    Bengals OT breaks foot!

    Smith breaks foot

    Less than 48 hours after signing his contract, rookie right tackle Andre Smith suffered a fractured foot late in Tuesday's practice and is going to be out of action for what head coach Marvin Lewis called "a few weeks."

    In a statement released through the Bengals public relations department, Lewis said, "Andre suffered a small fracture in his left foot during a non-contact drill. Our medical staff tells me the injury will not require surgery. It's too soon to closely predict how long it will be before he can return to practice. But it looks like he's going to miss a few weeks."

    "A few weeks" could mean anything. Cornerbacks David Jones and Morgan Trent suffered foot fractures during this preseason and their rehab took about five weeks. But Smith's may not be as long because both Jones and Trent had surgery.

    I feel awful, that just sucks.

    Everything happens to the Bengals doesn't it?
    He probably won't be out way too long, but I didn't think he was even gonna start in the first several games anyway because of the holdout.

    And to think the big knock on Smith was his character.

    Update on how long he'll miss...

    Bengals rookie Smith out two weeks with broken foot
    Posted: September 1st, 2009 | Jason La Canfora | Tags: Andre Smith, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, LaMont Jordan

    Bengals rookie OT Andre Smith is expected to miss two weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

    The stress fracture, which Smith suffered Tuesday, likely will keep him off the field for seven to 10 days, and then he is scheduled to resume normal work.

    Smith, a first-round draft pick who just signed a contract with the Bengals, had drawn concerns about his conditioning even before his holdout, so getting him in game shape was going to take time.

    Smithís injury is very similar to the stress fracture suffered by Broncos RB LaMont Jordan, who rested his foot for a week and then returned to practice. But Smith carries considerably more weight as a tackle, so his recovery could take a little longer.
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on his Twitter account that Smith reported to Bengals weighing a whopping 364 pounds, which is 30 pounds above his normal playing weight. But he's already lost six pounds since reporting.

    So yeah, conditioning = MAJOR concern.
