Irv Smith Jr. brought in one of four targets for three yards in the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Smith Jr. finished behind only Adam Thielen for team lead in targets, though the added looks didn’t amount to much. The second-year man is stuck in a run-first offense with few opportunities to
