Shark Bites

Niners LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is inactive for the 2nd straight game. He entered the weekend questionable but appeared in only 1 practice this week -- a limited Friday workout. If rookie LB Fred Warner puts up another big game -- filling in for Reuben Foster in the middle -- Smith might not find a starting job available once his hamstring allows him to return.

Recent Shark Bites

Niners LB Malcolm Smith left Thursday night's preseason opener early in the 1st quarter with a hamstring injury. Smith began training camp on the non-football injury list because of a lower-leg injury. He also missed all of last season with a torn pectoral muscle. At this point, you should let Smith go undrafted in IDP leagues and make him prove that he can be a factor.

Raiders LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Chargers. The issue presents some durability risk, but he's OK to use at his normal IDP level.

Raiders LB Malcolm Smith is active for today's game against the Chiefs after sitting out Week 5 with a groin injury. Smith practiced all week but was limited each day, so we might see Oakland limit his snaps a bit. Smith's decreased production to date vs. last year makes him not worth the risk if you're trying to break a tie for your IDP lineup.

Raiders LB Malcolm Smith is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with the quad injury that cost him Week 5. He put in limited practices all week. We'll keep an eye on his status this weekend. But after Perry Riley played well in Smith's place last Sunday, we'd wait at least a week before using Smith in IDP leagues even if he's active and starting again.
