Vikings tight end Irv Smith left practice Monday and later returned but did not participate the rest of the afternoon. Now, we know why.

Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell announced Smith underwent surgery on his thumb Tuesday. The team, though, is not ruling out Smith’s return for the start of the season.

Smith is 11 months removed from knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus, which kept him out of all of the 2021 season.

In 2020, Smith caught 30 passes for 365 yards and five touchdowns.

Ben Ellefson, Johnny Mundt and Zach Davidson are behind Smith on the Vikings’ depth chart at the position.

Cowboys fear foot fracture for WR James Washington .
The Cowboys’ new-look receiving corps will be lighter on experience this year, and a Monday injury may push this situation more in that direction. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Dallas Cowboys receiver James Washington (83) was injured Monday. After being carted away from practice, James Washington is feared to have suffered a Jones fracture in his foot, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. The offseason addition is going through an MRI. The exam confirming these fears would lead to a lengthy absence for Washington, who was set to be a key contributor for the Cowboys — especially early in the season.
