Panthers Waive OG/C Thomas Austin, Place WR Lamont Bryant on NFI List

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Carolina Panthers made two roster moves today, as they waived former Clemson guard/center Thomas Austin, and placed wide receiver Lamont Bryant onto the "Non-Football Injury" list.

The 26 year old Austin was signed by the Panthers a day after they lost Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil to his season ending Lisfranc injury. Austin would go on to play in four games at guard and center, starting one.

Lamont Bryant signed with the Panthers as a UDFA following the 2012 Draft. Bryant is a very intriguing prospect due to his size and elite athleticism. The former Morgan State tight end flashed his ability in the 2012 preseason, when he caught a 79 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jimmy Clausen. According to Joe Person, he has been bothered by a hamstring injury this offseason.

The Non-Football Injury list is the same as the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, but it is assigned to players who are unable to practice due to conditions unrelated to football.
