REPORT: Za’Darius Smith out indefinitely after back surgery

The Packers linebacker had surgery in the middle of the week

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith could be sidelined for the rest of the season, after reportedly having back surgery this week.

The Packers have not yet released information on Smith’s status, but the loss will heavily impact the team going into Sunday’s matchup against Pittsburgh.

Smith has only played in one game this season but has started in every regular game for Green Bay for each of the last two years.
