Panthers wait on Smith, who doesn't practice
The All-Pro receiver, who missed the Panthers' season-opening loss to Atlanta, has been out since Sept. 5. He remained questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota.
Smith, who led the NFL in receiving last season, missed more than two weeks of training camp with a strained left hamstring and another week with an ingrown toenail.
If Smith can't play Sunday, Drew Carter is expected to start against the Vikings.
