REGINA - Wide receiver Taj Smith will miss the Saskatchewan Roughriders game on Thursday due to an ongoing legal issue.

The Roughriders said Monday that Smith will miss the game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after the team learned he was "charged with violating a condition of release stemming from an incident last August."

Smith was charged with assault last August after he and teammate Dwight Anderson allegedly beat a man outside of a Regina nightclub.

A judge ordered Smith to stand trial after a preliminary hearing in June found that there was enough evidence to try him but not Anderson.

Evidence presented at a preliminary hearing is subject to a publication ban.

Smith has 227 receiving yards so far this season with two touchdowns.
