Panthers: Steve Smith Shoulder Injury is Not Good

Arizona Cardinals v Carolina Panthers

It’s amazing……I almost started to write an article today on Steve Smith and how he was supposedly looking great in camp this year. Everything was going fine and that made me a little concerned because something always goes wrong for Steve right around this time.

Amazingly just before I wrote a positive article on Smith my hunch of something going wrong came true as today Smith injured his shoulder and may miss the pre-season.

It is amazing but either Steve always seems to get injured or punch a teammate and get suspended for a few game. It also always seems to happen right when I start thinking about how much I would like Smith on my fantasy football team.

Extent of the Injury

So far reports are saying that the X-ray on his shoulder shows nothing serious but a the same time Smith is reportedly in serious pain. Because of this I’m sure the Panthers are going to be very cautious with him for the rest of the off-season.

Look for Steve to see very limited time if at all this pre-season as he recovers from this injury.

Because of this look for third year receiver Dwayne Jarrett to see lots of valuable time in the offense as he is starting to look like the player we expected to see out of USC.

Fantasy Football Information on Steve Smith

Until we hear worse news on Smith, he still makes for a fine No.1 fantasy football receiver for fantasy owners this season. Unless the shoulder is in very bad shape and doesn’t heal in the next month I see no reason why he should fall out of the first three rounds of your fantasy draft.

Draft this talented player and he should reward you with another fine fantasy football season.
