Panthers' Rodney Smith: Garners eight carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith rushed eight times for 29 yards in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Lions.

Smith was handed Carolina's first two rushing attempts of the game and racked up five carries by the end of the first quarter. While that suggested he'd work more in tandem with starter Mike Davis, Smith ultimately played only nine offensive snaps Sunday. Obviously, he got the ball almost every time he was on the field, but Smith's workload paled in comparison to Davis' 21 total touches. As long as Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) is sidelined, Smith figures to factor into the Panthers' rushing game as Davis' understudy, but it seems unlikely he'd do so if McCaffrey is fit to return in Week 12 versus the Vikings.

Panthers' Rodney Smith: Gets three carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith rushed three times for 13 yards and caught his only target for two yards in Sunday's 46-23 loss to the Buccaneers.

Smith, who was making his NFL debut, was called into action after starting tailback Mike Davis briefly left during the second half with a finger injury. Although Davis ultimately returned, Smith still showed well in his short stint, ripping off a game-long rush of 10 yards. While that contribution should help Smith's chances of retaining a roster spot, Davis' availability and the potential return of Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) in Week 11 should keep the rookie's role restricted.

Panthers' Rodney Smith: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers have signed Smith to their active roster.

Smith failed to make the Panthers' active roster after signing with them as an undrafted free agent. The Minnesota product is the Gophers' all-time leader in all-purpose yards and will be making his NFL debut. While Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) will be sidelined, Smith will still be behind Mike Davis and Trenton Cannon on the depth chart.

Rodney Smith: Inks practice squad deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers signed Smith to the practice squad Monday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

The undrafted free agent out of Minnesota has passed COVID-19 protocols and will add depth at running back for the Panthers. However, Christian McCaffrey (ankle) is eligible to come off IR in Week 6 against the Bears, and if that comes to fruition, Smith likely won't be elevated to the active roster.

Rodney Smith: Let go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was cut by the Panthers on Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

The undrafted free agent received a rather hefty guaranteed signing bonus upon signing with the Panthers, but the team clearly felt more comfortable with other members of its running back depth chart. Smith certainly showed a bit of promise in his senior season at Minnesota, accumulating 1,233 total yards and eight touchdowns, so it's entirely possible he could, at minimum, wind up on a practice squad during the season.
