Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith injured his right shoulder after hitting the ground hard and colliding with cornerback Chris Gamble at practice. Luckily, X-rays came back negative.

Smith did not inform anybody about his return to the practice field, but did say he'd be ready for the team’s season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 13.

It's unlikely that Smith will play during the preseason. He could be replaced by third-year wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett, who has been a bust his first two seasons and has yet to score a touchdown.
