Workweek starts for Carolina Panthers

1 of 3

As Monday, August 3rd began, most people woke up and headed to their 9am-5pm job, which seems like a routine for most of us.  However, for the Carolina Panthers, it seemed as if they were starting a new job.  Yes, training camp has been in session now for three days, but this was the first Monday, so called first day of the workweek, for the players and the second day of practicing in pads.

Like a new job, the players have to get acclimated to the routine and although initially slow, things pick up and adjustments are made.  But what are a few things the Panthers showed and discovered to start the new workweek?

For the second day in a row, another injury occurred and this injury could hamper the potential for the season.  As we discussed previously on a weekend review of training camp, wide receiver Stephen Hill hurt his knee Saturday and it was revealed on Sunday, Hill had a torn ACL and was waived by the team. The big news today was defensive tackle Star Lotulelei has a stress reaction in his right foot.  The thing with this injury is that this is the same foot he suffered a broken bone in prior to the Seattle playoff game last season.  Star is going to be re-evaluated in a few weeks, however, is this is chronic injury?
