Despite a foot infection that has relegated him to crutches, Panthers receiver Steve Smith is inching closer to a return to the field.

According to the Associated Press, coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that Smith is expected to return to practice Sunday.

It’ll give Smith a full week to get ready for Carolina’s season-opening game at Tampa.

Rivera isn’t ruling out Smith or any other injured players for Week One, including linebacker Jon Beason, tackle Jordan Gross, running back Jonathan Stewart, and fullback Mike Tolbert.

I hate using the same gif, twice in one day, or in this case twice in 5 minutes but I have to...

If they practice next Wednesday then they will play. I think Gross, Beason, JStew, Tolbert, and Smith will all be ready for week 1.

Great to see a HC that actually keeps the fans informed about the players...Fox was too secretive...like he didn't feel it was our business...so glad he's gone...

Rivera has claimed he expected Beason back for weeks now....

Clearly Rivera isn't a doctor. I think he hopes he will be back....I wouldn't get my hopes up. I have already mentally prepares to have neither week 1

What happened to Gross? Missed that one.

I swear man....are you ever NOT pessimistic about something in your life.

Every single post you make is negative on here....just wondering if you are just a Debbie Downer when it comes to the Panthers, or are you that way with everything in your life.
