Ontario Smith excused from Vikings

This story adds to the Ontario Smith saga.
Embattled Vikings running back Onterrio Smith missed his second developmental camp practice in three days today and has been excused from the team indefinitely because of a league matter, head coach Mike Tice said this afternoon.

"I really can't speak about any reasons why, or when he'll be back," Tice said after the last of this week's developmental practices at Winter Park. "It's in the league's hands, and we'll leave it at that."

Smith, a two-time offender of the league's substance abuse policy, was detained April 21 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with a kit designed to circumvent drug tests. The league launched an investigation May 18 after news of Smith's possession of the Original Whizzinator broke in the Star Tribune.

The only question I have is would the Vikings have done this if they were hurting at the running back position?
