Panthers WR Smith day-to-day with concussion

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- The Carolina Panthers have returned to training camp without top receiver Steve Smith, who sustained a concussion in the preseason opener.

Smith did not practice Monday morning. Coach John Fox said only that he's day-to-day.

Smith was shaken up after making a leaping 19-yard catch in the first quarter of Saturday's 23-20 overtime win against Indianapolis. He continued to play, but quarterback Matt Moore said he knew something was wrong with Smith.

The receiver was suspended by the team for the first two regular-season games for breaking teammate Ken Lucas' nose in a fight during practice this month. Lucas did conditioning drills on an adjacent field Monday, but is still not cleared to practice after he underwent a procedure last week to set his nose.
