Packers Playoff Bye Week Injury Report: Za’Darius Smith Officially Returns

GREEN BAY, Wis. – More than four months after he played in his one and only game this season, Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith returned to practice on Wednesday.

And what does coach Matt LaFleur need to see during three practices this week and three more next week?
