After a few off season injuries, the 2021 Carolina Panthers looked to be all healthy as they open training camp in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Matt Rhule said yesterday that the Panthers who were limited at the end of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) in June have all been cleared for camp.

That changed mildly this morning with the announcement that 2021 seventh round pick Phil Hoskins has been sidelined, at least for the moment with a foot injury.

Being healthy going into training camp is generally a great start for a team, but it is specifically for the return of Trent Scott and Cam Erving. Scott and Erving both missed time during OTAs due to undisclosed injuries and both figure to feature heavily in the position battle for left tackle.

Scott, Erving, Greg Little, and rookie Brady Christensen will all get time on Sam Darnold’s blindside in practice the next few week. Panthers fans will get a chance to see if either year-over-year improvement, by Scott or Little, or fresh blood, from Erving or Christensen will be enough to finally fill Jordan Gross’ still vacant shoes.
