Panthers WR Smith Breaks Arm; Should be Back for Season Opener


Panthers wide out had a plate inserted into his left arm Sunday after suffering a broken bone playing flag football over the weekend, writes Steve Reed, of CarolinaGrowl.com. General manager Marty Hurney said Smith feels terrible about it and is focusing on rehabilitation. Smith tried to break up a pass in flag football, slipped and broke his arm when he fell.

It is the same arm he broke a year ago, but in a different place. Overall, the injury is considered minor and it should heal between six and eight weeks. His agent, Derrick Fox, said he should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.
