Shi Smith, WR (CAR)

Involved in debut

Smith caught both of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 34-28 overtime loss to the Vikings.

Smith, a rookie sixth-rounder, played eight offensive snaps and seven on special teams in his NFL debut. Along with his receptions, Smith returned a kickoff for 24 yards. With fellow first-year wideout Terrace Marshall now in concussion protocol, Smith stands a decent chance to remain active in Week 7 versus the Giants.
