The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented publicly on Smith's injury, which was first reported by the website Pro Football Talk. Analysis: Smith, a former first-round draft choice, spent his first nine seasons as a defensive end and this year switched to outside linebacker in new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan's 3-4 scheme. Smith was a projected starter, as was fellow outside linebacker Victor Butler, who also is recovering from knee surgery that will sideline him most or all of the season.

Analysis: The 31-year-old Smith and 30-year-old Vilma, both veteran defensive captains who were implicated in the NFL's bounty probe, would have consumed about $23 million combined in salary cap space had they not agreed to new deals before the new league year - and free agency - began Tuesday afternoon.
