Detroit Lions running back Kevin Smith missed practice on Monday with an ankle injury he suffered during Saturday night's preseason game, according to the team's website. Smith rolled his ankle against the Oakland Raiders and didn't return to the game. He suffered through a high ankle sprain in 2011. With Jahvid Best on the PUP list, Smith and Mikel Leshoure are the Lions' best options at running back.
Analysis: Kevin Smith's average draft position has been steadily climbing over the last few weeks, but this injury should cool his stock down a bit. He is a talented running back, but the injuries just keep piling up. It's hard to imagine Smith making it through the regular season in one piece, so draft him at your own risk. Mikel Leshoure, meanwhile, returned to action on Saturday and could be worth a flier in deeper leagues.
