An ugly game got even uglier when Jonathan Stewart was carted off. Here's the latest on that:

UPDATE: The team later confirmed that Stewart suffered a sprained ankle.

So hopefully he will only miss a couple weeks, maybe 4? Sucks not matter what it is but it could be worse.

Some Highlights:

  • Cam Newton went 6 for 15 for 60 yards and a TD. Newton was erratic to say the least, showing nice touch on some throws.
  • LB Luke Kuechly looked good again; the defense gave up some plays but always tightened in the red zone
  • DE Thomas Keiser now has a sack in all three preseason games
  • S Reggie Smith had a nice INT and played well on special teams
  • The offensive line got abused at times
That's all I got now...Panthers win it after holding off a late Tim Tebow drive.
