According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, offensive tackle Andre Smith and cornerback Morgan Trent are not dressing for practice Saturday afternoon, which was rescheduled for 6:40 p.m. with thunderstorms in the area. Trent and Smith suffered season-ending injuries around the same time last year in early-to-mid November.
Smith, who showed up at camp at a reported 338 pounds, was in a walking boot as late at last month after having surgery to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his left foot. There is a general hope that he should be well enough to start practicing relatively soon.
Also the team announced that the Thomas Howard signing is now official. Unfortunately free agents aren't allowed to practice until the start of the new year, which begins August 4.
