Smith (ankle) was added to injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: A high-ankle sprain is usually a multi-week injury, and Smith had already been declared out for the year. It's very unfortunate timing for the undrafted rookie as he had just been promoted from the practice squad and was making his NFL debut when he got hurt.
Smith was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain Friday and is out for the season, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Smith sustained the injury during Thursday's loss to the Ravens, which was his first action of the season. The 22-year-old spent most of the season on the team's practice squad before being promoted to the active roster earlier this week.
According to head coach Adam Gase, Smith suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens and will be evaluated Friday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Smith was promoted to the Jets' active roster earlier this week and secured one-of-two targets for 12 yards in Thursday's contest. He could have had a much bigger night if not for a missed connection on a Sam Darnold deep ball in the second quarter, during which Smith appeared to slow down on his route and was subsequently overthrown. The severity of the receiver's injury will likely be known in the near future, and he will have a full 10 days to recover before the Jets take on the Steelers in Week 15.
The Jets officially promoted Smith to their 53-man roster Monday. Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: There was speculation that the Boston College product would be joining the roster earlier Monday, and that notion was made official. Smith brings depth to the offense as well as special-teams upside for the Jets.
The Jets are expected to promote Smith to the active roster ahead of Thursday's tilt against the Ravens, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Smith offers versatility and special-teams upside for the Jets, having been utilized as both a receiver and rusher during his time at Boston College. It looks as though the undrafted rookie will get a shot to make his NFL debut versus Baltimore on Thursday.
