It’s Next Man Up As Panthers Prepare For Chiefs In Kansas City

The Panthers have had their fair share of injuries this season, so once again they have to reach into their bag of reserves and pluck out second-year tackle Sione Fua to take over for Ron Edwards, who is gone for the season with a dislocated elbow. Meanwhile, running back DeAngelo Williams is getting the reps while Jonathan Stewart nurses his second high ankle injury of the year.

Panthers’ Win Against Eagles Was Costly

Eleven. That is the number of Panthers on injured reserve–an average of one per game. Now, Ron Edwards is the latest to join the not-so-exclusive club. But through it all, head coach Ron Rivera has tried to hold his team together while doing his best to help his young quarterback get through the trials and tribulations of a sophomore campaign.

Eagles’ Michael Vick And LeSean McCoy out for Monday Night Game Against ‘Healthy’ Panthers

If the Panthers are to get their third win of the season this may be the weekend to do it even though they will be playing on the road. The Eagles are arguably the worst team in the league and things don’t get any better for them with two of their offensive stars sitting this one out.

Cam Newton Gets Plenty Of Exposure During Thanksgivings Games

If there is one area that Cam Newton has been able to excel this year, it is in the world of Madison Avenue.

Despite Panthers’ Record, Dwan Edwards Has Been A Key Addition To Resurgent Defense

The Panthers are 1-6 but you cannot blame defensive end Dwan Edwards who has been everything – and more – since being picked up before the start of the season. Having already set a personal best in sacks, Edwards is just one behind team leader Charles Johnson in that department.

New Orleans Saints Have More To Deal With Than Just The Carolina Panthers

The Saints need a win, so do the Panthers but Carolina is at home and showed they may have a defense this year. New Orleans has Drew Brees but a lot of distractions including a somewhat embarrassing loss to the Redskins at home in the season opener.

How Do The Panthers Make The Playoffs?

Earlier this summer Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought an ad in the paper stating that he thought the Panthers could make it to the Super Bowl.
