Panthers WR Smith says he will play
January 6, 2014
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith says he'll play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC divisional playoffs.
What he can't predict is how his sprained left knee will feel during the game.
Smith said Monday ''it's not about can I go. It's about how confident do I feel when I am going. I will play Sunday. But it's about how much I don't worry about the knee - and that's when the confidence increases.''
The 34-year-old Smith says the knee ''felt good'' after doing some cutting during a light practice Monday. He's expected to test it out more thoroughly Wednesday.
Smith, Carolina's all-time leading in touchdowns, sprained his posterior cruciate ligament in Carolina's Week 16 win over New Orleans and sat out the regular season finale against Atlanta.
