    Smith excused indefinitely from team

    On the Star Tribune site and also said to have been on KFAN

    Embattled Vikings running back Onterrio Smith missed his second developmental camp practice in three days today and has been excused from the team indefinitely because of a league matter, head coach Mike Tice said this afternoon.

    "I really can't speak about any reasons why, or when he'll be back," Tice said after the last of this week's developmental practices at Winter Park. "It's in the league's hands, and we'll leave it at that."

    Smith, a two-time offender of the league's substance abuse policy, was detained April 21 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with a kit designed to circumvent drug tests. The league launched an investigation May 18 after news of Smith's possession of the Original Whizzinator broke in the Star Tribune.

    Looks like Onterrio is about to get Whizzinated in the rear by the NFL!

    Sounds like he may have smoked some of the most expensive reefer of all time........

    I guess that the league has something in store for him. He'll probably be forced to take a bunch of extra tests and I wouldn't be surprised if he failed one of them...

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    I guess we will have to see where this goes. I personally hope he doesn't get in trouble b/c I think he's a hell of a back. But if he does so be it b/c it was a stupid a$$ thing to do especially if you already have 2 strikes.

    Like an article link that I posted earlier today said.. " million dollar talent and a 10 cent brain "

    I guess until the league take some action then the team's hands are tied as to what they can do next regarding him

    This sounds like the beginning of the end to me. How do players with talent like his let something like reefer become such an important thing in their lives?
