No decision yet on Smith

Coach Brad Childress said he's still in a fact-gathering stage regarding safety Dwight Smith, who was cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and obstructing traffic last Thursday in downtown Minneapolis.

Asked if Smith's reported admission to police that he had smoked marijuana is a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy, Childress said: "Well, it would be if that was the case. I haven't seen that to be the case. Like I said, I just need to let that part take care of itself."

According to the police report, Smith admitted he had "just got done smoking some marijuana" at the time he was cited.

Childress said he would let the legal process play out and wait until he has all the facts before making any decision on possible team discipline.

Practice notes: Cornerback Antoine Winfield (shoulder), wide receiver Sidney Rice (ankle) and linebacker Dontarrious Thomas (groin) were the only players missing for the start of today's practice.

Winfield and Rice are expected to miss Sunday's game against Washington and Thomas' status is uncertain.

Ayo Don (or Sean), with Sidney out who is getting his reps-- Allison, Williamson?

I could get either on my waiver wire (or Ferguson) and wonder which of the three would get the most game time.
