Panthers | Good Night for Smart

Thu, 01 Sep 2005 22:56:22 -0700

Joe Menzer, of the Winston Salem-Journal, reports Carolina Panthers RB Rod Smart took a step forward in his bid to claim the last available roster spot for the team in their preseason game Thursday, Sept. 1. He had a good night on offense and special teams, good enough to perhaps land the final open roster spot for running backs. "I'm pretty sure I helped myself tonight," Smart said. "But I help myself every day when I come to practice or whatever. I set my mind the same way whether it's a practice, game or whatever. I come to play hard." Smart is vying with RBs Jamal Robertson and Casey Cramer for the final roster spot at running back. Smart gained 23 yards on five carries, with a 17-yard burst in the third quarter. He also returned a kickoff 46 yards.
