CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith says his left knee feels "fine" and hopes to be ready to play Sunday against San Francisco in the NFC divisional playoffs.

Smith says, "I will be all right. I should be OK."

Smith, who has been coy about the injury all week and pulled some bizarre numbers out of thin air to describe his health, looked up at his jersey number Friday and joked there's an "89 per cent" chance he'll play against the 49ers.

Smith had estimated Wednesday he was 71 per cent and then downgraded himself to 57 per cent on Thursday before finally saying that, "Honestly, I just randomly pick numbers."

Smith said he ran about five routes in practice before it started raining hard.

The receiver says, "I didn't want to aggravate it."
