Smith Out for Season

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota () -- The Minnesota Vikings took a crushing hit when they learned that starting running back Robert Smith will be lost for the season after tearing ligaments in his left knee.

Smith carried four times and lost one yard in a 15-13 loss to Chicago on Monday night. He got his left leg caught under him on the sidelines as he tried to turn on a sweep play, ending what had been his first injury-free season.
