3

He seems to have torn the lateral meniscus in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season. Can anyone provide information on this type of injury?

Kugbila out for the 2014-2015 season

1

Kugbila needs back surgery, and the procedure will force him to miss the entire 2014 season. "I feel awful for the kid," Gettleman said. "This kid has done absolutely everything we've asked him to do. He just can't catch a break. He's having the surgery up in New York on August 8. He'll be done for the year."

Stewie to miss 1-2 weeks

The article is predominately related to Cam Newton and Greg Hardy, but makes a note at the end about Jonathan Stewart pulling a hamstring in workouts.

Panthers signed G/C Kevin Matthews. Matthews is the son of Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews and the brother of Falcons rookie OT Jake Matthews. However, he's not quite as talented. Kevin has appeared in 17 career games, making three starts. He'll compete for a roster spot. Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter

Sammy Watkins is one sick dude!

I understand that one should be thankful for what they have but damn...I want one of those! Sammy Watkins just made a tremendous catch of a ball two feet past him during Bills training camp.

Terrific article on SI about Kenjon Barner

1

Some great details about all of the work he is putting in. Mention's he worked out with LeSean McCoy for a short time of the off season, a lot of time with this trainer, bulked up physically and mentally as well.

Who's this "CARSON" in the secondary?

3

At least they corrected his FIRST name. Earlier, they insisted on calling him "Antonio". Wish I had screen-shotted that one. A "Caisson", which may be the origin of his surname, is a deep foundation, also called a caisson foundation. It's often made of timber, steel or concrete. The Panther's secondary needs one.

Will Atlas Shrug?

4

Slightly old, but an excellent article from a converted Cam Newton-hater chronicling just how dependent the Panthers offense has been on Newton through his first three years relative to any other quarterback in NFL history, including the likes of Peyton Manning, Warren Moon, and Matt Ryan despite the dearth of weapons and eroding offensive talent around him since he was drafted.
