CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — At least for a day, the Carolina Panthers didn’t need Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy. Carolina’s stout defense forced three turnovers and sacked Matthew Stafford four times in a 24-7 victory on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers have extended the contracts of offensive tackle Nate Chandler and two other players.
Chandler, who’s competing with Byron Bell for the starting left tackle spot, received a three-year contract extension. Defensive end Mario Addison and safety Colin Jones received two-year contract extensions.
