All signs yesterday pointed towards Roquan Smith not joining the team on their trip to London for their Week 5 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Now it's starting to sound like he might be away from the team for a long time.
There's been some "rumors" about Smith possibly having been arrested for drunk driving, however that seems to be false.
It seems Smith is dealing with some serious personal or mental health issues.
During ESPN's Tuesday edition of "Get Up", Dan Graziano reported that Smith hasn't been acting like himself at all recently and could be out for an indefinite period of time.
Graziano adds that the Bears want to give him as much time as he needs to be fully focused mentally and don't have any idea when he'll be back.
According to @DanGrazianoESPN, Roquan Smith hasn't been acting like himself for the last couple of weeks and could be out for an indefinite period of time. The Bears want to give him some time to let him deal with whatever he's dealing with. Bears don't know when he will be back.
