corps.

Taj Smith led the Colts with three receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown against the Bills in Thursday's preseason game.

Smith isn't going to make the final roster, but he can always tell his grandkids about the time he owned Bills corner Ellis Lankster. Smith hauled in a 38-yard Curtis Painer bomb with Lankster draped all over him late in the second quarter. On the very next play, Smith beat Lankster again for a 43-yard score.

Colts practice squad WR Taj Smith was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of drunken driving.

Police say Smith was swerving and crossing the center line while driving downtown. Police also say he failed a field sobriety test and had a blood-alcohol content above the legal limit. This is probably Smith's ticket off the practice squad.

Packers signed Syracuse WR Taj Smith, Northwest Missouri State TE Mike Peterson, Wisconsin P Ken DeBauche, UConn LB Danny Lansanah, and Georgia RB Kregg Lumpkin.

Not a good landing spot for Smith; he'd need several injuries just to grab a spot on the practice squad. DeBauche has a real shot to beat out Jon Ryan.

Syracuse WR Taj Smith has declared for the 2008 NFL Draft.

A JUCO transfer, Smith caught 44 passes for 822 yards and five TDs in his only full year with the Orange. He's reportedly been timed at 4.42 in the forty, but turns 25 soon and has struggled with drops. Smith is likely no more than a late second-day pick currently who could rise in the pre-draft period.
