SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith dislocated a finger on his left hand Tuesday morning, which he said would need stitches and should keep him out a week to 10 days.

"It's one of those things that happens to a receiver, you know, dislocating a bone through the skin," Smith said. "It's one of those things that just happens. I'm going to get stiches, take the stiches out, and then I'll be ready to go again. It will be a week to a week-and-half. It just depends on how the stiches heal."

The Panthers are thin at receiver. They've had several players bothered by hamstring troubles, including Brandon LaFell, who was back on the field Tuesday. The key here will be the missed time for Smith. Like the entire team, he is learning a new offense.

Smith is a undersized wr making him prone to injury.  Yes he does seem to be bitten @ least once a year by the injury bug but he is a mean little guy.  Thats it nothing more nothing less.

Ummm, you wanna tell me how Smith is a pansy for dislocating his finger nutty ??



Cause he always finds a way to do this. He will miss a portion of every year he plays. He will NEVER play a full season. Hes a part-timer. Hes a fantasy football nightmare. Hes an over-rated player on an underacheiving team, and does not have any real reason to go all out. He wont play well, until its almost contract time. Hes dust.
