Raiders cut veteran FB Keith Smith

NFL: Preseason-Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders have had plenty of surprising and depressing cuts today, and another one has just bitten the dust.

Fullback Keith Smith missed some time with injury at the start of training camp, opening the door for UDFA fullback Alex Ingold out of Wisconsin. Smith scored a touchdown against the Packers in Winnipeg, but it looks as though Ingold did enough to win the job over the veteran Smith.

There aren’t many teams which still use a fullback as the Raiders do, but Smith is solid at the position and should get another shot somewhere. As it is, it looks like Jon Gruden and the Raiders are rolling with the former Badger Ingold, who adds talent with his blocking and in the passing game as well.
