  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: No catches after season high

    Smartt failed to corral his lone target in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Ravens.

    After coming off back-to-back weeks with 20 or more offensive snaps and three targets, Smartt didn't get much playing time in Week 12, with no stats off only eight offensive snaps. The undrafted free agent saw his best game of the year in Week 11 with a touchdown off his sole 51-yard reception, but he has yet to record multiple receptions in a contest. On the season, the 25-year-old has seen 198 total snaps less than Donald Parham and Gerald Everett who both have tallied more than 300. He should continue to see a minimal role when the Chargers travel to New England in Week 13.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Finds end zone in win

    Smartt caught one of three targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers.

    Smartt's trip to the end zone was his first score of the 2023 campaign. The 25-year-old tight end played behind Donald Parham with Gerald Everett (chest) ruled out for the contest. Smartt saw three targets for the second straight week, so it's possible he'll continue to see increased involvement for the Chargers' offense that is in need of playmakers. He'll have the opportunity to build off this performance when the Chargers host the Ravens in Week 12.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Records 24-yard catch in loss

    Smartt hauled in his lone target for a 24-yard gain in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Titans.

    Smartt finished third among Chargers tight ends in offensive snaps in the Week 2 loss, with his 22 (34 percent share) placing him behind Donald Parham (31, 48 percent) and Gerald Everett (27, 42 percent). The latter two tight ends have been consistently more involved in the passing attack thus far, though Smartt recorded the longest reception of his young career on the Chargers' fourth-quarter touchdown drive.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Gets little use Week 14

    Smartt hauled in his lone target for an eight-yard gain in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Smartt has suited up in each of the Chargers' last four games, but the undrafted rookie out of Old Dominion logged just four snaps on offense Week 14. He's firmly behind Gerald Everett (56 snaps) and Tre' McKitty (40 snaps) in the pecking order at tight end.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Does little despite role increase

    Smartt caught two of his three yards in the 27-20 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

    Smartt was technically listed as one of the starting tight ends alongside Gerald Everett, but that clearly was a false flag as nominal No. 2 tight end, Tre' McKitty, wound up out-snapping the undrafted rookie. It's hard to imagine Smartt earning an extended role provided the others above him on the depth chart stay healthy.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Catches lone target in debut

    Smartt caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Chiefs.

    The undrafted rookie actually wound up playing 19 snaps in his debut and was the only tight end to see a target, albeit a short dump-off. Smartt's playing time will likely cease with the eventual return of Gerald Everett (groin).

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Set for debut

    Smartt (undisclosed) was activated off the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday.

    The Chargers never announced why the undrafted rookie free agent missed the first 10 games of the season, but it's possible Smartt could see a number of offensive snaps in his debut with Gerald Everett (groin) questionable and Donald Parham (hamstring) on injured reserve. The 24-year-old actually played five games at wide receiver in his final year at Old Dominion and finished fourth on the team with 17 receptions for 167 yards.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Designated to return from NFI list

    The Chargers designated Smartt (undisclosed) to return from the reserve/non-football injury list Monday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Smartt began the campaign on the NFI list due to an undisclosed injury, but it appears he could return to action before too long. With the move, the Chargers open a 21-day window for the tight end to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, he'll revert back to the NFI list for the remainder of the campaign.
