Panthers place CB Ross Cockrell on IR; sign OT Adam Bisnowaty

The Panthers made some roster moves this afternoon.

According to multiple reports the Carolina Panthers made some roster moves this afternoon when they placed cornerback Ross Cockrell on injured reserve and picked up offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty, who was waived by the Lions yesterday. Bisnowaty is a former sixth round pick of the New York Giants (2017).

The Panthers’ decision to pick up Bisnowaty is likely two-fold. First, Ron Rivera likes to bring in multiple ‘diamonds in the rough’ during training camp to see if he can find anything worth adding to the 53-man roster. Second, with the injury to Daryl Williams a few days ago, the Panthers probably wanted to add an extra body to the offensive line for running drills during practice. Bisnowaty checks off both of those boxes, so here we are.

I wouldn’t expect Bisnowaty to make the final roster, but stranger things have happened in the NFL. At the very least, he’ll give some of the guys who will make the roster a few breaks during drills for the next few weeks.

Stay tuned for any future developments or changes to the roster.
