Panthers activate Hogan from the PUP list


The Carolina Panthers football team announced a lot of moves the team has made but the biggest of those moves is the team has activated its forth round pick, cornerback Brandon Hogan from the physically unable to perform injury. This means that Hogan will now be an active member of the team and be able to suit on on Sundays.

Hogan has missed the entire season so far with a knee injury but could provide some much needed depth at cornerback and returning punts. During his four year career with the West Virginia Mountaineers he was a three year stater, finishing his career with seven interceptions and 171 tackles.

The team has also placed starting linebacker Thomas Williams on injured reserve with a neck injury. Williams is now the third starting linebacker the Panthers have had to put on injured reserve this season along with Jon Beason and Thomas Davis. Williams had done a pretty good job filling in for Davis, as he was used mostly in coverage, racking up 13 tackles on the season.

The team also made a few practice squad moves, as the team signed defensive end Thomas Keiser from the practice squad. The team also cut linebacker Lawerence Wilson who was busted for having maryjiwanaa in his car over the bye week. Filling in those two players places the Panthers signed defensive tackle Jason Shirley and linebacker Philip Dillard.
