Latest on players including Wade Smith's return

Posted Aug 22, 2013

Head coach Gary Kubiak gave health updates on several players following practice on Thursday, including a possible return date for Wade Smith.

Head coach Gary Kubiak gave health updates on several players following practice on Thursday, including an imminent return date for starting left guard Wade Smith.

-G Wade Smith could return to the field as early as Monday, according to Kubiak. Smith underwent a knee scope on August 13 and has not been at practice.

“He’s doing really good," Kubiak said. "We don’t have him on the field yet. We’re pointing toward maybe Monday toward getting him on the field with Kap (Head Athletic Trainer Geoff Kaplan), so I think we’re in a two-week process right there. He’s going to be very close and his work has been excellent. He’s done a good job.”

-WR DeAndre Hopkins is still at Stage 1 of the concussion protocol. Hopkins began the five-step process after suffering a hit during a 13-yard catch in the Texans preseason opener against Miami.

-RB Arian Foster made progress during his second day of practicing and increased his reps from 10 to 20.

-DE David Hunter left practice early Wednesday after injuring his ankle.

“Hunter missed practice today,” Kubiak said Thursday. “He got rolled up in practice. He’s got a sprained ankle. I don’t know, I wouldn’t say it looks good for this weekend, but hopefully he’ll be back for Dallas. So he’s going to  miss a few days.”

-WR Alan Bonner, who tweaked his hamstring on August 2 in training camp, worked out on the side field while the team practiced.

“Yeah, he’s doing better,” Kubiak said of Bonner's progress. “He actually ran pretty good today. He’s definitely not going to play this week. The problem we’ve got with next week, I can sit here and talk like next week, but next week’s like Thursday. It’s like three days after, we play Sunday evening. It’s going to be a very quick turnaround. There’s not going to be much practice time and we’re going to be playing a lot of young players. It would be hard for me to speculate right now.”

-S Ed Reed will visit his surgeon in the next phase of his rehabilitation process. had the surgery in Vail with Dr. Marc Philippon.
