    Smith worked out for Tennessee on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Smith was with the Lions in training camp before being waived with an injury settlement due to an undisclosed issue in late August.

  • Saivion Smith: Waived by Lions

    Smith (undisclosed) was waived by Detroit with an injury settlement Wednesday.

    Smith played one game for the Lions last season, injuring his neck and suffering a concussion in Week 5 before spending the rest of the campaign on the practice-squad injured list. It's unclear if he's still dealing with effects of that issue. He'll be free to sign another contract once healthy.

  • Lions' Saivion Smith: Returns to Detroit

    Smith and the Lions agreed to a contract Monday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Smith suffered a significant neck injury in October of last season and proceeded to stay on the practice-squad injured list for the remainder of the campaign. The 25-year-old now will be back in Detroit for 2023 and look to carve out a role in the secondary on the active roster.

  • Saivion Smith: Deal with Detroit runs out

    Smith's (neck) contract with the Lions' practice squad expired Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Smith sustained an apparently significant neck injury when he was elevated for the Week 5 loss to New England. He then entered the concussion protocol before being placed on the practice-squad injured list with a neck designation Oct. 19, and he was never removed from this list before the expiration of his deal. Smith has now appeared in 10 regular-season games while spending time with Dallas, San Francisco and Detroit over the past three seasons.

  • Saivion Smith: Lands on injured list

    Smith (neck) was placed on the Lions' practice squad injured reserve Wednesday, Nolan Bianchi of The Detroit News reports.

    Smith suffered a concussion and had to be taken off in an ambulance after being elevated from the practice squad for Detroit's Week 5 loss to the Patriots. Lions coach Dan Campbell said Wednesday that the 24-year-old cornerback was clear of the league's protocols, but, "there [are] some other things we're looking at," regarding the after-effects of this injury, according to Jeff Risdon of USA Today. As a result of this transaction, Smith will not be eligible for activation on game day for at least the next four games.

  • Lions' Saivion Smith: Enters concussion protocol

    Smith suffered a concussion during Sunday's 29-0 loss to the Patriots, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Smith was involved in a scary incident Sunday against New England, where he was taken off in an ambulance after he collapsed on the field. Although the 24-year-old cornerback suffered a concussion in Week 5, it's relieving to find out that further tests revealed no issues with his neck, per Pelissero. Smith logged just two defensive snaps thus far in 2022, but he'll now have extra time to clear concussion protocols with Detroit having a bye in Week 6. The Lions return to action a week from Sunday against the Cowboys.

    Smith went down awkwardly after contacting tight end Hunter Henry at the line of scrimmage on the first play of Sunday's game, per Michael Giardi of NFL Network. The 24-year-old had to be loaded into an ambulance on the field, and the exact nature and severity of this injury should become clear following further evaluation.

    Dallas signed Smith to a reserve/future contract Monday.

    Smith closed out 2020 on the Cowboys' practice squad injured list, having suffered a fractured hand during a Week 14 road win over the Bengals. The 23-year-old received his lone start of the season during that contest, collecting 61 of his 75 total defensive snaps against Cincinnati.

  • Saivion Smith: Hits injured reserve

    The Cowboys placed Smith (hand) on the practice squad injured list Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Smith suffered a fractured hand during last weekend's win over the Bengals, and he'll now be forced to spend the remainder of the regular season on IR.

  • Cowboys' Saivion Smith: Dealing with fractured hand

    Smith returned to the game after suffering a broken hand in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Smith made his first career start on defense in Week 14. He briefly went to the locker room in the second half with a hand injury, but he returned to the field and finished the game. The Cowboys believe Smith may be able to play through this injury for the remainder of the season, although he'd likely require some sort of protection on his hand. Smith's practice reps may be limited this week, but considering he's already proven capable of playing through the issue, he should be in the lineup next week against the 49ers.
