Kansas City Chiefs running back Kolby Smith was injured in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 2nd, 2008.  Nearly a year later, he's back at practice.

Smith started the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list meaning he would be inactive (and not count against the active roster) for the first six games.  

Well, it's been six games and Mr. Smith is practicing.  The Chiefs now have three weeks from today to activate him or send him to IR.  If they choose to activate him, someone will need to be released to make room for him.  If he's sent to IR, he will be done for the season.

Per Josh Looney at KCChiefs.com, he has a "body by Haley".  He's been working out in no man's land since the start of training camp.

Judging by his numbers, Smith's time with the Chiefs have been average.  The former fifth round pick carried the ball 112 times his rookie year for a 3.6 average.  The following season he started three games and carried the ball 35 times for 300 100 yards.  The Chiefs offensive line hasn't gotten markedly better since then.

Looney describes him as a mix of LJ and Jamaal Charles.

Smith offers a wrinkle that the Chiefs rushing attack could certainly use," Looney writes. "He represents a runner unlike any others currently on the roster. Smith is a little bit Larry Johnson and a little bit Jamaal Charles, making him a perfect complement to the Chiefs two most active running backs."
