The long bone fragment is unlike any others I’ve collected but with both ends missing this is proving difficult for me to identify.  I see some resemblance to the Smilodon radius on the University of Michigan Online Repository linked below, hoping someone can conform or steer me in the right direction.

Without the ends I don't see how you could get to a confident ID.  I think you need to get access to a cast (because there's never anybody around with a Smilodon radius when you need one) and put them side-by-side and compare the contours.
