#Packers standout pass-rusher Za’Darius Smith, who has battled a back issue, is playing today, source said. A huge lift for GB by one of their best players.

Smith missed most of training camp with a back injury and only returned to practice this past week in a limited fashion.
We’ll see how much he’s able to contribute this afternoon against the Saints.
Smith, who hasn’t missed a regular-season game over the last two years, posted the most sacks (26.0) by a player in his first two seasons (2019-20) with the Packers and is tied for No. 3 in the NFL in sacks over the last two seasons (2019-20).
