  • Packers' Preston Smith: Sack streak continues

    Smith totaled five tackles (two solo), including two sacks, a forced fumble and a pass deflection in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Vikings.

    Smith has now recorded a sack in three straight games, and his four sacks on the season are tied for second among Packers defenders. He is now on pace to surpass the 8.5 sacks he finished the 2022 campaign with.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Good to go vs. Vikings

    Smith (illness) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus Minnesota, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    Despite missing practice Thursday with an illness, Smith will suit up for Green Bay in Week 8. The Vikings have run one of the most pass-happy offenses in recent memory this season, so Smith should see plenty of opportunities to rush the passer Sunday.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Misses practice Thursday

    Smith (illness) sat out of practice Thursday after not being listed on the injury report Wednesday.

    The linebacker's status is now in doubt for Sunday's game against the Vikings, and he will likely need to return to practice Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend. Smith has started all six of the Packers' games this season and recorded 22 tackles, including two sacks, and five total quarterback hits.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Gets second sack of season

    Smith recorded two tackles (one solo) including a sack in Sunday's 19-17 loss at the Broncos.

    Smith recorded his second sack in as many games Sunday after failing to register one over the first four games of the campaign. He hasn't reached 10 sacks in a season since his first year with Green Bay in 2019, and it still doesn't look like that's going to change in 2023.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Logs first sack

    Smith tallied three tackles (two solo), one sack and a pass deflected in the Packers' 17-13 loss to the Raiders in Week 5.

    Smith's sack was his first of the season after he was shutout the first four games. His pass deflection was also his first. The edge-rusher is now up to 20 tackles (14 solo) on the year. He'll rest during the Week 6 bye and shift his attention to the Broncos the following week.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Without a sack through four games

    Smith had five tackles (four solo) and one quarterback hit in Thursday's 34-20 loss to the Lions.

    Smith's slow start continues. He has yet to record a sack in 2023 after notching at least 8.5 sacks in each of the previous two seasons. Perhaps age is starting to catch up to Smith, who will turn 31 in November.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Adjusts contract

    Smith restructured his contract Saturday opening up close to $7 million in additional cap space for the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The Packers also restructured the contract of star cornerback Jaire Alexander, both necessary moves for the team to reach cap compliance. Smith was thought to be a potential cap casualty back in the pre-2021 offseason, but since then the 29-year-old pass rusher has tallied 17.5 sacks over the past two seasons and has become one of the team's most consistent pass rushers.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Tallies another sack in win

    Smith logged five tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Dolphins.

    After registering two sacks in Week 15 against the Rams, Smith collected one more in the Christmas Day matchup versus Miami. The veteran pass rusher is now just two tackles away from setting a new career high in that department, and he'll have an opportunity to reach that mark come New Year's Day when the Packers host Minnesota.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Snags two more sacks

    Smith had three tackles (two solo) and two sacks in Monday's 24-12 victory over the Rams.

    Smith is coming on late in the season, recording a total of four sacks over his last four appearances. He needs 2.5 sacks over the final three weeks to reach double digits in the sack column for the first time since 2019 and just the second time in his career.
