Finally, the Carolina Panthers Cut Armanti “FIVE CAREER CATCHES” Edwards…What took so Long?…
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers announced they’ve signed wide receiver Marvin McNutt and center Brian Folkerts to the 53-man roster.
Carolina Panthers wideout Steve Smith takes a shot at a referee even though he was one of the goats in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers have finally given up on Armanti Edwards, waiving the fourth-year wide receiver.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera is anxious to see if Domenik Hixon or Armanti Edwards can step up and be the team’s third wide receiver.
The way they have been playing of late the Panthers were probably looking forward to taking on the reeling Chargers. That is, until the Friday injury report put them behind the eight-ball with eight starters on it, three definitely out and possibly two more ready to join them.
In a season filled with injuries, the Panthers are very used to saying, “Next man up.” This week is no different as they have to replace their number one back and number two receiver as they host the 11-1 Falcons who are in a lot better shape, physically.
Injuries should not play a major part in the final meeting of the year between the Buccaneers and Panthers this Sunday at Bank of American Stadium as only one player is listed as out. However, the Buccaneers have a concern at guard with starter Jamon Meredith hobbled with an ankle injury.
Jeremy Bridges has yet to play a game this season but Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera believes he is exactly the right man to plug at least one hole in a porous offensive line. If the name sounds familiar, Bridges was a member of the Panthers from 2006-08 and if he is good to go, he could slide right in as a starter.
Despite their win over the Redskins, the Panthers took their lumps last Sunday which included kick return specialist Kealoha Pilares being lost for the season. Once again it is next man up and this time it is David Gettis who will see his first regular season action since 2010.
