Smith says “it’s long odds” to return

Joel Smith met with the media here before practice today and seemed to indicate that he is likely to redshirt this season.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar said earlier that a final decision would come tomorrow. Smith said he only wants to return if he is “100 percent” having already suffered two injuries this season to his left foot.
He practiced Monday for the first time since re-injuring the foot in November and said he felt he was about 70 percent. Told that sounded like a lot of ground to make up in a day, Smith agreed.
“It’s long odds, yeah,” he said. “It’s definitely long odds.”
With just eight regular-season games left, Romar said the time to make a decision one way or another is arriving. Smith said he’s not worried so much about giving up a full season to play just a third of one. Instead, he said his bigger concern is simply making sure he’s healthy before returning and that that may not happen quickly enough to return this season.
“I’ve got to make sure my body is right before I just jump back into it,” he said.
