UPDATED (2:58 p.m. ET): According to the Charlotte Observer's Joe Person, the X-rays on Steve Smith's finger were negative.

UPDATED (3:57 p.m. ET): CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco, embedded Tuesday with the Panthers, writes that Smith said he dislocated his finger and that he'll need stiches. Smith estimated he'd be out of action for 7-10 days.

----------

Reports coming out of Panthers camp, including that of Rapid Reporter Steve Reed, are stating that WR Steve Smith had to be carted out of practice because of an injury, though the Charlotte Observer’s Joe Person reports that Smith is suffering from only a finger injury. Smith

Smith walked off the field under his own power following his apparent injury. But then, he was carted back to the team locker room, presumably for observation, leading to temporary confusion among the press corps.

Person then tweeted that Smith was getting an X-ray on his finger.

A finger injury for a WR is not a nonissue. Just hope it's not serious.

Steve Smith is one tough dude! He takes a beating for his size. Steve Smith is always trying to get back on the field when he is hurt! He is a real football player. He has had such bad QB hang balls he lucky he can still play.
