Eagles receiver DeVonta Smith’s lower-leg injury suffered in the Super Bowl 15 nights ago is still bothering him
Smith rang the bell before the 76ers’ game against the Celtics, and he was wearing a walking boot on his right leg.
Smith left the locker room after the loss to the Chiefs wearing a boot. While there’s no reason to believe the injury will limit his ability to participate in the offseason program, the presence of the boot means it’s a situation worth watching as the offseason continues to unfold.
Smith led all receivers in Super Bowl LVII with 100 receiving yards. He matched Chiefs receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster with the most catches in the game, at seven.
Meanwhile, Smith is a Celtics fan. After Boston won the game, and Smith received a signed jersey from Jayson Tatum, who scored a record-high 55 points last Sunday in the All-Star Game.
