Detroit Lions cornerback Alphonso Smith suffered what may be a "significant" injury to his right shoulder, Tom Kowalski of MLive.com reports.
"We'll probably know later today, but it has the possibility of being a long-term thing, yeah," Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said on Monday.
A 2009 second-round pick out of Wake Forest by the Denver Broncos, Smith was acquired before the start of the season in exchange for tight end Dan Gronkowski, who the Broncos placed on injured reserve on Monday.
Smith has started 10 of 12 games this season, totaling 39 tackles and a team-high five interceptions, the highest total any Lions defender has had since the 2005 season (Dre Bly, 6).
