Not only did the defending NFC champions lose to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football, star receiver Steve Smith broke his leg in the fourth quarter. The Carolina Panthers trying to prove that last year was no fluke just took a major setback. Smith, the leading receiver for the Panthers last year, had 6 catches for 60 yards and signed a contract extension during the offseason for $27.5 million. It is unlcear as to how long he will be out.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina wide receiver Steve Smith broke his left leg in the fourth quarter of the Panthers' loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday night.

Smith was injured when he was tackled by Hannibal Navies after a short catch with 4:52 to play in Carolina's 24-14 loss. Navies fell on Smith's leg while he pulled the receiver down from behind near the Carolina sideline.

Smith dropped writhing to the ground with a broken fibula, and was helped off the field by team personnel. It's unclear how long Smith -- who signed a $27.5 million contract extension during the offseason -- will be out.

Ohhh that is a big blow for them, he had a great season last year. He could well be out for a couple of months at least...
