Panthers WR Steve Smith is trying to battle back from his sprained left knee injury and things did not go well for him in practice today:
Steve Smith says today didn't go as well as he hoped. He downgraded self from 71 percent to 57 percent. #panthers

When asked about it he had this to say:
“Just didn’t go as well as I thought,” he said. “It will be all right. A little treatment. I did everything. I just probably overdid it.”
Not having Smith this weekend against the 49ers would be a huge blow to the Panthers offense. I expect him to give it a go but who knows what percent he will be at for the game.
I don’t think I need to tell him this but I will. Ice up Steve so your fans can see you play.
