Panthers Steve Smith Suspended Two Games
Carolina Panther Coach John Fox announced today that wide receiver Steve Smith is suspended for the first two games of the regular season following his actions against cornerback Ken Lucas yesterday on the sidelines of training camp. Lucas suffered a broken nose and did not practice today with the team at Fan Fest. Smith will practice with the team up until the Sunday before the first game of the season, according to Coach Fox but was also not present today. Coach Fox has this to say about the suspension, "He'll be suspended for the first two (regular season) games. What he did was wrong, we take it very serious, and he's being punished severely for it."
