    SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers All-Pro receiver Steve Smith was carted off the field Saturday with a hamstring injury on the opening day of training camp.

    Midway through the afternoon session, Smith pulled up while running a long route down the left sideline. He immediately clutched his left hamstring, took a couple of steps and fell to the ground.

    Two trainers came to his side, and new teammate Keyshawn Johnson also came over to check on Smith, who slowly got to his feet after about a minute. He threw his gloves in anger, got onto the back of the cart and was brought inside.

    This could be one of them things that lingers?!

    As significant a non-QB injury that could happen to a team.

    20 minutes after they reported this news on sirius, they backpedaled saying it was just a minor hamstring pull.

    Man, I hope it's not true. I've already got my $$ down on Carolina to win the SB.

    No such thing for a player such as Smith.
  8. First day of practice and they carted him off?
    Tap's right. This is a big injury.

    Not a good day for No. 1 receivers -- Philly's Reggie Brown also hurt his hamstring today.

    The fact that he got so angry has me worried. Usually when you know it may be bad you get real pissed. Too early to tell tho. He could be fine.
