  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Hardly involved in loss

    Smartt caught two of his three targets for 14 yards in the 13-12 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Smartt played 294 offensive snaps in 2023, often filling in for Donald Parham as the team's No. 2 tight end when the big-bodied target was injured. The second-year undrafted free agent hasn't done much in the NFL to date, and it's possibly Smartt's roster spot could be in jeopardy next season as the Chargers undergo a complete transformation in the front office and coaching staff.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Active for season finale

    Smartt (shoulder) isn't among the Chargers' inactives for Sunday's matchup against Kansas City.

    A shoulder issue kept Smartt to a pair of limited practice sessions to begin Week 18 prep, but his outlook improved with a full practice Friday. The second-year tight end entered Sunday deemed questionable to suit up, but he's ultimately been cleared to play. Smartt should thus fill his usual role as Gerald Everett's backup against the Chiefs.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Questionable for Week 18

    Smartt (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Smartt was upgraded to full practice Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday, a sign he has a decent chance to suit up versus Kansas City. Smartt has nine catches for 141 yards and one touchdown on 18 targets this season.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Limited participant again

    Smartt (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, Eric Smith of the Chargers' official site reports.

    The backup tight end has yet to play in more than 57 percent of the offensive snaps in any game this season. Smartt has nine catches for 141 yards and a touchdown in 2023.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Snares three passes

    Smartt caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in Thursday's 63-21 loss to the Raiders.

    With Donald Parham (shoulder) out, Smartt saw a jump in playing time and benefitted to the tune of a career-high three receptions, but the massive blowout also played a factor in the extra workload. It's hard to imagine Smartt being utilized frequently, so long as Parham and Gerald Everett are both healthy.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Healthy scratch

    Smartt (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Broncos, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Smartt will be the odd man out at tight end for the Chargers after appearing in all 12 games for the team this season. The team will opt to dress Nick Vannett and Stephen Anderson as their No. 3 and No. 4 tight ends behind Gerald Everett and Donald Parham, respectively.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: No catches after season high

    Smartt failed to corral his lone target in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Ravens.

    After coming off back-to-back weeks with 20 or more offensive snaps and three targets, Smartt didn't get much playing time in Week 12, with no stats off only eight offensive snaps. The undrafted free agent saw his best game of the year in Week 11 with a touchdown off his sole 51-yard reception, but he has yet to record multiple receptions in a contest. On the season, the 25-year-old has seen 198 total snaps less than Donald Parham and Gerald Everett who both have tallied more than 300. He should continue to see a minimal role when the Chargers travel to New England in Week 13.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Finds end zone in win

    Smartt caught one of three targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers.

    Smartt's trip to the end zone was his first score of the 2023 campaign. The 25-year-old tight end played behind Donald Parham with Gerald Everett (chest) ruled out for the contest. Smartt saw three targets for the second straight week, so it's possible he'll continue to see increased involvement for the Chargers' offense that is in need of playmakers. He'll have the opportunity to build off this performance when the Chargers host the Ravens in Week 12.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Records 24-yard catch in loss

    Smartt hauled in his lone target for a 24-yard gain in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Titans.

    Smartt finished third among Chargers tight ends in offensive snaps in the Week 2 loss, with his 22 (34 percent share) placing him behind Donald Parham (31, 48 percent) and Gerald Everett (27, 42 percent). The latter two tight ends have been consistently more involved in the passing attack thus far, though Smartt recorded the longest reception of his young career on the Chargers' fourth-quarter touchdown drive.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Gets little use Week 14

    Smartt hauled in his lone target for an eight-yard gain in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Smartt has suited up in each of the Chargers' last four games, but the undrafted rookie out of Old Dominion logged just four snaps on offense Week 14. He's firmly behind Gerald Everett (56 snaps) and Tre' McKitty (40 snaps) in the pecking order at tight end.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Does little despite role increase

    Smartt caught two of his three yards in the 27-20 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

    Smartt was technically listed as one of the starting tight ends alongside Gerald Everett, but that clearly was a false flag as nominal No. 2 tight end, Tre' McKitty, wound up out-snapping the undrafted rookie. It's hard to imagine Smartt earning an extended role provided the others above him on the depth chart stay healthy.

  • Chargers' Stone Smartt: Catches lone target in debut

    Smartt caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Chiefs.

    The undrafted rookie actually wound up playing 19 snaps in his debut and was the only tight end to see a target, albeit a short dump-off. Smartt's playing time will likely cease with the eventual return of Gerald Everett (groin).
