Audio: Childress on Onterrio Smith

What will the Vikings do with running back Onterrio Smith? Hear what head coach Brad Childress had to say about the situation.

Vikings head coach Brad Childress isn't making a commitment either way when it comes to possibly bringing running back Onterrio Smith into the Vikings fold once again.

Smith, the team's leading rusher in 2004 with 544 yards on 124 carries despite serving a four-game suspension, was suspended for the entire 2005 season after receiving his third strike against the NFL's substance abuse policy. In the spring of 2005, he was also stopped by airport police and found to have a drug-masking device known as the "Original Whizzinator," which was one incident in a string of embarrassing off-the-field episodes for the Vikings in 2005.
