An MRI test Monday determined the injury was only a bruise, the person told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins are not releasing details about the injury. Smith, a fourth-year pro and Miami's best cornerback, can become a free agent this offseason. The Dolphins, who are out of the playoff race, conclude the season Sunday at New England.
Smith has signed a $3.166 million, four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, said his agent, David Canter.|||||||
Smith was a second-round draft pick and the 61st selection overall in April. His deal is guaranteed for $1.363 million, including a $945,000 signing bonus, Canter said Friday. Smith, a two-year starter at Utah, is expected to contend with Davis for a starting position.
