“He’s got an evaluation at some point in time in August, where he’ll go back and see the doctors,” Smith said. “They are going to be the ones making the call on when he’ll be cleared to come back and participate.”
Peters, who had a career-high five sacks last season, was injured against San Francisco on Dec. 23.
“Corey will be rehabbing on the side to start training camp,” Smith said. “But we have been very optimistic about his work in the offseason with our guys in athletic performance, with the trainers and the doctors. As soon as they clear him, we’ll get him back and on the field.
“He’s has done a very good job with his rehabilitation.”
Also, tight end Levine Toilolo, who was limited over the offseason with an undisclosed injury, is healthy.
“He will be a full go in practice,” Smith said.
