Broncos place Smith on physically unable to perform list
The Denver Broncos have placed wide receiver Rod Smith on the physically unable to perform list meaning he will miss at least the first five weeks of the season.
Broncos coaches are not giving up on a return by Smith, 37, who spent his college years at Missouri Southern in Joplin "mostly because he has earned the benefit of the doubt through past production, but also because No. 3 receiver Brandon Stokley is dealing with his own health issues and Nos. 4 and 5 receivers Brian Clark and Domenik Hixon have yet to make their first NFL catch."
