Panthers training camp 2018: Curtis Samuel and Bryan Cox pass physicals; are practicing today

The Panthers received some good news this morning.

According to a tweet from Jourdan Rodrigue, the Carolina Panthers received some good news on the injury front regarding wide receiver Curtis Samuel and defensive end Bryan Cox, Jr. as the two players have passed their physicals and are now eligible to come off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and practice with the rest of the team.

If you’re wondering whether or not the Panthers will put those two players at risk this morning given the wet conditions (it’s raining at Wofford, y’all) . . . Jourdan has your answer.

Hopefully these guys don’t overdo it today, but it will be nice to see Samuel and Cox out there on the field. If Samuel can stay healthy, I believe he will bring a lot of much-needed speed and flexibility to the Panthers offense in 2018, and if Cox is able to get consistent reps during camp, I think he has a shot to make the 53-man roster as a rotational option at defensive end.

Practice is just now underway, so be sure to head over to our live tracker and open thread to keep up with everything that’s going on today.
