Agent: Smith breaks arm playing DB

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith broke his arm while playing defensive back during a flag football game at his football camp this weekend, his agent Derrick Fox confirmed. 

 

Smith underwent surgery for the injury Sunday night. Fox predicted that Smith should be ready for the Panthers' regular-season opener.

 

"I'm not trying to play doctor, but I don't think he'll miss any games due to this injury," Fox said. "He did this while trying to play with and help the kids."

 

Smith ran his annual youth football camp Thursday through Saturday and the Panthers concluded their offseason practice last week.

 

Smith is not expected to be ready for the start of training camp in late July because of the injury but should be available later in the preseason.

 

Smith broke the same arm last season, albeit in a different spot. Last season, the injury caused him to miss the Panthers' regular-season finale.
