Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio isn’t one for taking things day by day, however. Fangio met the media this week and he said that we should expect to see Smith on the field against the Panthers.
“I’m sure he’ll play some,” Fangio said, via the team.
How much “some” turns out to be will likely have a lot to do with Smith’s conditioning after six weeks away from the team.
