New Panthers HC Ron Rivera shed some light on how he views WR Steve Smith. “We have to go through the process and see how things fit and where he sees it. It's a touchy thing,” Rivera said. “We're going to have to wait until everything's cleared up and see where he is. Rivera went on to say that he’s “a part of what we are right now,” but things could easily change. Smith has wanted out before and could get his way this summer. If the 32-year-old stays in Carolina, his fantasy upside is severely limited.

11:51am EST 1/2/11

Panthers WR Steve Smith (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Falcons.  A fitting end to a disastrous season.

After being limited in Thursday’s practice, Panthers WR Steve Smith (calf) was held out on Friday. He’s officially listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s season finale against the Falcons. Smith isn’t a fantasy option even if he does end up playing.

Panthers WR Steve Smith was limited in Thursday's practice with a calf injury.  He was later spotted limping around the locker room.  His status for Sunday's game against the Falcons is uncertain, but Smith shouldn't be anywhere near your starting lineup anyways.

As expected, Panthers WR Steve Smith (ankle) is active for today's game against the 49ers.  He's just about 100% and should be in your lineup as a WR2.

After putting in a full week of practice, Panthers WR Steve Smith (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.  It's an impressive recovery from a high ankle sprain suffered less than 3 weeks ago.  With QB Matt Moore back at the helm, consider Smith a low-end WR2 this week.

Panthers WR Steve Smith (ankle) put in another full practice on Thursday.  He remains on track to play this Sunday against the 49ers.

Panthers WR Steve Smith (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday.  Wow!  He's just a little over 2 weeks removed from suffering a high ankle sprain -- an injury that usually takes 4+ weeks to recover from.  There's still a chance of a setback, but it's looking like Smith has an excellent chance to play against the 49ers this Sunday.  We'll continue to update his status throughout the rest of the week.

As expected, Panthers WR Steve Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 5.  He'll likely miss another 2-3 weeks with that high ankle sprain.  Rookies Brandon LaFell and David Gettis are expected to start at WR for Carolina.  Avoid this entire passing game.

After injuring his ankle on Sunday, Panthers WR Steve Smith was asked if he'll be ready for Week 5. 
"Go next week? I'm just trying to walk to the bus," Smith replied. "I'm having trouble walking. Is it serious? I can't walk. That's pretty serious. It hurts to walk."  Smith apparently suffered a high ankle sprain.  Expect him to miss at least 2 or 3 weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Panthers WR Steve Smith suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Saints.  Ouch.  This is usually a 4+ week injury, although Chargers RB Ryan Mathews missed just 1 week with a minor high ankle sprain.  Still, owners should expect to be without Smith for multiple weeks.

Panthers WR Steve Smith left Sunday's game with an ankle injury.  He was able to limp off the field but was then carted back into the locker room for x-rays.  We'll update his status when we learn more.

11:40am EDT 9/26/10

As expected, Panthers WR Steve Smith (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. 

Panthers WR Steve Smith (thigh) is listed as probable for Week 3.  He was never in danger of missing this game.  Despite a difficult matchup against a talented Bengals secondary, Smith would be tough to bench.

Panthers WR Steve Smith was limited in practice for the 2nd straight day on Thursday with a thigh injury.  All indications are that the injury isn't serious, and Smith is fully expected to play against the Bengals Sunday.  But check back on Friday for an update.

Panthers WR Steve Smith participated in his first "full-pads" practice of training camp today.  He's just about 100% recovered from that fractured arm and will be ready to go for Week 1.  He's a high-end WR2

Panthers WR Steve Smith has been taken off the active PUP list.  He was running routes with the starters on Monday morning but still hasn’t been in full pads. Smith, who is recovering from a broken arm, hasn’t been cleared for contact yet but is still fully expected to be ready for Week 1.  We just bumped him back up our rankings a bit.

The Carolina version of WR Steve Smith has reported to training camp without a cast on his broken left arm. It’s a good sign, but he still has a ways to go in his rehab. Once he starts lifting weights and taking normal reps we’ll feel more comfortable endorsing him. The team still expects him to be ready by Week 1.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that Panthers WR Steve Smith's recovery from a broken arm is going smoothly. The team is tentatively expecting him back for their final preseason game. But as a worst case scenario, it sounds like Smith will definitely be back on the field by Week 1. He remains a solid WR2 for your fantasy squad.

11:49am EDT 7/7/10

Panthers HC John Fox believes that WR Steve Smith (fractured arm) will be 100% and ready to go by Week 1 of the NFL season. Smith and his agent have already indicated that he’d be participating in team activities before the end of the preseason, but this is the first time Fox has mentioned any timetable regarding the injury. We’ve seen Smith starting to drop to the late 4th-round in mock drafts. He’s a nice value at that spot.
