Bengals RT Andre Smith (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 10.

Smith will miss his second game in the concussion protocol. Eric Winston will continue starting in his place.
Nov 14 - 3:21 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 9 game against the Browns.

Eric Winston will get the start on the right side. Smith, in a contract year, has been one of PFF's worst tackles this season, grading out poorly as a pass blocker and run blocker. Smith hasn't had a strong season since 2013.
Nov 4 - 1:10 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith (triceps) is expected to be sidelined until training camp.

Smith missed the final five games of 2014 with a torn triceps. Prior to going down, his on-field play was in decline, leading the Bengals to spend their top two draft picks on offensive tackles. Missing the entire offseason is a concern for Smith given his conditioning issues. Still only 28, Smith could get one last big deal if he bounces back in the final year of his contract.
May 23 - 4:34 PM

Bengals placed RT Andre Smith on injured reserve with a torn triceps, ending his season.

OL Jamon Meredith has been signed in a corresponding roster move. The move officially ends an injury-plagued and ineffective season for the sixth-year first rounder. Smith is still only 28 (in January), however, and signed through next season. He'll undoubtedly rebound in a contract year. Marshall Newhouse will man Andy Dalton's right side for the rest of 2014.

Bengals RT Andre Smith suffered a torn triceps in Week 12 and is done for the season.

Smith will have surgery next week. The 27-year-old has had a down season, struggling with penalties, but he's been okay in pass protection, surrendering just four sacks. The Bengals will turn to Marshall Newhouse at right tackle. He's a replacement-level talent. Smith is due $5.6 million in 2015.

Bengals RT Andre Smith (arm) is done for the day in Week 12.

He suffered a left arm injury in the first quarter, which FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo later reported is believed to be a torn triceps. It's a big blow to Cincy's offensive line, which has dealt with myriad injuries this season.

Bengals RT Andre Smith was forced from Week 9 against the Jaguars with an ankle injury.

Smith was hurt on Mohamed Sanu's 19-yard touchdown early in the second quarter. He immediately ripped his helmet off in pain and walked to the locker room. Veteran Marshall Newhouse has replaced Smith opposite LT Andrew Whitworth.

Bengals RT Andre Smith (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 1.

Smith sat out the entire preseason, but is ready to rock for Sunday's opener. A mauling run-blocker, Smith will be leaned on in OC Hue Jackson's rushing attack.
Thu, Sep 4, 2014 04:30:00 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith missed the entire preseason with a concussion, but has "practiced quite a bit."

It sounds like he'll be ready for Week 1. Smith wasn't quite as dominant last season as he was in 2012, but remained one of the league's best right tackles. The 2009 first-rounder is still only 27.
Thu, Aug 28, 2014 05:40:00 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith (knee) has resumed practicing in full.

Smith "tweaked" his left knee in Cincinnati's third preseason game, but is ready to roll for Sunday's opener against the Bears. After calling himself "doubtful" on Wednesday, LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) missed his second consecutive practice Thursday. Anthony Collins will start opposite Smith in Whitworth's absence.

Bengals RT Andre Smith (knee) expects to be ready for Week 1.

"I feel a lot better than I did a day ago," Smith said Tuesday. "Believe it when you see it" is usually the safest mindset to take with the Bengals' mercurial tackle, but he should be ready to roll for the Bears in Week 1.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 08:53:00 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith "tweaked" his left knee in Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal against the Cowboys, but is expected to be ready for Week 1.

The "ready for Week 1" proclamation came straight from coach Marvin Lewis. Normally, we'd take Lewis at his word and move on without a second thought, but Smith has a way of making things complicated. Regardless, for now at least, he should be considered ready to roll.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 12:47:00 AM

Bengals activated RT Andre Smith from the active/NFI list.

The injury was never a concern, but the notoriously out-of-shape Smith's conditioning is. Smith backslided almost immediately upon signing his three-year, $18 million deal in April. Smith's attitude and effort remain question marks, even coming off his dominant 2012.
Mon, Jul 29, 2013 01:30:00 PM passes along "word" that RT Andre Smith showed up to training camp "in good shape" and appears to be at his playing weight.

Listed at 335 pounds, he showed up weighing 342. Smith has a long-running tendency to let his weight get out of control, going back to Alabama. It was feared after signing his three-year, $18 million contract in April that Smith had ballooned again, particularly after he skipped all of OTAs and minicamp. The Bengals wound up fining Smith for missing the mandatory minicamp. He opened camp on PUP, but only due to a minor calf injury.
