Cincinnati Bengals rookie guard D’Ante Smith will head to injured reserve so he can undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus.
Fast forward to Friday, Smith missed two days of practice with a knee injury and Carman has been re-activated and cleared to start against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Zac Taylor confirmed the injury and surgery, per ESPN’s Ben Baby.
Smith, a promising high-upside prospect who might just have starter potential, will be out through at least next month’s bye week.
For Week 6, if Carman can’t go for some reason, it will be sixth-rounder Trey Hill making the start at right guard.
