Smith was cut during a serious car accident near his home Friday night, according to The Sacramento Bee. Alcohol was not involved.

Smith was a passenger in a car that swerved to avoid a deer in Santa Clara County. The BMW wound up on its side and the driver was taken to San Jose Regional Medical Center with a "broken back," the Bee's Matt Barrows reported.

Smith had seven tackles and a sack against the Lions.
