Played two quarters of a playoff game against the New York Giants with a separated shoulder. John Madden called it the most courageous performance he'd ever seen.
Smith almost didn't become a Dallas Cowboy. Dallas had already traded for speedy running back Terrance Flagler, and then-coach Jimmy Johnson wanted to use Dallas' first-round pick that season (acquired from Minnesota in the Herschel Walker trade) to draft a defensive back. However, both backs Johnson wanted were taken before Dallas picked. Johnson, reminded that Smith was still available on the board, expressed a reluctance for several reasons: Smith was short, slow and always carried the ball in his left hand (making him more susceptible to costly fumbles since running backs often switch hands depending on where they're running). But one of Dallas' scouts, who'd observed Smith at Escambia High School and at the University of Florida, said this to Johnson: "This kid broke every high school rushing record in the state of Florida. He can block, catch passes and I've never seen him caught from behind. You HAVE to take him". Smith was drafted by Dallas, and the rest is history.
