The Detroit News - [Full Article]

Kevin Smith's comeback of the year story was put on ice — literally. He spent the last three quarters with an ice pack taped to his right ankle.

"It wasn't that bad, it's just a matter of I couldn't cut," said Smith, who had rushed for 36 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards before the injury. "If I can't help, I can't play. That's the bottom line. I've got 10 days. In my mind, I'll be ready. We will see what happens."

He injured the ankle — a high ankle sprain according to the Fox Sports broadcast — flipping the ball to Calvin Johnson on a double-reverse.

"My X-ray came back negative, so that's a positive," Smith said. "That's just part of the game. I was just cutting back, and someone fell on it. It's disappointing. I felt like I had a good flow. It felt like we were doing good."

Fantasy Impact: 

Maurice Morris is back on the fantasy radar, and should have RB3/flex value while Smith and Jahvid Best remain sidelined.
