The Panthers WR broke his arm while horsing around at his football camp. No, it wasn't on this high-five, but it was almost as embarrassing.
Steve Smith mostly survived seven years of being hung out to dry over the middle by Jake Delhomme (with only a broken leg and fractured arm to show for it.) I'm not sure if facing an eight-year-old QB at his youth camp was an upgrade or not, but things didn't end well there either.
Smith was playing defensive back, for some reason, in a game of flag football with his campers. He reached for an overthrown ball and tumbled to the ground, breaking his arm near the same place as he did last season. He had a plate put in late last night, and will miss much of training camp.
The Steve Smith Football Camp experience sounds like a good time. For just $189, campers get to spend the weekend extinguishing any playoff hopes the Panthers might have had. And also they get a t-shirt.
