Haha, no, don't freak out -- you can still start "Steve Smith 2" Sunday night on your fantasy team when New York and Chicago square off . But you should be concerned about the Panthers' star wide receiver, because he apparently has a high ankle sprain.

Jay Glazer reported on television that Smith's X-rays came back negative, but that the injury is initially being diagnosed as a high ankle sprain; Adam Schefter reported the same injury on Twitter.

That's very bad news for the Panthers, clearly, because Smith is their only primary weapon in the passing game.

However, the extent of the injury still isn't known, and won't be fully known until Monday, when Carolina doctors get a chance to take a look at the wideout's ankle.

Additionally, as seen with someone like Andre Johnson, it's possible to play the next week. But it's also possible for a high ankle sprain to limit a player for several weeks -- fortunately for the Panthers, their bye week is just one Bears game away, which means that Smith's timetable for recovery will likely come during their week off.

While Smith and Clausen barely connected at all, it may help force some of the younger receivers into stepping up.  We'll see.

Report: Steve Smith has high ankle sprain

There's bad news and good news, the bad news is no Smith, BUT if the Panthers defense plays like the Giants did, it's possible the Panthers can pull off an upset, Clausen will miss Smith, that is true though. the Panthers WR's NEED to step up. Jarrett is on his way out if he doesnt play better than this, LaFell and Gettis will not start next year if they continue to stink it up, these guys better play better or they will lose their jobs to a high draft pick next year.
