    He is NOT milking this injury. And it has been just recently that Rod began to actually pratice with the team. His first day back on the field was October 24th. He has been working for monthas, but could not participate in full practices. The doctor that did his surgery could not believe that he actually played 16 games last season with the condition of his hip. The man has a work ethic that doesn't quit. How DARE you suggest the man is dogging it. Have some respect.

    So you'd rather he was on IR than PUP? (no) It ain't rocket science, he'd play if he could. He's not milking anything! Talking about his toughness in playing with that hip last year PROVES that he'd play if he could. At this point, the days of Rod being the bread and butter go to guy are probably over. His skills fine, but the best way he makes this team better is with his leadership at this point. Tough to miss his presence on the field (for me) with the recieving core we have now, so where would we put him anyway? Mostly, he's like an old friend, I want to see him go out on his own terms not by injury.


    Anyway, be patient, and realize Rod won't be propelling us to the superbowl this year.

    Give his body a year off... a full year + off.

    At this point, he has nothing to prove.

    I wouldn't want to risk his last hurrah.
    you think he would be able to make it next year? i have faith in rod but im wondering if he doesn't play this year will he get a chance next year. this is a young people's sport and in football years rod smith is super old. i dont want this to happen like jerry rice. we kept mister darius "i like to drop balls when im wide open" watts over the greatest receiver to play the game.

    i really do wish to see him play this year. go rod!!!

    milking the injury? That makes sense.

    That has got to be one of the dumbest things I've read yet.. "milking the injury".. because Rod Smith.. the all-time Denver Bronco WR has a TON to gain by "milking the injury." BRILLIANT.

    You are obviously one that is RIGHT on top of the facts and happenings of the NFL personnel around the league. This is top-notch stuff. You should write yourself an article, and get your comments published nation wide, because this is RIGHT on target. MILKING THE INJURY!!! Yes.. Yes.. thats what he's doing... milking it out, because there is a TON to gain from a 38 yr old WR to draw it out as LONG as possible.

    He's 37 years old ( I think) not 30 anymore and came off of major surgery. It took time. But now he's maybe 1 or 2 weeks from being able to be activated. Once he is and once he takes the field then we can talk. Just wait and see what happens.

    I have said it before. DO NOT COUNT OUT SOMEONE LIKE ROD.

    Footnotes. Veteran wide receiver Rod Smith is not expected to be activated this week. The Broncos have until Nov. 14 to activate Smith or shelve him for the season. Smith started practicing a week ago. He is trying to come back from hip surgery in February. ... Denver dropped to sixth in the NFL in pass defense after the loss to Green Bay. The Broncos remain the No. 32 run defense in the 32-team league. ... For the first time in his 12 NFL starts, quarterback Jay Cutler did not throw an interception Monday. ... First- round draft pick Jarvis Moss was inactive Monday because the Broncos activated Simeon Rice for the first time in three games. Rice made four tackles.

    So put him on IR, so that if he is able to come back, he wouldn't be able to since he's on IR? How do you know if he's "milking it?" What he went through isn't just something you hop out of the hospital bed and then go run some routes. Besides, he said it's hard for him to make cuts and run full speed in a game type situation. I wouldn't want him out there, as he probably wouldn't be able to do anything during game time.

    Oh yeah, he's 37 years old... takes a while longer to recuperate!

    He's getting there as fast as possible. If anyone wants Rod to be out there, it's Rod. He played for years with a degenerative hip condition. He's plenty tough enough. Jeez.

Smith has had more than enough time to heal....he has been practicing and since the chips have been down I think its time he gets back on the field.

    I say play through the pain at this point. There is no more injury, maybe just scar tissue. Play through the pain Rod....Get your butt on the field.
