On the field, Thomas Davis stares down the opposition, but off it the Panthers’ linebacker has had to stare down something much scarier: the surgeon’s knife. In two years Davis has torn an ACL three times, and despite those injuries, he has come back to play the game he loves in the town where his heart is and everyone, save his opponents, is glad he did.
Ten down, six to go and the Panthers nightmarish season is mercifully over. It’s good to know that on this day of giving thanks there will be three games on the tube and the Cats will not be one of those competing, meaning the use of antacids will be greatly reduced.
Panthers Hope To Give Their Record A ‘Healthy’ Boost In Black And Blue Division Contest Against Bears
The Panthers have battled two foes this year, the opposition and the injured reserve list. Both have shared in the team’s 1-5 start and with the Bears up next, Carolina can only hope the Monsters of the Midway don’t knock any more players out of the lineup.
Marty Hurney is not the only thing wrong with this team!
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera says three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Jon Beason has been placed on injured reserve with knee and shoulder issues.
Cam Newton wants to add a suggestion box somewhere at Bank of America Stadium so the powers that be will listen to some of his ideas. The best spot might be next to his locker where his teammates can suggest he stop complaining before everyone begins to tune him out.
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.
With the Dallas Cowboys coming to town, the Panthers would like to have as many healthy bodies as possible when they face them on Sunday. Unfortunately, they lost yet another player to injured reserve, a key player is still hobbled and his availability is in doubt but the news wasn’t all bad as they could get another target for Cam Newton back as early as next week.
There’s simply too much for the Panthers to overcome to right the ship this season. Cam Newton is struggling, DeAngelo Williams can’t find holes, Jonathan Stewart is banged up, and injuries on defense, namely Jon Beason, are starting to add up. And most importantly, the Carolina Panthers don’t have enough talent on the defensive side of the ball.
The Panthers are dinged up on defense and that could make all the difference against the Seahawks on Sunday especially when having to face down the NFL’s leading rusher Marshawn Lynch who took most of the week off to rest. Seattle’s second ranked defense is relatively healthy and that could spell trouble for Carolina QB Cam Newton.
