Head Coach Matt Nagy told reporters Sunday he believes Smith missing camp could have a detrimental effect that lasts into the regular season.
“But I have full confidence in [defensive coordinator] Vic [Fangio] and his staff that, when [Smith] does get here, they’ll get him up to speed,” Nagy said. “… That’s why we all get paid as coaches — to try to help our players out as much as possible — and that’s kind of where we’re at.”
