Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:38:33 -0700
The Carolina Panthers are deep at tight end, with starting TE Greg Olsen and reserve TEs Ed Dickson, Brandon D. Williams and Richie Brockel projected to make the final 53-man roster. In fact, if they keep four tight eneds, it would likely mean they keep eight offensive linemen instead of nine.

Carolina Panthers TE Mike McNeill (knee) has been slowed by a nagging knee injury, and TE Brandon D. Williams has emerged as a solid player in training camp and the preseason, making McNeill expendable.

The Carolina Panthers will keep six wide receivers with WRs Jason Avant, Kelvin Benjamin, Brenton Bersin, Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery and Tavarres King as the projected members of the 53-man roster. The team could still look to pick up a receiver or kick returner off waivers after the final roster cuts Saturday, Aug. 30.

Carolina Panthers QB Joe Webb looked expendable until QB Cam Newton (ribs) suffered a fractured rib in the third preseason game. Now, head coach Ron Rivera appears fairly adamant the team will keep three quarterbacks until it is clear Newton is healthy, and maybe longer.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. "There's no doubt in my mind," Newton said.
Fantasy Tip: If Newton is unable to play, Derek Anderson would likely get the start. For now, Newton is a risky play for the regular season opener, and he could easily have a setback if he is hit the wrong way in Week 1. Fantasy owners should try to have plenty of depth on hand if they have already drafted Newton, or plan to do so.

Fantasy Tip: While this should be considered good news, Newton is still a risky Week 1 play because of questions at wide receiver as well as his health. Be cautious on draft day if Newton is still on the board.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has a little over a week to recover from his rib injury, which should be enough time. Owners probably should not consider using Newton in Week 1 because of the questions at wide receiver, and he is facing a solid Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.
