 E.J. Smith, Stanford, Player News

  The Stanford football team received more unfortunate news on Tuesday. Stanford head coach David Shaw announced that junior running back E.J. Smith, the team's starter, is out for the season due to injury concerns. This news comes at the heels of other injury-related news for the Cardinal, including the retirement of senior guard Branson Bragg and injuries to senior tackles Myles Hinton and Walter Rouse. Hinton and Rouse remain questionable for Saturday's game against Oregon. "I know it's really disappointing for him," Shaw said about Smith. "Disappointing for the whole team. Think he's a special young man and a special football player and was just really coming into his own." Smith had a solid start to the season, accumulating 206 rushing yards and four touchdowns through two games before exiting the USC game early. He also added eight receptions for 63 yards receiving. It's believed that Smith got banged up during the USC game, but it's unclear where and when the injury took place. "We had him out at the beginning of the second half," Shaw said after the USC game. "You know, probably could've gone back out there, but we pulled the plug." - The Stanford Daily

  Tanner McKee threw two touchdown passes to Michael Wilson and Stanford routed FCS Colgate 41-10 on Saturday night in a season opener for both teams. "All offseason, he's been the guy," Stanford coach David Shaw said of his quarterback. "Leader on the football team. Voted a captain...We have high expectations for him as well." E.J. Smith, the son of former Dallas Cowboys star Emmitt Smith, had career bests with 118 yards rushing and five catches while running for two touchdowns to help the Cardinal snap a seven-game losing streak that dated to last season. "It's a great opportunity," Smith said of being named the starting running back. "There's been great running backs here in the past. Bryce, Christian and so forth. To be able to have that opportunity is a blessing." Stanford is 10-2 in home openers and 9-3 in season openers under Shaw.

Colgate marked the second opponent and third game against a FCS team in Shaw's 11-year tenure. On Stanford's first play from scrimmage, Smith cut left and raced into the end zone for an 87-yard touchdown. That tied Nathaniel Peat for the fifth-longest touchdown run in the program. Smith's previous career high was 54 yards rushing against Utah last season. Smith added another 37 yards receiving. "I said it on the headset, but that's how you start the season," Shaw said. "We know that E.J. is strong and physical. He's got that finishing speed, too. Great way to start the season." McKee was 22 of 27 for 308 yards passing and was relieved for Ari Patu at the start of the fourth quarter, who threw a 7-yard touchdown to true freshman Mudia Reuben. - Stanford/AP College Football

  2022 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD CANDIDATE: E.J. Smith (Jr.), Stanford,...While this may be a common surname, E. J. Smith is descended from football royalty. Hint, E. J. stands for Emmitt James. Yep, his father, Emmitt, is the Pro Football Hall of Famer who rushed for 18,355 yards and 164 touchdowns in 15 NFL seasons. Meantime, E. J. enters his junior year at Stanford trying to carve out his own legacy. As a sophomore in 2021 he was on the Pac-12 Academic Honor Roll; appeared in seven games with one start; Rushed for 133 yards, averaging 5.1 yards per carry, with one touchdown; Added 15 receptions for 74 yards. He scored his first career touchdown on a fourth quarter run, totaling 41 yards (Sept. 18). Even if E. J.'s college rushing counted towards the pros, he still has 10.35 miles to go to catch dad. - Stanford Football

  Shaw admitted that Stanford's losing streak last year took a toll on the locker room. Every position group on the team needed to improve, he said, but the two priorities for the Cardinal this offseason are straightforward. "Stopping the run and running the football," Shaw said. "Those two are the biggest impetus for the changes that we've made." It was Smith, the highly touted recruit and son of NFL Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith, that stole the show in the final practice of the week with his breakaway run. Shaw and offensive coordinator Tavita Pritchard confirmed that the junior is slated to take over as the top running back after the departure of Austin Jones and Nathaniel Peat. "He's got such a unique ability to make people miss in space," Pritchard said. "And the physicality of his game - I just love that he's a violent runner. Unfortunately, sometimes it's been tough for him to stay healthy. But we're confident with how he's working in the weight room and transforming his body here in the offseason that he'll be able to both utilize that running style and stay healthy for a season."

Smith rushed for 133 yards and 5.1 yards per carry last season in support of starters Jones and Peat, but the Texas-native was sidelined several times by injury. Shaw suggested that Smith would have taken on a bigger role last year after a breakout performance against Vanderbilt had he stayed healthy. In that September game, Smith scored his only touchdown of the season after an impressive cutback and hurdle into the endzone. "He was just getting going three different times when injury kept him out," Shaw said. "What he did at the end of the Vanderbilt game was really exciting, and we were ready to give him a bigger chunk of the offense." - The Stanford Daily
