Panthers | S. Smith, Lucas on speaking terms

The Associated Press reports Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith and CB Ken Lucas talked trash, argued and generally disliked each other for more than three years, culminating in Smith's sucker-punch at training camp last month that broke the Lucas' nose. Shortly after the incident, Smith and Lucas finally sat down and talked. Smith said it quickly became apparent a lack of communication was behind their problems. "Flat-out, we said it: I thought he didn't like me and he thought I didn't like him," Smith said. "It's plain and simple." Lucas said he has forgiven Smith. "I would think we're friends. I think the conversation we had would indicate we are," Smith said. "There were some frowns going on, some laughing and we talked about a lot of things. I think that was kind of the icebreaker. Hopefully it continues and I think it will."
