Smith was hit at the end of an incomplete pass down the middle. Donnie’s throw hit a defender in the back of the helmet and Smith turned his head back upfield before taking a lick from Milloy. I was sitting in the end zone and saw this play right in front of me, and he got jacked the f*ck up and looked to be pretty foggy walking off the field.

Big Red released the bad news Friday that three starting offensive players are out for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers: RB Brian Westbrook (ribs), G Shawn Andrews (back) and WR Reggie Brown (groin).
The availability of wide receiver Kevin Curtis (sports hernia) and defensive end Juqua Parker (knee) are still unkown as they were listed as questionable. Curtis has a decent chance of playing as he had a full practice on Friday. Juqua sat out Friday’s practice and is very questionable. Tight end L.J. Smith will be available as a starter despite a sore back.
Big Red said this morning that quarterback Donovan McNabb (chest contusion), running back Brian Westbrook (ankle), tight end L.J. Smith (back), fullback Tony Hunt (concussion) and guard Shawn Andrews (back) would all miss practice this afternoon.
McNabb said was still sore but expected to play Sunday against the Chicago Bears. B West is also holding out hope that he’ll be recovered enough from the injury to his right ankle to play.
I’m optimistic about getting out there and being able to play. I’ve been rehabbing pretty agressively, doing everything I can to be out there on the field Sunday night.
According to sources Kevin Curtis has a sports hernia and will be out for a while and may require surgery. This is very bad news for an already questionable receiving corps. Especially with Reggie Brown having hamstring issues early on through camp and the first two preseason games.
If we were waiting to make a move at Anquan Boldin well now is the time to do it. Should be interesting to see what gets reported in the coming days. Stay posted for more details and updates on the situation.
UPDATE: Just heard 3-4 weeks, but if you ask Donnie and LJ, they might not agree.
