CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith will miss the start of training camp with a broken left forearm.

Blame it on a game of flag football with kids.

Playing the non-contact brand of football with children at his camp Saturday, the four-time Pro Bowl pick fell and fractured his left arm. He’ll be sidelined for at least the first couple of weeks of camp, but is expected to be ready for the season opener Sept. 12 at the New York Giants.
