CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — While he’s not quite ready to name starters, Panthers coach Ron Rivera is pleased with how his offensive line has progressed following an offseason of change.
The Panthers lost four offensive linemen from last year’s roster to retirement, including longtime left tackle Jordan Gross.
On Monday, Carolina Panthers opted to keep two of their own and re-sign them to the team
Head coach Ron Rivera not as upset with the loss but how his team fell to the Seahawks. The Panthers will have to regroup before heading to Buffalo.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers announced that starting right guard Garry Williams has torn the ACL and MCL in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. The news came Monday shortly after coach Ron Rivera addressed the media at his weekly press conference.
Defense has not been a trademark of the 2012 Raiders, having given up 402 points in 14 games, so it will be no surprise if they add to that inflated number this weekend. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour has somehow stayed on the active roster all season, despite missing the last six contests, and he will be out again when his team tries to slow down the recharged Panthers.
One team could get their season back on track but the Cowboys have some significant injuries to their offense and special teams. The Panthers are hurting too, but after week off they are focused and ready to go.
Yesterday seemed like a normal Monday. The slow, dragging morning, the stark pain of waking up and returning to work, and the long drawn-out afternoon until it’s finally time to go home and unwind. Well, yesterday the Carolina Panthers added a little extra incentive to get home faster and read up on all the news. The Panthers, who have never been a team to make too many off-season trades and acquisitions, made not one but two trades yesterday.
