Knee sprains are always worrisome, but the Carolina Panthers got the best possible news on the injury that took wide receiver Steve Smith out of Sunday's game.

B/R's Sports Medicine Lead Writer Will Carroll explains why this sprain isn't as bad as it could have been and what to expect from Steve Smith through the playoffs. A team like Carolina needs a lucky break like this if it's going to get to MetLife Stadium in February.
