Panthers place Smith on IR, promote Ivy
By Pat Yasinskas
The Panthers went ahead and placed wide receiver Steve Smith on injured reserve Friday.
To fill his roster spot, the Panthers elevated Mortty Ivy from the practice squad. He’s a rookie receiver from West Virginia and this may allow the Panthers to take a look at Ivy in a game situation on Sunday.
Smith broke his arm in Sunday’s victory against the New York Giants.
