CFL | Smith finally practicing; looking good

Tue, 06 Jun 2006 06:57:58 -0700

Ed Tait, of the Winnipeg Free Press, reports Winnipeg Blue Bombers RB Onterrio Smith is finally practicing and he's looking good. Every practice Smith offers a little more evidence as to why he was a bona fide NFL tailback. "He's trying to get his timing down, more than anything," said Bombers' head coach Doug Berry. "I can see why he's been a good back in the past, he runs like a thoroughbred does: he has high knees through the line of scrimmage and carries himself really well when he's carrying the ball. He'll get enough work to get an evaluation of him. I haven't put any final numbers on how much Onterrio will end up getting."

CFL | Smith's foot injury keeping him sidelined

Sun, 28 May 2006 09:11:47 -0700

Ed Tait, of the Winnipeg Free Press, reports Winnipeg Blue Bombers RB Onterrio Smith (foot) remains sidelined with a foot injury. Smith said Saturday, May 27, his foot is about 75 per cent, but it now appears unlikely he'll suit up for Friday's first pre-season game, June 2, against the Montreal Alouettes. Asked yesterday if Smith's juicy credentials buy him extra time as he recovers from a foot injury that has kept him on the sidelines for seven days, Blue Bombers head coach Doug Berry was his usual up-front self: "I can't put him on the team if I haven't seen him perform," he said. "I mean, we're going to have to see him do it because we've got other guys that I have seen do it that are doing very well. I just can't see cutting them and running the risk of, it's not that Onterrio Smith can't do it, he probably can. But I haven't seen it, nobody's seen it here. We've heard about it, but we haven't seen it."
