Injured Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Daryl Smith probably won't play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will most likely be without injured linebacker Daryl Smith in Week 3, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. Smith has yet to play a snap in the regular season after suffering a groin injury during training camp.
"Daryl Smith probably will be a little more of work out on the field but not going to push him," Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters on Monday. "I would not expect him to play."
Smith, who is in his ninth season with the Jaguars, finished 2011 with 107 tackles, 3.5 sacks and an interception. He has started 122 games in his NFL career. Jacksonville certainly could use the help, as it ranks 23rd in total defense through two games.
