Lions Place RB Kevin Smith on IR

The Detroit Lions announced that they have placed running back Kevin Smith on injured reserve.

Smith (thumb) had been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

A third-round pick (64th overall) out of Central Florida in 2008, Smith has rushed for 1,856 yards and 12 touchdowns, with 91 receptions for 824 yards and 1 touchdown during his 35 games with the Lions.

Smith started 25 of 29 games between his first two seasons in the NFL, but finished last year on injured reserve with a torn ACL. The Lions traded back into the 2010 first-round to select Jahvid Best, who leads the Lions with 380 yards and 4 touchdowns on the ground.

Smith will be a restricted free agent in the off-season.

To fill Smith's spot on the 53-man roster, linebacker Caleb Campbell has been promoted from the practice squad.
