Smith, who missed several games during the 2011 NFL season with an injury to the same ankle, was obviously unhappy with the injury to his ankle and was seen punching the bench in frustration. He left the game with zero yards on the ground, despite three carries.
Just on Friday, Smith told reporters that he's "never felt better" entering Saturday's game. Smith has spent his entire career with the Lions after being selected in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. After a solid rookie season with just under 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns, injuries have consistently followed the running back.
