Andre Smith breaks foot at Bengals practice

This would only happen to Bengals. After top pick Andre Smith held out nearly all of preseason (because the Bengals were cheap bastards), he finally signed with the team late last week. And, of course, he got injured today by fracturing his foot.

Coach Marvin Lewis released the following statement on Tuesday:

"Andre suffered a small fracture in his left foot during a non-contact drill. Our medical staff tells me the injury will not require surgery. It's too soon to predict how long it will be before he can return to practice, but it looks like he's going to miss a few weeks."

The only problem is Smith has literally been around for about a handful of practices, so needless to say, being out for a few weeks likely means he won't be starting anytime soon. FAIL, Bengals.
