Report: Saints OLB Will Smith out for year with injury

New Orleans, La. - Will Smith is out for the year with an unspecified injury, according to our partners at the Times Picayune and nola.com. The story was first reported by profootballtalk.com.

Smith was playing a new position at outside linebacker this season. His injury comes at a time when the Saints are thin at the position. Victor Butler was lost during OTA's and Junior Galette and Martez Wilson have both been injured all preseason.

Galette and Wilson are both expected back for the start of the regular season.

On the roster the Saints have Jay Richardson, Baraka Atkins and undrafted rookie Eric Martin.

They could also search the waiver wire around the league as teams must cut their rosters down to 75 by Tuesday and 53 by Saturday.
