The Cherries defender, 29, clattered into Ben Davies with players frantically signalling for medical help.
Smith was treated for eight minutes on the pitch after a horror head injury.
Medics with facemasks dashed to the aid of stricken Smith.
More worryingly, Smith required oxygen after being knocked out cold after being taken off on a stretcher.
The right-back had already taken a Harry Kane free-kick to the stomach which appeared to knock the wind out of him.
But just minutes later a high-speed collision with Davies left him seemingly unconscious.
After medics darted onto the pitch, they carefully placed him on a stretcher, carried him off and gave him oxygen.
All in all, it took EIGHT MINUTES for Smith to leave the pitch such was the extent of the injury.
Reports claim Smith was in good spirits as he was carried off.
Kane even shared a little joke with him, saying: “Smithy, you’re still ugly.”
Smith was replaced by Jack Stacey with the game against Tottenham level at 0-0.
