2013 Carolina Panthers Training Camp: Day 14 Twitter Recap

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Here's a recap of today's practice session via Twitter.

Another practice is in the books. Can you believe that there is only one more practice session before the team breaks camp for the year and heads back to Charlotte? Time sure does fly when you're having fun.

Anyway, on to the recap.

Kugbila and Hixon still out of action

This has become a recurring theme in Spartanburg. It appears that they will be out for another week.

If Hixon isn't able to get on the field soon I won't be shocked to see him cut, especially if David Gettis continues to play well.

Here's the full list of those who didn't practice today:

Speaking of roster spots, Ron Rivera has said that they don't plan to replace Zordich on the roster now that he's done for the year with a torn ACL.

Come on Ron, you can never have enough fullbacks.

The OL is in serious trouble

As if things weren't already bad enough for the hog mollies, it appears that one of the backup linemen could be done for the year:

Of course we'll know more as time goes by, but it's a matter of concern for sure. Campbell isn't great, but he's at least decent depth -- which is something desperately needed on the offensive line.

And if you're wondering when Campbell got hurt, it was in the first preseason game against the Bears:

I hope Campbell doesn't have to miss the whole season. He may not get a lot of playing time as a 2nd string offensive lineman, but knowing he's there in case of emergency is better than the alternative.

Starters to get more playing time in Philly

The starting unit will play more this week than they did last week:

This isn't a surprise. Teams build up the playing time for the starters during the first three games and then give them most of the day off in the 4th game.

Kicker battle all but over

It was going to take a lot for Morgan Lineberry to unseat Graham Gano as the placekicker anyway, but Gano isn't losing his spot according to Joe Person:

He certainly looked good on the 50 yarder he banged through against Chicago. Hopefully that's a sign of what's to come this season.

Miscellaneous notes

The Panthers used an unlikely receiver at punt returner this afternoon.

I'm not sure why LaFell was fielding punts, unless he's preparing for some sort of emergency punt return role this season.

Or, it could just be because they needed a third person, and Adams was on the shelf for today's practice.

I'm not sure if LaFell has any experience fielding punts, but I'm not opposed to seeing him give it a try in one of the last three preseason games.

On a good note, it appears that James Dockery's surgery was a success:

Here's to a speedy recovery, James. Hopefully you can be back on the field soon.

Armanti Edwards wants to prove to everyone that he can play WR in the NFL.

If the first few weeks of camp are any indication, I would say the light finally came on for the QB turned WR. Let's hope he keeps up the momentum and produces when the games count.

Well, that's it for today's recap. Stay tuned tomorrow for the final recap of training camp.
