Until Smith finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

    Smith (knee) agreed to a contract with the Colts on Wednesday, Nate Atkins of The Indianapolis Star reports. Smith was out of football for the 2022 season after the Giants waived him last March with a failed physical designation.

  • Kaden Smith: Waived after failed physical

    The Giants waived Smith (knee) on Friday with a failed physical designation, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Smith played in just nine games during 2021 before landing on injured reserve with a knee injury for the rest of the campaign. As a rookie in 2019, he caught 31 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns across nine games, but he's registered just 21 receptions for 135 yards and zero touchdowns over the past two seasons. In a corresponding move, the Giants re-signed David Sills, who was an impending exclusive rights free agent.

    Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Sits out practice

Smith's knee has been a chronic issue throughout the season, and he hasn't appeared in game since Week 9 against the Raiders while he continues to manage the injury. His absence to begin Week 13 prep doesn't bode well for Smith's early chances of suiting up Sunday in Miami.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Won't play Monday

    Smith (knee) is inactive Monday against the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

The 24-year-old has played a limited role in the offense and hasn't seen a target since Week 3. With Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph seeing the vast majority of the work, Chris Myarick may see the snaps Smith misses out on.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Still sidelined by knee injury

    Smith (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

The third-string tight end will have an extra day to get healthy, as the Giants don't play until Monday; however, even that may not be enough if he doesn't return to practice soon.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Being evaluated for concussion

    Smith is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Smith left the Giants' Week 9 matchup with the Raiders in the first half with a head injury. If he is unable to return, Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph will be the only active tight ends for New York for the remainder of Sunday's contest.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Limited Thursday

    Smith (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Smith played through a knee injury in Monday's loss to Kansas City and has been limited in each of the two practice sessions ahead of Week 9. If he hopes to avoid the injury report, he'll likely need to practice fully Friday.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: No catches Monday

    Smith (knee) saw zero targets during Monday's 20-17 loss against the Chiefs. Smith was active in Monday's game against the Chiefs despite missing practice Saturday with a knee injury, but failed to see any targets. The 24-year-old tight end played 18 offensive snaps (30 percent) while Kyle Rudolph and Evan Engram took over a greater share of the workload. Although Smith figures to remain as the team's No. 3 tight end, the Giants have been heavily rumored to trade Engram during Tuesday's trade deadline, which could afford Smith more playing time. If nothing else, a banged-up Giants wideout group might force Smith to at least play a handful more snaps, even just as a blocker.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Doesn't practice Saturday

    Smith (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against Kansas City, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Smith put in limited practices Thursday and Friday before sitting out Saturday.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Limited at practice Thursday

    Smith (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice session. Smith played through a knee injury in Sunday's win over Carolina, but he's still dealing with the issue ahead of Monday's Week 8 matchup against Kansas City. Even if he's able to suit up against the Chiefs, he's unlikely to have a significant role in the passing game.

  • Giants' Kaden Smith: Clears injury report Friday

    Smith (knee) has cleared the injury report ahead of Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. As expected, Smith will once again play through the knee injury that he has dealt with all season. The 24-year-old is firmly supplanted behind Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph on the depth chart and has played a minimal role for the Giants offense this year, catching three passes for 33 yards across six games.
