Post practice update

As promised....

DeAngelo Williams did not practice on Wednesday, Head Coach John Fox citing a knee injury. It isn't thought to be serious--in fact, it may not even be an injury, more like a pseudo day off. Williams has been seeing a bulk of the work in practice with Jonathan Stewart sidelined with an achilles injury (Stewart did not practice Wednesday either). Both parts of "Double Trouble" were riding in the Tour de Charlotte during practice--meaning they were riding the stationary bikes with Strength coach Jerry Simmons, and 3 others--none of which was named Jon Beason.

Seeing more work at safety with Sherrod Martin of late. Part necessity with both Charles Godfrey and Nate Salley missing work due to injury at this point. Martin played safety last season at Troy, and is finding his way, according to Chris Harris. Somehow, the Panthers are finding ways to get everyone the amount of work they are comfortable with. Certainly a tough job of juggling for the coaches, but in the end, the season will still start on September 13th. The Panthers have to be ready.

Still nothing on the defensive tackle front. The clock is ticking on the Panthers in that regard. Just 2 pre-season games remain to try and get the kinks worked out as best they can.

Injuries have been of the nagging variety for the offense--Fox and company hope to keep it that way through the next 2 weeks.

More before the Ravens fly into town.
