Charlotte Observer - [Full Article]

Despite the injuries of WR Steve Smith (foot) and RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle), Panthers head coach Ron Rivera doesn’t believe any of his key starters will miss Week 1 notes the Charlotte Observer.

“There are injuries to heal, though nothing serious enough that Rivera is suggesting a key player could miss the opening game.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Smith is expected to return to practice on Sunday so as long as he doesn't suffer a setback, you can safely start him Week 1.
