DETROIT -- Lions running back Kevin Smith injured his right shoulder and walked off the field in the third quarter Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

Smith was hurt on a run and went to the sideline, trying not to move his right arm. After getting evaluated on the bench by the training staff, he went toward the locker room.

He had 101 yards rushing and helped the Lions end their 19-game losing streak with a 19-14 win over Washington.

Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said he didn't know how serious Smith's injury was, adding he would be evaluated Monday.
