NEW ORLEANS -- A person familiar with the situation says New Orleans outside linebacker Will Smith, one of the Saints top pass-rushers during the past nine seasons, has a knee injury that will sideline him for the 2013 season. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented publicly on Smiths injury, which was first reported by the website Pro Football Talk. Smith, a former first-round draft choice, spent his first nine seasons as a defensive end and this year switched to outside linebacker in new defensive co-ordinator Rob Ryans 3-4 scheme. Smith was a projected starter, as was fellow outside linebacker Victor Butler, who also is recovering from knee surgery that will sideline him most or all of the season.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays had been looking for a right-handed bat to even out a predominantly left-handed lineup. They may have found a suitable option in infielder Danny Valencia. Toronto acquired Valencia -- whos hitting .333 against left-handed pitchers in his career -- from the Kansas City Royals on Monday in exchange for right-handed pitcher Liam Hendriks and catcher Erik Kratz. "We have a lot of left-handed bats on the roster right now and we certainly could use some help from the right side" Blue Jays manager Alex Anthopoulos said on a conference call. "Dannys had a lot of success. Weve actually inquired about him in the past but havent been able to get anything done. "Weve been really trying to find all year ... that right-handed bat. Hes had success at the big league level doing that and doing it well. Its a good fit for us." Through 36 games with the Royals this season, Valencia has a .282 batting average -- including a .354/.386/.492 slashline against lefties -- with five doubles, two home runs and 11 RBIs. Hes expected to report Tuesday to Fenway Park in Boston, where the Jays are currently playing a three-game set. Aside from a valuable bat, the 29-year-old Valencia is also versatile in the field, playing most of his career big league games at third base but also filling in at second and first, as well as the DH spot. Anthopoulos said that flexibility was a big draw for the Blue Jays, who are still missing starting first baseman/designated hitters Edwin Encarnacion (strained quadriceps) and Adam Lind (foot). "I think the No. 1 factor that we got with Danny is his success versus left-handers and what he can do in the box," the GM said. "Whether (Blue Jays manager John Gibbons) decides to put him at third, DH, first, hell ultimately make that decision. Im not concerned where hell find spots for him. I think iit will work out fine.dddddddddddd" Also missing from the Blue Jays lineup is starting third baseman Brett Lawrie, who broke his right index finger after taking a pitch on the hand in Cincinnati five weeks ago. Anthopoulos wouldnt say that having Valencia on the team would mean Lawrie could be permanently shifted to second base, a position hes played 32 games this season. "I wouldnt read anything into it," Anthopoulous said. "Things change so fast. "With respect to Brett, ideally youd like to have any player be at one position the entire time but ... the great thing we see is that our players want to win and theyre willing to play anywhere on the diamond," he added. "Weve even had Encarnacion play left field. "So its been a really selfless attitude across the board. When Brett comes back well see what the health of the team is, well see whos playing well, and well come up with a game plan at that time." Kratz, 34, is expected to report to Kansas City on Tuesday. He hit .198 with three homers and 10 RBIs in 34 games for Toronto, and .299 with a .354 on-base percentage through 27 games at triple-A Buffalo. Hendriks, meanwhile, was 1-0 with a 6.08 ERA in three starts for Toronto. He was a triple-A All-Star this year at Buffalo, going 8-1 in 18 games (16 starts) with a 2.33 ERA. While Anthopoulous said no other moves are in the mix as of now, he didnt rule out the possibility that more trades would be made ahead of the July 31 deadline. "I think theres always a chance but I think all 29 other GMs would say the same thing," he said. "I think its been very active in terms of phone calls, emails, texts, everyone seems to be exchanging ideas but thats expected. ... Trades are hard to make. "I wouldnt say were close to anything, but this deal came together fast so ... were going to continue to talk to clubs." ' ' '
