    Smith just found out that a family member passed this morning in a vehicle accident. Coach Harbaugh is leaving whether or not he plays up to him at the moment. It was just reported on ESPN.

    It was his brother who died in an motorcycle accident this morning. I am sorry to hear stuff like this. I never ever wish harm on any players or their families. This is bigger than football.

    BTW, just a suggestion, but maybe you or the mods can change the title of the thread. The story is that his brother died. His status tonight is really irrelevant in light of the reason why he may not play.

    I expect him to play. He told Harbaugh he wanted to play according to ESPN.

    He most LOVE playing against the Patriot considering that the Patriots in all their wisdom chose Shane Vereen instead of him in the draft.

    That's probably the reality of it, unfortunately.

    He'll play, he said he would. Everyone I've heard has said that he's playing.

    RIP to his brother and condolences from Patriot Nation to his family, that's an absolute shame to hear. Very sad indeed.

    May he find some small measure of comfort in this trying time for him and his family.

    I don't care whether he plays tonight. I feel terrible for him and his family. This is greater then some silly game. His younger brother was just 19 years old.

    I still hope we pound the snot out of him and his team, but before and after the game, I offer my most sincere condolences to him and his family. I'm sure I speak for all of Patriot nation on this one.

    This thread seems as good a place as any to put that thought.

    My sincere condolences to him and his family. Any life lost so young is a terrible thing for any family to bear.

    As fanatic as we all are about this most wonderful of games, this unique American institution, it's still a game, and life must go on.

    I hope that the Angels of Mercy will bring solace to this young man's family this day, and in the days to come.

    Torrey Smith needs to be with his family tonight, and not on some football field.

    That really is his choice. People grieve how people grieve, no one can tell them what is right or wrong.
    What a tragedy:(
