Jacquies Smith cannot catch a break and neither can the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers re-signed restricted free agent Jacquies Smith in the hopes that he would be ready to play by the start of the season. Whether or not he can, is still up in the air.
In last year’s season opener vs the Falcons, Smith suffered a season ending ACL tear. After sitting out all season, going through surgery and rehab, it seems that he has not fully recovered as he was just placed on the active PUP list ahead of the start of training camp Friday.
Dirk Koetter said that the Smith’s injury is a minor set back and that the surgery is only a minor procedure.
