CHARLOTTE - Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Smith suffered a sprained ankle in last week's loss to New Orleans, and did not practice all week. He sustained the injury after making a catch, when a Saints defender fell on his leg. Smith was assisted off the field by Carolina medical personnel.

Additionally for the Panthers, Sherrod Martin (concussion) is out against the Bears, while running back DeAngelo Williams (illness) and cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (foot) are probable.
