Steve Smith breaks arm during flag football game at youth camp
 
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Pro Bowl receiver Steve Smith broke his left arm playing flag football at a youth camp over the weekend, and the Carolina Panthers star will miss the start of training camp.

The Panthers said Monday that Smith had surgery Sunday night. It's the same arm the four-time Pro Bowl receiver broke late last season against the New York Giants.

General manager Marty Hurney says Smith "feels terrible about it" and his focus is on "getting back as quickly as he can."

The team says it's uncertain when Smith will be able to return, but that he'll definitely miss the start of training camp. The Panthers report July 28.

Smith had 65 catches for 982 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

I know this isn't directly Saints related but it might matter a whole lot for Carolinas season. Breaking the same arm 2 years in a row makes me think he has weak bones or that it didn't heal properly the first time.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Get well soon! Atleast in time to take the two beatdowns the Saints are going to lay on you this year.

He'll be back in time, and he's a good player. I wonder how different things could be in Carolina now that Jake "I'm locked on to ONE WR and everybody knows it" Delhomme isn't there. They just might be more difficult to defend.

His availability for pre-season fisticuffs with teammates could be in jeopardy!

He will still have a good season, well long as Matt Moore can perform better than Delhomme. That's not really that far fetched.

I hate Steve Smith. He is a punk, with a short man's complex. And a mouth like 7 eleven, it never closes. I say break the other arm.....
