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.
Nov 2 - 1:53 PM

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.
Sep 4 - 4:30 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.
Aug 28 - 5:40 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.

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.

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.

Bengals.com 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.

The Bengals are fining RT Andre Smith for his absence from mandatory minicamp.

Smith is tending to a personal issue, but whatever it is, it's not tugging at coach Marvin Lewis' heartstrings. "You have to be fair. There have to be ramifications," Lewis told FOX Cincinnati. The issue is reportedly unrelated to Smith's January arrest on weapons charges. He can be fined a maximum of $66,150 if he misses all three days of minicamp. Worries about Smith's post-getting paid behavior are already coming true.
Tue, Jun 11, 2013 01:22:00 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith did not show up for the team's mandatory minicamp that began Tuesday due to a personal situation.

Smith settled for a three-year, $18 million contract in late April. The absence isn't contract related and he's been in contact with the Bengals. Smith is expected to show up later this week. Coach Marvin Lewis is expected to address exactly why Smith hasn't shown up when he holds his press conference Tuesday afternoon.
Tue, Jun 11, 2013 11:44:00 AM

Coach Marvin Lewis expects RT Andre Smith back for next week's minicamp.

Smith missed all of "voluntary" OTAs while dealing with some "personal issues." Anthony Collins has been taking all of the reps at right tackle in his absence. Smith was re-signed to a three-year, $18 million deal in late April.
Thu, Jun 6, 2013 01:38:00 PM

Bengals RT Andre Smith has yet to appear at OTAs.

The recently re-signed right tackle has told the club he's dealing with "personal issues." Smith may well have a valid excuse for missing the "voluntary" sessions, but it's not a coincidence that a player who has never been known for his work ethic is missing the first team functions since signing his three-year, $18 million deal. Keeping Smith on the straight and narrow now that he's been paid is going to be a daunting task for coach Marvin Lewis.
