Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Goes on IR
Smith (groin) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Smith hasn't practiced since Aug. 5 due to a groin injury, so this designation is hardly surprising. Chris Olave, Michael Thomas and Rashid Shaheed project to be the team's three leading receivers for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Won't play Week 1
Smith (groin) will not play Sunday against Tennessee, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports.
With Chris Olave, Michael Thomas and Rasheed Shaheed all healthy, Smith would only be the fourth or fifth wide receiver if he played. He hasn't practiced since the first week of August and underwent a procedure at some point thereafter.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Expected to miss Week 1
Smith (groin) is expected to miss Week 1 versus the Titans due to a surgical procedure he underwent in August, Jeff Duncan of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Smith missed most of training camp and all of the preseason due to a groin injury sustained in early August, and while it sounds like his recovery timetable could allow him back on the field sooner rather than later, Week 1 may be a long shot. If New Orleans opts to place the sixth-year wideout on IR, he will need to miss at least four games. Keith Kirkwood and A.T. Perry will be in better position to handle depth snaps if Smith misses time, especially with No. 3 wideout Rashid Shaheed (groin) still not healthy.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Still not practicing
Smith (groin) was held out of practice Tuesday, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Smith hurt his groin during practice Aug. 5 and hasn't returned since. He didn't log any action during the preseason slate but still received a spot on the 53-man roster. The extent of Smith's injury isn't yet clear, and it remains to be seen if he'll be ready by the start of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Won't play Sunday
Smith (groin) won't play in Sunday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, John Hendrix of SI.com reports.
Smith suffered the injury last weekend, and while the issue is expected to be minor, it's not surprising to see the wideout sidelined as a precaution. His next chance to suit up for game action will arrive Sunday, Aug. 20 versus the Chargers.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Exits practice with groin injury
Smith suffered a groin injury and was forced out of Saturday's practice early, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Head coach Dennis Allen seemed to suggest the issue was minor, although he declined to give a relative timeframe of return. The sixth-year wideout is one of the elder statesmen of the group alongside oft-injured Michael Thomas, but provided the two remain healthy, the duo could be part of one of the better Saints receiving corps in recent memory, with second-year standouts Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed (groin) in tow, along with the athletically gifted sixth-round rookie A.T. Perry waiting in the wings. Early reports during training camp suggest the Saints offense is operating on all cylinders with new starter Derek Carr.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Adds one catch Week 18
Smith hauled in his only target for six yards during Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Panthers.
Smith logged his first target since the Week 12 loss to San Francisco. This also marked just his second catch over the final eight games of the season, as the fifth-year wideout's role sharply declined after the emergence of undrafted rookie Rasheed Shaheed during the second half of the season. Therefore, Smith finished with his worst season-long stat line since the 2019 campaign, recording 19 receptions (on 27 targets) for 278 yards and one touchdown over 15 games in 2022. The 2018 third-round pick also failed to record at least three touchdowns for the first time despite operating in an extremely undermanned receiving corps for most of the season. Smith is entering the second and final year of his current contract with New Orleans, and with ascending rookies in Smith and leading receiver Chris Olave on the roster, the 27-year-old figures to see another extremely limited role heading into the 2023 campaign....

Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Minimal role in loss
Smith logged zero targets during Sunday's 20-10 loss against the Steelers.
Smith did not record a target for the first time this season during this poor showing for the Saints' offense. The 26-year-old also logged a season-low seven offensive snaps while playing behind Kevin White (31), Chris Olave (36) and Jarvis Landry (37), who returned from his five-week absence due to an ankle injury. As a result, Smith didn't get a chance to benefit from the absence of Marquez Callaway (coach's decision), and he could be relegated to a deep reserve role against the Rams next Sunday....

Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Three catches in loss
Smith gathered in three of four targets for 29 yards during Monday's 27-13 defeat to the Ravens.
Smith tied with running back Alvin Kamara for the Saints' third most targets Monday. The 26-year-old also caught every ball thrown his way except for a tipped pass that was intercepted by Baltimore linebacker Justin Houston. While veteran Jarvis Landry (ankle) did not play for the fifth straight week, Smith still attracted fewer passes than fellow wideouts Chris Olave (nine) and Marquez Callaway (five). With Michael Thomas (toe) now set to miss the remainder of the season on IR, the 5-foot-11 Smith should once again amass a relatively moderate target share whether or not Landry returns against Pittsburgh on Sunday....

Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: One target in win
Smith failed to haul in his lone target on 38 snaps on offense snaps during Sunday's 24-0 victory against the Raiders.
Smith saw less than two targets for the first time this season during this blowout win. While his production was limited, the 26-year-old still played the most offensive snaps of any Saints wide receiver, as Jarvis Landry (ankle) and Michael Thomas (foot) remained out for their fourth and fifth games in a row, respectively. Smith caught 14 of his 20 targets for 235 yards and a touchdown over the previous five contests, and he should continue to play a prominent role if Thomas and/or Landry remain sidelined for next Monday's game against Baltimore....

Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Productive against Cardinals
Smith secured five of six targets for 59 yards during the Saints' 42-34 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.
The 26-year-old saw increased playing time for a third consecutive week with Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) sidelined, and Smith had a season-high five receptions while topping 50 yards during the high-scoring matchup. The 2018 third-rounder's role during the Saints' Week 8 tilt against the Raiders likely will depend on whether Thomas and/or Landry are cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Scores in spot start
Smith caught all three of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Bengals.
Smith benefited from the absence of three of the Saints' top wideouts Sunday, resulting in his first touchdown of the season. The 26-year-old got the start alongside Marquez Callaway, who finished with three catches (seven targets) for 36 yards. The collective statuses of Michael Thomas (foot), Jarvis Landry (ankle) and Chris Olave (concussion) will likely be in question heading into a matchup against Arizona on Thursday Night Football, which could result in another start for Smith in Week 7....
