Justin Smith's health outlook

The defending NFC champions generated some good news for themselves this week, reaching a two-year contract extension with veteran DE Justin Smith. When healthy, Smith is one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the game, and this deal will likely take him to the end of his NFL career. The next issue to tackle is whether or not he will be fully healthy by the time the season begins, after sustaining a serious arm injury late in 2012.
