Comments from Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox following the team's morning mini-camp practice.

On wide receiver Steve Smith, who was shaken up during the two-minute drill: He landed on it (knee) funny but he's fine.

On if it scared him when Smith went down: Anytime a player goes down, it's scary. It always is, especially when it's that guy. 2004 was flashing in front of my eyes.

On how mini-camp went: Good. I liked the way the guys came in. They've obviously had a very good offseason, the veteran guys and some of our younger players from a year ago coming back. I thought the rookies, for the most part, we kind of throw a lot at them and they kind of grasp everything. It was a good start.

On if anybody stood out: I don't like singling guys out at this point but as a group I thought we've bettered ourselves and now we've got to continue that moving forward. It's a race, and every part of the race is important.

On what's next: We'll continue our offseason conditioning back here on Monday. The rookies will come back a week later. Then we start May 30th for summer school and we'll do that for 11 opportunities. Then we'll give them a little break and be in Spartanburg before you know it.

On the rookie class: They've been impressive. In three days, it's hard to get a great evaluation but so far so good.

On Nate Salley, who is competing to be the starting strong safety: We have high hopes for him, there is no doubt. These practices are opportunities for everybody, whether you are a first-time college free agent or a draft pick or even a veteran who's trying to earn a spot. As I tell those guys, they pick the team; I don't. Their performance on the field will dictate that. Nate is a guy we have high regard for, and he's made progress in this mini-camp.

On offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges playing guard after starting 14 games at tackle last season: We've got flexibility with our offensive line. By all of the injuries we had last year, a lot of guys got playing time. Jeremy Bridges was a guy we picked up after our season started, and he was a good pick up and played tackle for us. We know he can play tackle and are trying to find out who our best five are as we move forward
