Smith traveling to Miami

Panthers coach John Fox said today that the entire team would travel for Saturday's exhibition against the Dolphins in Miami. That means receiver Steve Smith, who has been nursing a shoulder injury but practicing, will be there. Fox wouldn't say whether Smith would play, calling it a game-time decision.

Smith has been held out of contact drills since he hurt his shoulder Aug. 10 at training camp, so it's probably unlikely he'll play Saturday. He didn't make the trip earlier this week to the Panthers' preseason game at the New York Giants.

Missing practice Friday was the usual crew: RB Jonathan Stewart (Achilles), LB Thomas Davis (knee), S Nate Salley (knee), G C.J. Davis (ankle) and LB Landon Johnson (groin). -- David Scott

I'm sure glad Steve Smith has been held out of contract drills.

"Smith has been held out of contract drills"

Contract drills? I know what you mean, but being a newspaper means you need to edit.

One of Steve Smith's best plays ever was unfortunately overshadowed by an ugly loss (our running game was abysmal) to Miami a few years ago. The play where he caught the pass, ran into a mass of Dolphins defenders, did a little a spin, kept his balance and scored a touchdown? A thing of beauty.

Hey Yeah?,

I'm glad you don't have anything more important to do than to proofread the online newspaper.

No way he plays this game, not on that baseball diamond-laced field in Miami.

You guys both took the time to read the exact same article... it doesn't mean he is a loser because he can actually tell when someone makes a mistake/typo.

Personally, I'm NOT glad that the people who write these articles obviously don't have anything better to do than proofread their own writing! It's really sad how many mistakes are in this paper every day.
