ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith underwent surgery Sunday night on a broken arm suffered over the weekend. Smith injured his arm while playing defensive back in a flag football game at his annual youth camp. John Fox doesn’t expect Smith to miss any regular season action.

Last season, Smith missed the Panthers final game with a broken bone in the same arm (though in a different spot). The 31-year-old is Carolina’s only source of experience and speed on the outside. No. 2 and 3 receivers, Dwayne Jarrett and Brandon LaFell, are both callow possession targets. Third-round rookie Armanti Edwards is a speed demon, but the Appalachian State quarterback is just now learning to play wide receiver.

Even if Smith is healthy for Week 1, the offense will likely have gone all of training camp and the preseason without its most electrifying receiver. That could have a substantial impact on the chemistry of the passing game.

UPDATE: Darrin Grant of The Charlotte Observer offers more details on how Smith broke his arm and says that Smith could be back at some point during training camp.

UPDATE 2: Pro Football Talk has more on this: it sounds like Steve Smith may not have been entirely honest with the Panthers about this injury.
