CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Steve Smith is back with the Carolina Panthers, just in time to join a team full of confidence after a surprising 2-0 start.
The receiver's two-game suspension for breaking teammate Ken Lucas' nose in a training camp fight ended Monday morning. He was seen leaving Bank of America Stadium around noon carrying two cardboard boxes and joking with defensive tackle Damione Lewis.
The Panthers insist they have gotten over the hard feelings created by Smith's sucker punch in camp. On Sunday they staged their second consecutive fourth-quarter comeback without him to beat Chicago 20-17.
The Panthers have until Wednesday to clear a roster spot for Smith, who has been on the reserve-suspended list.
