The All-Pro receiver, who missed the Panthers' season-opening
loss to Atlanta, has been out since Sept. 5. He remained
questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota.
Smith, who led the NFL in receiving last season, missed more
than two weeks of training camp with a strained left hamstring and
another week with an ingrown toenail.
If Smith can't play Sunday, Drew Carter is expected to start
against the Vikings.
