Smith is expected to play in the Panther's first regular season game against the Bucs. Smith had been recuperating from a foot infection.
Carolina Panthers
Jonathan Stewart, RB
Stewart was taken off the field during the Panther's second preseason game against the Jets with an ankle injury. He suffered the injury on a 7 yard run when he was knocked out of bounds and immediately grabbed his leg. Stewart stayed on the ground for a few moments before being attended to by the team's trainers and heading to the locker room. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Stewart's x-rays came back negative.
Chicago Bears
Julius Peppers, DE
Peppers has been playing through plantar fasciitis in one of his feet. Peppers doesn't believe the injury to be a problem for the beginning of the season.

Green-Ellis has been practicing in full pads since Sunday when the media was there, but his status for the preseason finale was up in the air.
Cincinnati Bengals
Leon Hall, CB

Detroit Lions
Kevin Smith, RB
Smith attempted to clear rumors about his ankle injury Monday and said he would definitely be ready for the Lion's season opener against St. Louis on Sept. 9th. Smith left Saturday's game with a right ankle injury. "No doubt. I feel better. I wasn't in a walking boot or anything like that. I've got all my movement," Smith said.
Detroit Lions
Stefan Logan, WR
Logan's status is still unknown.
Green Bay Packers
Jason Starks, RB
Stark's progress has been slow. Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday that Starks is not healing as quickly as hoped and is unlikely to be ready for the start of the regular season. Starks has been sidelined since the Packer's preseason openers with a lingering turf toe injury. "James Starks, just talking to the medical staff, is coming along slow.
