The 28-year-old returned to play the Vikings' final two games of the season and was credited with five tackles while participating in his second Pro Bowl on Jan. 30.

"He moved pretty good," said coach Mike Zimmer, who listed Smith as having had limited participation in Thursday's short outdoor practice, the final one before Saturday's must-win game at Green Bay.
