Smitty's foot infection

Something to worry about? Heard that Mortenson turd is calling it a staph infection. Not sure how long they last, but it would fugging suck if he misses any regular season games.

If so, Murphy and Lafell will have to step up unbelievably considering tutu armanti are bad and pilares seems to be solid but doesnt look like hes developed into a consistent starting/slot role.

Staph should go away in a few weeks, I wouldn't be too worried.

Also, I think our running game should destroy the Saints* week 1 if he misses any games.

Steve Smith is on crutches at Panthers camp nursing his left foot infection.[/b]

We should note that ESPN's Chris Mortensen referred to it as a "staph infection" on Thursday night's [i]NFL 32.[/i] Coach Ron Rivera acknowledged Smith would be listed as "out" if there were a regular season game today. The Panthers are treating the infection with antibiotics and "monitoring" the swelling. We're not worrying yet, but this looks like a situation worth tracking.[/quote]

Just out of curiosity, what have you seen from Pilares to indicate he is "pretty bad"?

Granted, he's had few opportunities, but he has always performed well when given a chance.

i hope this doesn't turn into another 2006 where smith is "any day now don't worry" until the opener and then whoops he's going to miss two weeks.

Steve missed the first two games of the season 4 years ago and it worked out just fine. I would expect him to be ready but it's not a huge deal.

Meh, Reed tweeted yesterday that he got the impression from talking to Hurney that Steve would be out in days not weeks or months.

It is definitely something to be worried about. He cant do any work right now, so the longer it takes to heal, the longer it will take for him to get back in shape. I could see him missing a few regular season games.

It would be premature to call him bad or say he can play at this point
