Steve Smith to play after being involved in car accident

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith will play against the Miami Dolphins after being involved in a car accident en route to the game.

A team official said somebody "bumped into" Smith's car Thursday but said Smith was able to continue to drive to the stadium and is fine.

The four-time Pro Bowl pick has 38 catches for 512 yards and three touchdowns this season. Two of those scores came in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Falcons.
