Steve Smith to Return Punts in the Playoffs?

From: Yahoo! Sports

The Panthers gave potential playoff opponents something else to prepare for in the postseason when they lined up Steve Smith as a punt returner on Sunday during the second half against New Orleans. Smith, a former Pro Bowl returner before emerging into a star receiver, returned just one punt. It’s the only punt he’s returned all season. “I think he’s a guy that’s been pretty adequate at that position,” Fox said. “As we get into (the playoffs), that may or may not be something we look at. We didn’t want the playoffs to be the first time he did it. He’s practiced it in practice, but there’s nothing like being out there in a game, and we wanted to get a look at that in a game situation.”
