Linehan optimistic about return of Kevin Smith for Sunday
Running back Kevin Smith, who has been dealing with a nasty high ankle sprain, was more active in Thursday’s practice than on Wednesday.
Smith missed last week’s game against the Vikings.
Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan seems confident Smith will be ready to go Sunday.
“Kevin’s practicing, he’s making progress ... We’re very positive about him being ready to go,’’ Linehan said.
