Thankfully, for those who have been missing his coverage on First Take in recent weeks, A smith has provided a well-needed update.
So where is Stephen A Smith on First Take?
Having first assured fans he would “be back in a few weeks”, A Smith took to Twitter to explain his absence:
“Appreciate the love I’ve been receiving from everyone who’s missed me on @FirstTake. I’m out because I’m rehabbing from shoulder surgery. Partial tear — rotator cuff AND Bicep, along with frayed Labrum, plus a Bone Spur. Aging sucks, but it is what it is. Back next month.#AllLove“.
Sounds like a pretty sore one, Stephen!

Another user trolled A Smith’s typical punditary style, joking that he was “abandoning his team in a time of need really shows his character.”

A Smith’s previous work absence
A Smith’s shoulder injury is not the first tie this year that the pundit has had to take time off work, with the 54-year-old having to miss time out back in winter.
A Smith was absent from his TV duties in January 2022 after it was revealed he had been suffering with COVID-19.
Having picked up the virus in late 2021, A Smith described how doctors told him that he may not have survived, as he encouraged everyone to wear a mask.
It is not confirmed exactly when A Smith will be back on our screens this time around, though he is not expected to be out of action for more than a few weeks from now.
