Smith (knee) plans to delay surgery on his torn ACL in an effort to play in San Diego State's upcoming bowl game, Kirk Kinney of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. "He says he's going to try to play in the bowl game. He's going to try to rehab and put it in a brace and see if he can play...then he's going to get operated on after the bowl game. That's his plan right now," said Aztec coach Rocky Long after practice Monday.
Smith (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against New Mexico State, Adam Hunsucker of The News Star reports. "Garrett was throwing the ball a little bit in pregame (at Hawaii) but it was more of a lob type deal. We're going to leave his status as questionable and see how it goes this week in practice and go from there," said interim coach John Mumford.
