Smith injured his shoulder earlier in camp and didn't make the trip to the preseason opener against the Giants. As a general rule, Fox doesn't have players travel when there is no chance of them playing. But it's the preseason, so I think there's still a good chance Smith will sit out. If he plays at all, it will just be for a few snaps.
He's Carolina's best player and all that matters here is that Smith is at full strength for the regular season.
