unless your season includes preseason i wouldn't worry.

just gives the coaching staff a chance to see which WRs step up.

I'd normally agree but when a coach says if this was regular season he'd be OUT. NFL I've never seen someone go from OUT to go in one week.

Really? Happens with illness all the time. A staph infection isn't that big of a deal unless it's not treated.

Disagree. Have witnessed it with a guy in highschool on the football team. Depending on how serious this is could cause surgery, not heal, get infected again, etc. His got infected twice requiring surgery both times and lost a lot of muscle around the thigh/knee area.

Not good if a staph. It takes months to clear and more to get your body back. It's ruined NFL careers.


Bummer to me since I drafted him once for the first time ever.

Nah, Elma's right. He'll be fine, he's only using crutches to avoid walking on a sore foot. Staph infections are whatever, I've had 2 due to sports related abrasions and they were no biggie at all.

As long as you use antibiotics appropriately, it shouldn't get complicated.

Regular season starts next weekend? Someone might need to let them know that. :lol:

It's only been called an 'infection' by folks around here so I don't put a lot of stock in ESPN. They've already commented that it's responded to antibiotics.

I think the doctors are just a little bit better at the pro level, than the family physician down the street. He will be fine.

yep.

this is a great opportunity to get him for cheap, though. just make people hit the panic button by making incredibly rare worst case scenarios more likely.

Glad to heart that. ESPN is pretty much a bag of over hyped hot smelly wind.

smitty's foot is getting better and i've heard that it's just a little swollen.

main reason he won't be playing this week is that he hasn't been practicing and been a part of the game planning this week. if this was a regular season game i would expect him to be out on the field this week, but being preseason there's no reason, esp. since they want to see how the WRs look and the WR3 job is still up for grabs.
Quote:
Smith missed practice for a second consecutive day Thursday, although coach Ron Rivera said Smith’s foot had improved following a round of antibiotics.

Rivera said the Panthers will decide Friday whether Smith will play in Sunday’s exhibition against the New York Jets. But Rivera indicated the teams plans to be cautious.

“Putting him out there right now in this situation and circumstances would not be smart, especially if he doesn’t get any practice reps in terms of what we do,” Rivera said. “This is really a game-plan week. We’re approaching this week as if we would any regular-season game. … To put a guy out there when he hasn’t had a chance to get those reps would be careless.”
