Vic Fangio Gives Update Regarding Roquan Smith.

"During their Week 1 matchup against the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears held both Roquan Smith and Khalil Mack to a certain snap count. While Mack hadn't played all preseason, Smith was dealing with an injury. Before the weekend, head coach Matt Nagy told reporters that he thought Smith earned himself some more snaps and now defensive co-ordinator Vic Fangio opened up about Smith's status for Monday Night Football. Fangio believes Smith should be ready to go and definitely improve on the eight snaps he played in during Week 1. «I have confidence in him, as far as being able to know what to do,» Fangio said. «Again, I think the thing that gets lost with all these players is he was here in all the OTAs and the mini-camps …
«He did a good job learning our system in that time. And then when he eventually got back.»
«His situation was different than Khalil's last week in that he was still nursing an injury,» Fangio said. «Khalil was just fighting newness and not playing. So we were a little cautious on that.»
