- Breathe easy Panther fans: rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin just has a bone bruise.
- Get ready for the Carlos Hyde-hype machine to kick in to overdrive as Kendall Hunter is now out for the year with LaMichael James out a month. All of this could lead to Hyde being the first running back off the board in rookie drafts.
- In a positive sign, rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will split first team snaps with Matt Cassel. The arrow is pointing up on Bridgewater to start the season and provide the most impact from this years rookie quarterback class.
- All signs point to Bengals running back Jeremy Hill being the primary back up to Gio Bernard in Cincinnati. Hill is bigger and faster (and cheaper) and should get some decent playing time right off the bat in Hue Jackson’s run-based offense.
