Smith underwent surgery on his shoulder, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Smith played through his shoulder injury late in the 2016 season but it turned out he was unable to make a full recovery without surgery. He's expected to be healthy and able to participate by the time offseason practices begin.
Smith was deemed questionable for Monday's contest after being limited in practice throughout the week. However, the shoulder injury that kept him out of Week 9's win over the Broncos will not keep him sidelined Monday. He will presumably take on his usual role starting at cornerback.
Smith (shoulder) is questionable to play Monday night against the Texans, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.
Smith was limited in every practice this week, but is still expected to play. However, if he's ultimately ruled out, look for both D.J. Hayden and TJ Carrie to see a significant uptick in snaps.
Smith (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with Denver, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Smith was limited in practice due to a shoulder injury, and the team decided not to put him at risk of worsening the issue. T.J. Carrie and D.J. Hayden figure to see extra reps while Smith is sidelined.
Smith was originally expected to miss at least a week after injuring his shoulder in last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. After participating in practice Thursday and Friday on a limited basis, there's reason to be optimistic about his game status. If he's eventually ruled out, look for TJ Carrie to fill in at cornerback.
