George continues to endure a sore talbone but hasn't missed any action as a result of the injury, the Pacers' official site reports. On Wednesday, he stated, "It's not as bad as a week ago. Now it's to the point where it doesn't take as long to warmup but it's still a little lingering right now."
Smith's agent indicates that he believes that the wideout has played his last game as a Panther, the Charlotte Observer reports. Smith "is not going to play for the Panthers next year, I know that," Smith's agent, Derrick Fox, noted. "I just don't know when that transaction is going to take place."
