There has been some speculation from the Internet and talk radio that Smith is faking the injury. I have taken two (magnetic resonance imaging tests) and they've shown that I've pulled my hamstring. The left one, and at some point the right one. Unless I've got the MRI guy duped, (Panthers trainer) Ryan Vermillion, who's pretty high up on the training scale, at the top of the league of trainers, who else? Obviously all the (other) people I went and visited, and they saw my MRIs. So I'm doing all this to get a better contract? And how do I do this if I'm not even able to play? For the people who are insulting me and insulting this organization to think that I'm going to stoop down to that level that's not me. There are a lot of other things I can be doing if I want to hold out. I can go home. I can go to my lake house with my family," said Smith.
