Just announced but another injury has surfaced for the Panther Defense. Apparently Charles Godrey broke his hand during the game Saturday night as reported by Darin Gannt.
Starting FS Charles Godfrey had surgery to repair a broken right hand. No word yet on his timetable.
Since he wasn't being extremely effective this appears to be a minimal hit, but more importantly takes depth again away from another position because of injury. Darin is also reporting that Quinton Teal will slide into his place as starter at FS for the time being.
To add depth back in to the position, they signed free agent S Kevin Kaesviharn. This of course means they had to release someone and give us an indicator of how the depth chart will form. To make room WR Jason Carter was released. Despite his standout performances in training camp he wasn't making the grade during live action.
I'm putting this season on the coaches. With all the injuries, it will really come down to how well the coaches do their job in getting all the newbies ready for the season.
