The Sports NetworkJanuary 12, 2014 

Charlotte, NC ( - Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith will be ready to go for Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff against the San Francisco 49ers.

The 34-year-old Smith, who was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, sustained a PCL sprain in his left knee during Carolina's 17-13 win over NFC South-rival New Orleans on Dec. 22 and sat out the club's regular- season finale at Atlanta as a result.

Smith was a limited practice participant in the days leading up to Sunday's clash.

In 15 games this season, Smith had 64 catches for 745 yards and four touchdowns.

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is inactive.

Stewart sat out Carolina's final three regular-season contests after tearing the MCL in his right knee in early December.
