Draft Scout Telvin Smith News
11/28/16 - LB Telvin Smith led the Jaguars with nine tackles on Sunday, followed by Paul Posluszny with six. Both players had two of Jacksonville's 10 tackles for loss in the game against the Bills.
11/17/16 - OLB Telvin Smith was still in Valdosta, Ga., as of Thursday tending to matters related to the shooting death of his brother last Sunday. Head coach Gus Bradley said he wasn't sure if Smith would be available to play on Sunday, that Smith was on a day-to-day basis. "He's had conversations with me, with coaches, so he's staying on top of all the game-planning things, so knowledge-wise he's in good shape. I think it's just the matter of seeing where his mind's at. I think that's the big thing."
11/16/16 - LB Telvin Smith's status for the game is uncertain following the shooting death of his brother in Valdosta, Ga., on Sunday night. Smith was granted a leave of absence from the team to return to his hometown of Valdosta to attend to family matters. The earliest he would join the team would be Thursday, and it may not be until Friday. That would leave his playing status in jeopardy for the Sunday game in Detroit. Smith is a team leader and is second on the team in total tackles, just eight behind team leader Paul Posluszny. If Smith can't play, the Jaguars likely would move rookie Myles Jack to that spot. Smith did receive some good news Wednesday. Jaguars defensive coordinator Todd Wash told local media that Smith had a baby boy earlier in the day.
11/14/16 - LB Telvin Smith left the team Monday to return to his hometown of Valdosta, Ga., where the night before Smith's brother was shot and killed. Valdosta police have yet to provide many details on the shooting other than to say it happened at a residence, that they feel they have a motive and that they might have witnesses.
11/02/16 - LB Telvin Smith registered 15 tackles against Tennessee in Week 8, the most tackles in a game by a Jaguars player this season and tied for the eighth-most tackles in a single game in the NFL this year.
