Wide receiver Steve Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers missed practice on Wednesday and went to a doctor for an examination of an infection in his left foot.
Smith also missed practice on Sunday because of the infection, but practiced with the team on Monday.
Coach Ron Rivera said he does not believe the injury is serious, but that he would know more after speaking with the Panthers’ medical staff.
Smith is receiving antibiotics for the infection and has not been ruled out of Sunday night’s exhibition game against the New York Jets.
Entering his 12th season with the Panthers, Smith is the clubs’ all-time leader with 67 touchdowns, 699 receptions and 10,278 receiving yards.
Last season, Smith became the 35th player in NFL history to amass 10,000 receiving yards.
